"Variability of Market Index Returns and Insurer Portfolios"

"U.S. insurers’ invested asset portfolio composition has remained relatively unchanged since the financial crisis, despite varying market conditions and a sustained low interest rate environment. Life companies continue to be, by far, the largest investor group among the major insurer types, holding 65% of the industry’s total cash and invested assets as of year-end 2016. Bonds also remain the predominant investment vehicle for U.S. insurers, at 67% of total cash and invested assets in 2016."
