Forethought named to Ward’s 50 top life and health performers for sixth consecutive year
Indianapolis, IN — Forethought Life Insurance Company, a subsidiary of Global Atlantic Financial Group Limited, once again has earned a spot on the Ward’s 50® list of top life and health insurance companies. This is the sixth consecutive year that Forethought, a growing annuity provider and mainstay in the preneed life insurance business, has been included on this list.
Ward’s 50 is published annually by Ward Group, an Aon Hewitt company and the leading provider of benchmarking and best practice services for insurance companies.
“We are very pleased Forethought has been recognized as a top performing insurance company by Ward’s 50® for the sixth straight year,” said Allan Levine, CEO of Global Atlantic. “The continued recognition is testament to how well Forethought has integrated into the Global Atlantic enterprise and the investments we have made in the Forethought business lines.”
In naming the recipients annually, Ward Group adheres to an objective methodology based on financial and performance metrics analyzing nearly 800 companies over five consecutive years. Insurance companies are evaluated and must pass minimum thresholds of assets and return levels, among other metrics, to be considered for the Ward’s 50® designation.
Each of the top 50 companies is awarded the Ward’s 50® Seal. Each Ward’s 50® company has also passed all safety and consistency screens and achieved superior performance over the five years analyzed. Ward Group has conducted the Ward’s 50® analysis for 25 consecutive years. It is a financial analysis of the insurance industry based on publicly available data and conducted independently of the Ward Group annual benchmarking programs.
