Best's Special Report: U.S. Life/Annuity Insurance Industry Sees Limited COVID-19 Impact on Operating Performance Metrics


AM Best benchmarking analysis of rated U.S. life/annuity (L/A) insurance companies showed that not only did COVID-19 have a limited impact on operating performance, those insurers with an assessment of very strong have not reported an operating loss in two decades.

In its Best's Special Report, titled, "Limited COVID-19 Impact on U.S. L/A Operating Performance Metrics," AM Best states that operating performance is a leading indicator of future balance sheet strength and long-term financial stability. Benchmarking is an essential element in AM Best's rating process, as it allows for comparisons of the performance of a rating unit to its peers, composites and the industry.

Main takeaways from the analysis include:

"Despite the increase in mortality risk, the impact on insurers with longevity exposure has been offset by longevity benefits and the increase in claims has not significantly diminished the industry's solid pretax operating results, which grew by over 30% in 2021 compared with 2020," said Jason Hopper, associate director, AM Best.
