This website may contain forward-looking statements and cautionary statements. Forward-looking statements generally are indicated by words such as “expects,” “intends,” “anticipates,” “plans,” “believes,” “estimates,” “will” or words of similar meaning, and include, without limitation, statements regarding the outlook of our business and expected financial performance. These forward-looking statements are subject to changes and uncertainties which are, in many instances, beyond our control and have been made based upon our assumptions, expectations and beliefs concerning future developments and their potential effect upon us. There can be no assurance that future developments will be in accordance with our expectations, or that the effect of future developments on us will be as anticipated, particularly given the uncertainty relating to the COVID-19 pandemic. We do not make public specific projections relating to future earnings, and we do not endorse any projections regarding future performance made by others. Additionally, we do not publicly update or revise forward-looking statements based on the outcome of various foreseeable or unforeseeable events.
Forward-looking statements are not guarantees of future performance or outcomes and involve various risks and uncertainties. There are certain important factors that could cause actual performance and outcomes to differ, possibly materially, from expectations or estimates reflected in such forward-looking statements. These factors include, among others: (1) potential for difficult conditions in the economy, which may not improve in the near future, and risks related to persistently low or unpredictable interest rates; (2) fluctuations in the markets for fixed maturity securities, equity securities, and commercial real estate, which could adversely affect the valuation of our investment portfolio, our net investment income, our retirement expense, and sales of or fees from certain of our products; (3) lack of liquidity for certain of our investments; (4) risk of investment losses and defaults; (5) the impact of major public health issues, like COVID-19; (6) differences between actual experience regarding mortality, morbidity, persistency, expense, surrenders and investment returns, and our assumptions for product pricing, establishing liabilities and reserves or for other purposes; (7) changes in our experience related to deferred policy acquisition costs; (8) advances in medical technology and testing, which may increase our adverse selection risk; (9) potentially adverse rating agency actions; (10) potential inability of our insurance affiliates to pay dividends or reinsure business to our Bermuda reinsurer due to constraints imposed by insurance regulatory requirements; (11) failures or limitations of our computer, information security and administration systems; (12) failure to complete and implement technology initiatives in a timely manner; (13) natural or man-made catastrophes resulting in increased claims activity from catastrophic loss of life or property; (14) the effects of global climate change; (15) the highly competitive nature of the insurance and annuity business; (16) potential difficulty in attraction and retention of qualified employees and agents; (17) the introduction of alternative healthcare solutions or changes in federal healthcare policy, both of which could impact our supplemental healthcare business; (18) adverse determinations in litigation or regulatory proceedings which may result in significant financial losses and harm to our reputation; (19) significant changes in government regulation; (20) changes in tax law; (21) changes in statutory or U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (‘‘GAAP’’), practices or policies; (22) potential changes in the availability, affordability, adequacy and collectability of reinsurance protection; (23) potential default or failure to perform by the counterparties to our reinsurance arrangements and derivative instruments; (24) potential employee error or misconduct, which may result in fraud or adversely affect the execution and administration of our policies and claims; (25) potential ineffectiveness of our risk management policies and procedures; (26) the effects of unanticipated events on our disaster recovery and business continuity planning; and (27) potential ineffectiveness of our internal controls over financial reporting.
