Best's Briefing: Improved Operating Results Drove U.S. Life/Annuity Capital Moves in 2013

OLDWICK, N.J. --(Business Wire)--

A.M. Best's analysis of 20 publicly traded, U.S.-based life/annuity companies shows the increased ability and willingness of management to return excess capital to shareholders through share repurchases and cash dividend payouts. Since 2009, insurers have returned more than $33 billion (38% of industry operating earnings) to investors through capital management activity. This is expected to continue in 2014 as life insurers have shown increased profitability and improved balance sheet strength, and they have sizable share repurchase program in place.
