After several years of decline, the Life Insurance and Annuities industry is headed for recovery, albeit a slow one. While investment losses and decreased income shook up the industry, it is set to continue positive growth in 2016. The positive shift in life expectancy and mortality rates is expected to stimulate demand for annuities, and the stabilizing economy will benefit the industry's investment income.
Operators within this industry are primarily engaged in accepting liability under annuities and life, disability income and accidental death and dismemberment insurance policies. Enterprises within this industry include fraternal organizations, privately held insurers, publicly traded insurers and mutual insurance companies.
