Knighthead Annuity & Life Assurance Company

Company overview:

We are focused on one thing – helping our clients and those of our reinsurance partners secure their financial futures through issuance and support of fixed annuities offerings.

Knighthead Annuity & Life Assurance Company is a Cayman Islands based insurance and reinsurance company originally established in response to market demand for a highly capitalized and independently rated insurance carrier that could provide guaranteed, fixed rate annuity products to international clients of global banks and broker dealers. Today, the company has more than 40 highly reputable institutional distribution partners that refer Knighthead Annuity products to clients who are seeking financial products that provide principal protection, guaranteed returns and features that include liquidity, death benefits and a choice of income options to deliver predictable future income.

In 2017, Knighthead Annuity expanded its business to include reinsurance of fixed rate annuity products issued by United States based insurance companies. Together, Knighthead Annuity serves in excess of 25,000 policyholders.

Knighthead Annuity backs its financial commitments with its considerable financial strength of more than $2.5 billion in assets, $300 million of equity and a commitment to the highest levels of support and service to clients and their financial advisors.* Additionally, Knighthead Annuity represents one of a select group of international insurance and reinsurance companies that has been assigned two investment grade ratings from highly respected rating agencies. Knighthead Annuity holds an A- (Excellent) rating by AM Best with a “Stable” outlook. Kroll Bond Rating Agency (KBRA) has assigned the Company an A- rating with a “Positive” outlook. Knighthead Annuity is pleased to offer its clients the financial transparency and validation of the company’s financial strength that comes from its independent ratings.
