Canada Life International secures 5-star AKG rating

Canada Life International (CLI) has been awarded an overall five star rating by AKG for a seventeenth consecutive year, making it the only offshore insurer to have maintained the rating over that time. Following an analysis by AKG Financial Analytics, the rating reflects the assessment of various aspects such as Financial Strength, Image & Strategy, and Business Performance for the businesses in the Isle of Man and Dublin (Canada Life International, CLI Institutional and Canada Life International Assurance Ireland respectively).

In awarding the rating, AKG noted the positive effects of CLI’s strategic product and administrative changes, improvements to its online capabilities, and the strong support of its parent company, Great West Lifeco, one of the largest life companies in the world with some £807 billion* in assets under management.

Sean Christian, MD & Executive Director - Wealth Management Division, said:

“I am delighted with the outcome of AKG’s 2019 review of our International businesses. The results recognise our unwavering commitment and belief in the UK intermediated market which remains steadfast and that as market leaders we continue to enhance our proposition to meet the evolving needs of advisers and their clients.

"Over the coming months we will be sharing exciting plans to enhance key product lines and also our online Adviser Connect portal, supporting advisers to create efficiencies and meet their regulatory obligations."
