Legal & General Retirement America Surpasses $1.6 Billion in Premiums for 2020
Year-over-year growth exceeds 40% as company continues to meet the rising demand for Pension Risk Transfer
Stamford, CT - December 17, 2020 – Legal & General Retirement America (LGRA) today announced it has exceeded $1.6 billion in pension risk transfer (PRT) deals transacted this year, resulting in year-over-year growth of more than 40% from 2019 to 2020. LGRA completed 17 transactions in total over the last 12 months with seven deals occurring in Q4 alone. These deals have resulted in secured coverage for over 26,000 participants.
In addition, LGRA completed its largest transaction to date independent of reinsurance, totaling over $350 million. Since 2015, LGRA has written over $5 billion in total US volume (2015: $445 million; 2016: $448 million; 2017: $713 million; 2018: $844 million, 2019: $1,140 million, 2020: $1,615 million), and is poised for continued success in 2021.
Despite the challenging environment brought on by the global pandemic, I’m thrilled with the continued progress we’ve made in 2020.
The resiliency seen across the market serves as validation that PRT remains important to plan sponsors. With a total addressable market in excess of $3 trillion, we believe the prospects for continued growth are strong and we look forward to continuing to assist companies in ensuring they can honor the financial commitments they made to their employees.
