Industry Overview

Description

Companies in this industry underwrite life insurance and related products including annuities, long-term care, disability, and accidental death and dismemberment policies. Major companies include MetLife, New York Life, and Prudential Financial (all based in the US), as well as AEGON (the Netherlands), AXA (France), Nippon Life (Japan), and Prudential (UK).

Competitive Landscape
