I also want to thank you for your decision to partner with us to help you secure your future. We know that you didn’t just place your business with us—you placed your trust in us. You are counting on us to keep our word and fulfill the promises we make, often decades down the road. That depth of trust is something we never take for granted. And it’s something we appreciate more than ever.
Most of you have relied on the advice and guidance of a New York Life agent. More than just a highly trained financial specialist, he or she brings to life our commitment to acting with integrity and humanity in all that we do.
Having no shareholders or outside owners, our interests are strongly aligned with yours, just as they have been since we opened for business in 1845. We are accountable to you in all that we do. Our focus is on long-term strength and stability, because that is the foundation for a secure future and a better tomorrow for you and those you care about most.
As we move toward our 175th year in business in 2020 and consider how much the world around us has changed, you can be certain some things will stay the same. Your financial security and peace of mind remains our top priority. And your trust remains our most important asset.
Thank you for choosing New York Life.
Chairman of the Board
and Chief Executive Officer
