Our history

While many carriers have retreated from or exited the institutional markets, New York Life has demonstrated its commitment through all economic climates and plans to continue doing so. New York Life Insurance and Annuity Corporation, issuer of BOLI and COLI products, is a wholly owned subsidiary of New York Life Insurance Company. Throughout its over 175-year history, New York Life has built a reputation for financial strength and sustainability.

As a wholly-owned subsidiary of New York Life, the largest mutual life insurance carrier in the U.S.2, NYLIAC can take the long-view and focus on what's in the best long-term interests of policy owners, as opposed to short-term interests of shareholders of a publicly held corporation. With the experience and confidence gained from successfully navigating the economy’s ups and downs, we can assure our more than 2,000 institutional market clients that we are a reliable and dedicated partner. Even though we can’t predict the future, we are always poised to help our clients prepare for whatever lies ahead.
