About Athene Careers 888-266-8489

Financial strength. Deep experience. Driven to outperform.

Pension plan liabilities have become increasingly difficult for companies to manage in today’s market and regulatory environment. Plan buyouts totaled $26 billion in 2018, according to data from LIMRA’s Secured Retirement Institute, a 14% increase from 2017. As a leader in innovative solutions for pension risk mitigation, Athene is well equipped to be your partner at any stage of the plan termination process.

Uniquely Positioned to be Your Solutions Provider

At Athene, we pride ourselves on our ability to deliver individually tailored solutions that outperform for plan sponsors, administrators and participants. Our confidence is driven by a singular blend of strength, experience and expertise.

  • Strong, with a core focus on the retirement services market

    Rated “A” by S&P, A.M. Best and Fitch1, Athene is an experienced manager of insurance liabilities and the assets that support them. Our strong financial performance is driven by our multi-channel business model, prudent risk management, and ability to maintain differentiated capabilities on both sides of the balance sheet. Providing our customers the means to a financially secure retirement is the exclusive focus of our business.

  • A high quality, well diversified investment portfolio

    At Athene, fixed annuities are our focus. Our spread-based business is managed by a seasoned leadership team with deep experience in a variety of market environments. As of December 31, 2018, 94% of our available for sale fixed maturity portfolio was designated NAIC 1 or 2, which is comparable to the life insurance industry at large. But while similar in credit quality, our investment performance, net of fees, and our asset impairments have been better than the industry.

  • Deep experience in pension risk transfer

    Athene has a team of fully dedicated PRT specialists with extensive experience in transaction management, asset management, operations and administration. Our capabilities allow us to deliver a full spectrum of innovative, holistic pension risk transfer solutions that ensure the financial security of plan participants.

  • Certainty, focus and speed

    We have the resources, experience and management expertise to successfully design, execute and close transactions on your timeline. We work closely with counterparties to achieve mutual goals and then follow through on our commitments.

  • Exceptional service capabilities

    When your plan participants become members of the Athene family, they will have access to an online benefit center and a premier call center. We have a proven track record for pension risk transfers and are committed to delivering outstanding customer service.

Thought Leaders in a Complex and Evolving Market

Plan sponsors seek de-risking solutions that meet their unique needs. At Athene, we combine deep industry experience with a relentless focus on new ideas that shape the pension risk transfer landscape.

Today’s Insights

  • The Case for Annuity Buy-ins
    Are annuity buy-ins finally taking off in United States? This historically underutilized pension risk management solution is the perfect hedge to market and insurer capacity risks. It gives plan sponsors the opportunity to de-risk now, while providing the flexibility to convert to a buy-out later at little, or no, additional cost. A plan sponsor can use a buy-in to lock-in pricing and reduce exposure to these risks during the extended period of time involved in a plan termination process.
