Despite the global credit crunch and unprecedented economic pressures,
Legal & General America remains among the most financially sound life insurers.
Our conservatively positioned and prudently managed investment portfolio
has served us well during these difficult times. Our portfolio has no exposure
collateralized debt obligations, collateralized loan obligations, credit
default swaps, owned real estate or equities investments. What we do own
is a highly liquid, well-diversified investment grade corporate bond portfolio,
a very highly rated structured and private placement securities portfolio,
and a very highly rated commercial mortgage loan portfolio.
Legal & General America remains well positioned to weather the economic storm and will continue to operate in a financially responsible manner. We intend to be here for the long run, to honor our promises to all our customers and to remain positioned as a highly rated company.
