A proud subsidiary of MassMutual
In 2021, we were acquired by MassMutual, one of the largest life insurance companies in the U.S., founded in 1851. They were drawn to our company because of our continued growth as a leading annuity provider and long-standing reputation for providing superior customer service. We continue to operate as an independent subsidiary of MassMutual, which allows us to stay focused on serving your unique needs, while leveraging the investment capabilities, reputation and financial strength of MassMutual.
