New York Life attained record-setting adjusted operating earnings of $928 million in 2003. In addition, the Company's surplus and asset valuation reserves grew by $2 billion, driven by $1.3 billion in organic growth generated from net gain from operations and capital gains, and the remainder from our surplus notes issuance, bringing total surplus at year-end to $10.8 billion - the highest in Company history.
In light of these strong financial results, we were able to maintain the dividend levels paid to participating whole life policyholders, reaffirming the fundamental principles behind New York Life Insurance Company's mutuality.
