AM Best Affirms Credit Ratings of Primerica, Inc. and Its Subsidiaries

Business Wire, October 6, 2021

AM Best has affirmed the Financial Strength Rating of A+ (Superior) and the Long-Term Issuer Credit Ratings (Long-Term ICR) of “aa-” (Superior) of Primerica Life Insurance Company (Nashville, TN) and its affiliates, National Benefit Life Insurance Company (Long Island City, NY) and Primerica Life Insurance Company of Canada (Mississauga, Ontario), collectively referred to as Primerica Life. Additionally, AM Best has affirmed the Long-Term ICR of “a-” (Excellent) of Primerica, Inc. (Primerica) (headquartered in Duluth, GA) [NYSE: PRI], which is the holding company for the group’s insurance and noninsurance operating companies. AM Best also has affirmed the Long-Term Issue Credit Rating of “a-” (Excellent) on $375 million, 4.75% senior unsecured notes, due 2022, of Primerica. The outlook of these Credit Ratings (ratings) is stable.

The ratings reflect Primerica Life’s balance sheet strength, which AM Best assesses as very strong, as well as its very strong operating performance, favorable business profile and appropriate enterprise risk management.

Primerica Life’s ratings recognize the group’s strongest risk-adjusted capitalization, as measured by Best's Capital Adequacy Ratio (BCAR), along with good liquidity, financial flexibility and an investment portfolio that traditionally is more focused on fixed income with no alternative asset classes, as well as very modest mortgage exposure, limited to commercial mortgage-backed securities. Primerica’s product risk is almost exclusively composed of term life insurance, which is viewed as low risk on AM Best’s product continuum. However, the group continues to maintain higher allocations to NAIC class 2 bonds relative to industry averages. Risk-adjusted capitalization ratios are dampened qualitatively by high reinsurance leverage with heavy reliance on captive reinsurance solutions to fund its Regulation XXX reserves, which should moderate over time as new business is issued under principles-based reserving practices. The company also has solid financial leverage and interest coverage ratios that are within AM Best’s guidelines for these ratings. Operating leverage is still within AM Best’s overall GAAP tolerance; however, it is at the upper range, driven primarily by the use of operating leverage related to Regulation XXX reserves.

Primerica Life’s earnings have been consistent with AM Best’s expectations, as the group continuously has generated solid levels of GAAP and statutory net income due to favorable loss ratios, although there has been some uptick in claims as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, although more recently that has tempered. Primerica has demonstrated consistent premium growth in its insurance segment and favorable revenue growth in its investment and savings products segment. The company successfully has been able to pivot life insurance sales efforts during the pandemic. Premium growth has been offset partially by higher-than-industry lapse rates and historically high dividend payout ratios, along with insurance and other operating expenses as the company continues to invest in infrastructure. Primerica Life’s operating profile benefits from noninsurance revenue that represent a substantial portion of overall GAAP revenue, through the sale of mutual funds and other investment savings products, along with distribution of other manufacturers’ annuity products, which generates fee-based revenues and provides a source of earnings diversification.

The pandemic created strong demand for financial solutions for Primerica Life, which is one of the largest writers of term life insurance in the United States, with a continued strong market position attributable to its dedicated distribution affiliate, Primerica Financial Services, LLC. This integrated distribution includes approximately 135,000 life agents with almost 26,000 mutual fund-licensed representatives across the country. Primerica Life’s business profile in the United States and Canada is reinforced further by its experienced management team, which successfully built and supports its sizable sales force. However, its business model is heavily reliant upon the need to recruit agents continuously to maintain its competitive advantage, and the COVID-19 pandemic initially created some challenges with agent licensing. However, this has since normalized.

Offsetting rating factors is Primerica Life’s somewhat narrow insurance business profile focus, which has been focused on term life products. At the same time, however, Primerica continues to expand its affiliated relationships, and AM Best notes a new mortgage brokerage program initiated in partnership with Quicken Loans, whereby Primerica’s licensed mortgage loan originators can now broker mortgage loans in an effort to diversify its business profile further. Furthermore, Primerica announced the acquisition of e-TeleQuote, a direct-to-consumer broker focused on distribution of Medicare Advantage policies, for approximately $600 million to diversify its business profile further.

The Primerica Foundation Donates $25,000 to Blessings in a Backpack Orlando Chapter

Yahoo Finance, August 31, 2021

The Primerica Foundation has announced a $25,000 donation to the Blessings in a Backpack Orlando Chapter to help feed elementary school children who might otherwise go hungry on the weekends.

“The Primerica Foundation focuses on helping families meet their critical needs and becoming self-sufficient in order to build a more secure financial future,” said Kathryn Kieser, Primerica Executive Vice President and Chair of The Primerica Foundation. “We are proud to support Blessings in a Backpack in their efforts to feed thousands of hungry school children in Central Florida every weekend.”

“This gift could not have come at a better time,” said Sarah Carlson, Managing Director, Blessings in a Backpack Orlando Chapter. “Since school has resumed, many of our existing programs have requested an increase in service to provide Blessings in a Backpack for more students, and requests for new programs continue to come in each week. This gift will allow us to provide food on the weekends for 200 additional children every weekend of this school year. We are truly grateful to The Primerica Foundation, and we absolutely love their practice of leaving good wherever they go.”

About Blessings in a Backpack

Blessings in a Backpack mobilizes communities, individuals, and resources to provide food on the weekends for elementary school children across America who might otherwise go hungry. As closures caused by COVID-19 lead to a rise in unemployment and poverty, it is projected that 18 MILLION CHILDREN* are experiencing food insecurity. That’s one in four American children who may be struggling with access to food. In Central Florida, that figure is closer to one in three.

The consequences of hunger are much more than a growling stomach. Poor nutrition can result in a weaker immune system, increased hospitalization, lower IQ, shorter attention spans, and lower academic achievement. Children are fed during the school week by federal government programs. We want to make sure they’re getting nutritional meals over the weekend, too, so that they can show up for school on Monday nourished and ready to learn.

Valdosta Daily Times, September 9, 2021

Duluth – Primerica, Inc. (NYSE: PRI), a leading provider of financial services in the U.S. and Canada, is releasing its latest quarterly Middle-Income Financial Security Monitor – a national survey of middle-income families measuring their financial situation. The survey found that 65% of middle-income families feel positive about their current financial situation; however, an equal share (65%) says their income is falling behind the cost of living, up 9% from April. Primerica’s Financial Security Monitor measures changes in the sentiments of middle-income families about their finances.

“We’re encouraged that most middle-income families are optimistic about their financial situations, although they are feeling the pressure of rising inflation,” said Glenn J. Williams, CEO of Primerica. “We also see that more than half of these families are taking responsibility to improve their financial situation by saving for the future and protecting their families with life insurance, and even more families are considering taking similar actions. These steps are especially important today, as people are reporting increased prices on everything from gas to eating out to going to the movies.”

Key Findings from Primerica’s U.S. Middle-Income Financial Security Monitor

  • Nearly everyone has noticed increasing costs of goods and services. This includes gas (94%), local home prices (92%), groceries (91%), housing costs (90%), restaurants/bars (84%), health care (80%), entertainment – movies, sporting events, concerts (75%), taxes (73%), and childcare (73%).Additionally, concern about paying for food and groceries has grown from 12% to 17% in the past year.
  • About half have life insurance, but Covid-19 is increasing interest among middle-income families. About half (53%) of individuals report having life insurance, and 19% have life insurance policies outside of work of $100K or less, 10% have policies between $100-$300K, and 4% have policies worth more than $400K. Among those who do not have a life insurance policy outside of work, 10% of say they are more interested in finding out about purchasing life insurance because of Covid-19.
  • Topline Trends Data: As concerns over rising inflation are starting to emerge, middle-income consumers remain positive about their personal finances.

Primerica Sees Higher Term Life Persistency: Q2 Earnings

Original link

Allison Bell, ThinkAdvisor, August 6, 2021

What You Need to Know

  • Primerica said “clients remain focused on the future and planning for retirement” amidst the pandemic.
  • AIG reported $91 million in net income for the second quarter, marking a turnaround from the year earlier.
  • Brighthouse Financial reported $10 million in net income, another turnaround as the pandemic eased this year.

Primerica says its customers are clinging to their term life coverage more tightly than usual.

Persistency is up, and “clients remain focused on the future and planning for retirement,” the Duluth, Georgia-based life insurer said in its earnings release for the second quarter, which ended June 30.

But the COVID-19 pandemic continues to push the term life death claim total to a level that’s higher than normal, the company said.

Primerica (PRI) is reporting $128 million in net income for the second quarter on $655 million in revenue, up from $102 million in net income on $525 million in revenue for the second quarter of 2020.

Here are how some of the company’s distribution performance numbers changed year-over year:

  • Life-Licensed Sales Force:132,041 (down from 134,157)
  • Recruits:89,285 (down from 133,123)
  • Average Number of Policies Sold Per Rep Per Month: 21 (up from 0.18)

The number of term life insurance policies sold fell to 90,071 policies from 94,044 policies.

Spending on sales-based sales commissions increased to $105 million from $63 million.

Here’s a look at some of the life, health and annuity market players that posted earnings so far this week:

American International Group (AIG)

American International Group (AIG) is reporting $91 million in net income for the second quarter on $11 billion in revenue, compared with a $7.9 billion net loss on $9.4 billion in revenue for the second quarter of 2020.

The company’s life and retirement unit is reporting $941 million in adjusted pre-tax income on $4 billion in revenue, compared with $601 million in adjusted pre-tax income on $4.3 billion in revenue for the year-earlier quarter.

The individual retirement unit is reporting $1.1 billion in adjusted pre-tax income on $5 billion in revenue, up from $895 million in adjusted pre-tax income on $4.7 billion in revenue.

Here’s what AIG said happened to net flows of assets for several individual retirement products in the U.S. between the second quarter of 2020 and the latest quarter:

  • Indexed Annuities: A $1.1 billion net inflow (up from a $439 million net inflow)
  • Variable Annuities: A $33 net outflow (compared with a $400 million net outflow)
  • Fixed Annuities:A $552 million net outflow (compared with a $723 million net outflow)

Brighthouse Financial (BHF)

Brighthouse Financial is reporting $10 million in net income for the second quarter on $1.7 billion in revenue, compared with a $2 billion net loss on negative $922 million in revenue for the second quarter of 2020.

The Charlotte, North Carolina-based life insurer says adjusted earnings less notable items, which exclude fluctuations in the estimated value of investments and derivatives, increased to $458 million from $39 million in the year-earlier quarter.

Sales of individual variable annuities increased to $2.1 billion in the latest quarter from $1.3 billion a year earlier. Sales of life insurance increased to $26 million from $12 million.

American Equity Investment Life (AEL)

American Equity Investment Life is reporting a $66 million net loss for the second quarter on $1.1 billion in revenue, compared with a $253 million net loss on negative $920 million in revenue for the second quarter of 2020.

The net results were affected partly by a $501 million increase in the fair value of derivatives.

Operating income, which is calculated differently, increased to $94 million from $93 million. Overall annuity sales increased to $1.2 billion, up 111% from the total for the year-earlier quarter.

Voya Financial (VOYA)

Voya is reporting $459 million in net income for the second quarter on $2.5 billion in revenue, compared with a $66 million net loss on $1.7 billion in revenue for the second quarter of 2020.

Adjusted operating earnings, which exclude the results of operations Voya has discontinued, or is exiting, increased to $353 million from $17 million.

Voya sells a large amount of group life and group disability coverage, through a unit that also offers medical stop-loss coverage, or insurance for employers’ self-insured health plans.

The company’s group life loss ratio increased to 88.2% for the latest quarter from 83.8% for the year-earlier quarter.

Group life results included about $13 million in claims related to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The company ended the quarter providing or administering medical coverage for about 1 million people, up from about 932,000 a year earlier.

Mitsubishi Electric Classic's Birdies for Charity Program Makes Donations to Local Programs

Gwinnett Daily Post, July 12, 2021

Together, the Gwinnett Championship Foundation and Primerica donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to local 501(c)(3) organizations through the 2021 Mitsubishi Electric Classic’s Birdies for Charity program.

This year’s Birdies for Charity beneficiaries included Annandale Village, Cooper’s Crew, Grayson Cluster Schools Foundation, Special Needs Schools of Gwinnett and the Women’s Club of Sugarloaf Country Club. The Mitsubishi Electric Classic, a PGA Tour Champions tournament, is held annually at TPC Sugarloaf in Duluth.

“We’re thrilled with the success of this year’s program,” said Kathryn Kieser, executive vice president, chief reputation officer and chair of The Primerica Foundation. “Meeting with the deserving organizations and hearing their unique stories was enlightening. This donation will help them make a positive impact in the communities where we work and live.”

The tournament’s Birdies for Charity program provides metro Atlanta non-profit organizations with a unique opportunity to raise funds to support their respective missions. Participating charities generate contributions leading up to tournament week, and in the end, the charities receive 100 percent of every donation collected on their behalf, plus additional matching funds.

“Primerica was an exceptional partner, and we couldn’t be more pleased with the result of this year’s program,” says Monte Ortel, executive director of the Mitsubishi Electric Classic. “On behalf of the Mitsubishi Electric Classic and the Gwinnett Championship Foundation, we want to thank Primerica for their outstanding support.”

Since the inception of the Birdies for Charity program in 2016, the Mitsubishi Electric Classic has helped raise over $1.5 million toward metro Atlanta charities.

Most Middle-Income Canadians Feel They’re Not Making or Saving Enough

Survey reveals many have improved their financial situation, but others are still worried over financial goals

Leo Almazora, Wealth Professional Canada, May 12, 2021

Over the course of the pandemic, research has shown the emergence of a K-shaped recovery, with a lot of divergence happening along the income divide. But it seems that even within the middle-income segment, there are points of difference.

Primerica Canada has just released the results of a poll conducted in January, which looked at over 800 adults across Canada whose 2020 incomes were between $30,000 and $100,000.

Among the middle-income Canadians surveyed, 75% shared a feeling that their income is falling behind their costs of living. When it comes to savings, seven tenths (71%) expressed a belief that they’re not doing enough to retire comfortably.

When asked to evaluate their own financial situation, 48% rated their personal finances as either “excellent” or “good.” On the other hand, just 30% gave similarly positive ratings when it came to the economic health of their community.

“I am amazed by the resiliency of Canadians in the face of some tough economic conditions,” Primerica Canada CEO John A. Adams said in a statement.

“Our study finds that nearly one-in-three families improved their financial situation over the past year, and nearly half feel they will be better off a year from now than they are today. But we also see that many families are having a tough time financially.”

The struggles of many families are evident in the contours of statistics around financial improvement. Among 18- to 34-year-olds, for example, 40% reported that they were financially better off compared to the previous year. That number drops to 29% for those aged 35 to 49, 32% for 50- to 64-year-olds, and 28% of those aged 65 and up.

Looking at families’ financial resilience, the survey found that 42% can’t afford to pay $1,000 or more for an emergency expense. And a little over a third (36%) reported financial reserves amounting to a month or less in expenses, leaving them woefully exposed if a major breadwinner were to be laid off or pass away.

Looking at Canadian families’ savings behaviour, 69% of respondents said they have a savings account, and 19% have investments placed in non-retirement accounts.

And while most Canadians have access to retirement accounts, around one third (34%) said saving for retirement was their greatest worry. Making rent or mortgage payments (29%) and the state of their finances (28%) were also top worries.

When it comes to steps Canadian families have taken towards financial security over the past year, 26% said they’ve added to a savings account; 20% have approached financial professionals for advice; 19% drew up or stuck to a budget; and 18% added to an investment account.

New Primerica Study Finds Income Is Falling Behind the Cost of Living for Many Canadians

May 11, 2021

A new study from Primerica Canada (NYSE: PRI) finds 75% of middle-income Canadians feel their income is falling behind cost of living, and 71% do not believe they are saving enough to retire comfortably. In spite of this, nearly half of all families feel positively about the condition of their personal finances.

"I am amazed by the resiliency of Canadians in the face of some tough economic conditions," said John A. Adams, CEO of Primerica Canada. "Our study finds that nearly one-in-three families improved their financial situation over the past year, and nearly half feel they will be better off a year from now than they are today. But we also see that many families are having a tough time financially. No matter the situation, Primerica’s representatives stand ready to help people with the education and resources they need to help them build a more secure financial future."

Key Findings from Primerica Canada’s Middle-Income Financial Security Monitor

  • Canadians feel they’re doing better financially than their neighbors. 48% rate their personal finances positively (either "excellent" or "good"), but only 30% rate the economic health of their community positively.
  • Young people in Canada experienced the greatest financial improvement over the past year. 40% of 18-34-year-olds report being financially better off than the previous year. Just 29% of those ages 35-49, 32% of those ages 50-64, and 28% of those ages 65+ say they’re better off.
  • Canadian families are living on a financial cliff. 42% of families can’t afford an emergency payment of $1,000 or more. 36% report having only a month or less in financial reserves, so their families would immediately struggle if a primary breadwinner lost their job or passed away.
  • Many Canadian families are saving for the future and protecting what they have, but they could do more. 69% have a savings account and 19% have investments in non-retirement accounts. Additionally, only 34% have a life insurance policy provided through work, and just 33% have a policy purchased outside of work.
  • Saving for retirement is a chief worry among middle-income Canadians. 34% say saving for retirement is their greatest worry, followed by making rent or mortgage payments (29%) and the state of their current finances (28%). Despite the worries about retirement savings, most Canadians do have access to retirement accounts.
  • Many Canadian families have taken steps towards financial security over the past year. 26% have added to a savings account, 20% sought advice from financial professionals, 19% created or followed a budget, and 18% added to an investment account.
