20th consecutive year the life insurer earns high rating

WINDSOR, Conn., Aug. 23, 2016 - Vantis Life Insurance Company today announced that A.M. Best, the independent financial services rating agency, has affirmed its A- (Excellent) rating with a Stable Outlook.

In its report on the company, A.M. Best said, the solid rating reflects "strong brand recognition" and ongoing "growth of ordinary life premiums."

"Vantis Life continues to strengthen its brand by marketing bank-sold protection-oriented life insurance products to the middle market," A.M. Best said in its notification to Vantis. "Its products are easy-to-sell and easy-to-buy in the financial institution channel."

"Clearly, we are pleased with this high A.M. Best rating - a rating maintained for the 20th consecutive year," said Peter Tedone, Vantis Life's President and CEO. "We believe this rating reflects our ongoing solid, conservative financial profile as well as our aggressive business plan to provide customers of financial institutions with easy access to a comprehensive suite of life insurance products."
