Top 20 Annuity Carriers

This year (2012) has been a tough one for many of the leading annuity carriers.  From all-time low interest rates, new regulations, and higher costs of doing business, most annuity carriers would like to refer to 2012 as a “rebuilding year”.  But even though some carriers were forced to sell off their annuity divisions, others still saw increased sales and decent profitability.
