Guaranty Income Life Company History

In 1926, George A. Foster founded GILICO, growing it into one of the premier life insurance companies in the United States. He did so by methodically building the company’s insurance and annuity expertise, and by creating a place where employees were proud to work. 

Many employees stayed with GILICO for decades, fostering stable and reliable relationships with their customers. Mr. Foster’s son, George A. Foster, Jr., took over the business, successfully expanding it and continuing his father’s legacy of innovation, commitment, and service.  

In a Press Release issued July, 31st 2019 AM Best announced they have placed GILICO under review with developing implications the Financial Strength Rating of B++ (Good) and the Long-Term Issuer Credit Rating of “bbb+” of Guaranty Income Life Insurance Company (GILIC) (Cedar Rapids, IA).

The Credit Rating (rating) actions follow the recent announcement that GILIC has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire Lincoln Benefit Life Company and its affiliates (collectively referred to as LBL). GILIC is a wholly owned subsidiary of Kuvare US Holdings, Inc. (Kuvare).

 The transaction is expected to close by year-end 2019, and is subject to regulatory approval, after which point LBL will be a subsidiary of GILIC. Kuvare anticipates operational and capital synergies for its organizations on a post-acquisition basis. AM Best will continue to monitor the progress of the acquisition and will take further rating action as more information develops.

A subsequent Press Release issued by AM Best on February 21, 2020 announced they have removed the from under review with developing implications and affirmed the B++ Financial Rating.
