Athene Operating Subsidiaries Ratings

Three rating agencies meet annually with Athene to review and rate our performance. These ratings are independent opinions reflecting our ability to meet ongoing obligations to our customers.1

A.M. Best

“The company’s strong trend of earnings and organic capital growth has enabled AHL and its operating companies to strengthen their balance sheets while providing sufficient capital support for growth. Athene has demonstrated a consistent trend of strong profitability and sales growth. This includes recent pension risk transfer growth, solid fixed indexed annuity sales, and the announced acquisition of Voya Financial Inc.’s individual fixed and fixed indexed annuity business via reinsurance."

Outlook: Stable


“We raised our ratings on Athene's core insurance operating subsidiaries to reflect the group's improved business diversification. Historically, Athene's business has been concentrated in retail annuities, which made up over 85% of deposits in 2014. Since then, management has successfully diversified into flow reinsurance and pension risk transfers (PRTs).”

Outlook: Stable


"Athene's financial performance and balance sheet fundamentals remain in line with rating expectations. The company continues to maintain a leading position in the U.S. retail annuity market.

The revision in the Rating Outlook to Positive from Stable reflects Athene's improved business profile, which has benefited from the company's progress on diversifying sources of revenue, earnings, risk, and sustained strong operating performance.”
