Resolution Life Enters Into Reinsurance Agreement With Lincoln Financial Group

·2-min read

WEST CHESTER, Pa., September 17, 2021--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Resolution Life US Holdings Inc., a subsidiary of Resolution Life Group Holdings LP (‘Resolution Life’), a global manager of in-force life insurance businesses, today announced the signing of a $9.4 billion reinsurance transaction between its insurance subsidiary, Security Life of Denver Insurance Company (‘SLD’) and Lincoln National Corporation’s (‘Lincoln’) insurance subsidiary, The Lincoln National Life Insurance Company.

The deal is comprised primarily of bank owned / corporate owned life insurance business (BOLI/COLI) alongside a smaller component of universal life business.

Under the agreement, Lincoln will cede $9.4 billion in reserves and retain administration of the policies. The transaction with SLD is effective as of October 1, 2021 and is not subject to any closing conditions or regulatory approval requirements.

Matthew Grove, Resolution Life US and SLD Chief Executive Officer, said:

"Executing this transaction with Lincoln shows the strength of Resolution Life’s reinsurance offering in the US. It is a great example of our holistic approach to managing diversified insurance risks at scale, and it will contribute meaningfully to the momentum of our US business after the completion of our acquisition of Security Life of Denver earlier this year."

Warren Balakrishnan, Resolution Life US and SLD Head of Corporate Development & Strategy said:

"Resolution Life is focused on creating long-term partnerships with our clients to meet their strategic and financial objectives, while always prioritizing security and stability for policyholders. Our bespoke solution-led model enabled us to work collaboratively with Lincoln, deliver enhanced value, and meet Lincoln’s counterparty risk management objectives. We look forward to working closely with Lincoln."

With this deal, Resolution Life is building on its strong US presence, and further advancing its global scale in in-force life and annuity management, having raised almost $5 billion of capital since 2018.

Wells Fargo acted as financial advisors and Debevoise & Plimpton LLP served as legal counsel to Resolution Life in connection with this transaction.
