2014 was an outstanding year for Knights in Indiana, and an outstanding year for the Knights of Columbus Insurance program as well.
This past year marked our fourteenth consecutive year of growth. For 14 consecutive years, despite economic turmoil and uncertainty, the Knights of Columbus has issued a record volume of insurance. Our $8.24 billion issued volume in 2014 pushed us to a record $96 billion of life insurance in force at year's end. We anxiously await reaching the $100 billion milestone, which we expect to hit later this year. It will cement our position as not only the premier Catholic life insurer, but one of the biggest and best life insurers in North America. Other notable achievements in 2014 also included three major program launches: the introduction of Accelerator Term Insurance, the re-launch of Long-Term Care Plus Insurance, and the unveiling of the Young Adult Insurance program.
2014 was also the year that we surpassed 2,000,000 contracts in force. More brother Knights and more of their family members are trusting the Knights of Columbus to protect them.
These are impressive achievements.
But how did we get there?
There are many reasons, but among them is the fact that we got there because our members understand - just as Father McGivney did more than 133 years ago - that Catholic families need to be protected from financial ruin.
We got there because our members understand - just as Father McGivney intended more than 133 years ago - that the Knights of Columbus can provide that needed protection.
We got there because our members understand - just as Father McGivney would've wanted - that our products are top-of-the-line, while still being flexible and affordable to fit the individual member's needs.
Put simply, we got there because our members trust us.
And why do they trust us? Three reasons: our size, our stability, and our standard.
When it comes to size, you all know that we're one of the largest Catholic organizations in the world, but with nearly $100 billion of life insurance in force and more than $21 billion in assets under management, the Knights of Columbus is also tops in the industry, and is in the top five percent of life insurers in North America, as well as a Fortune 1000 company.
When it comes to stability, the Knights of Columbus is untouchable. For 39 consecutive years, the Knights of Columbus has earned the highest possible ratings for financial strength (A++, Superior) from A.M. Best. There is no more highly-rated life insurer in North America.
And, when it comes to our standard, the Knights of Columbus is committed to being one of the most ethical companies in business. It's not just a wish, it's a duty. We owe it to our founder. We owe it to the faith that we represent. And we owe it to you.
But it's not just a duty either. It's a reality.
This March, for the second year in a row, the Knights of Columbus was named one of the World's Most Ethical Companies by the Ethisphere Institute. It is a great honor, and one that we intend to continue living up to.
So, as we gather here this weekend to celebrate your tremendous achievements in the past fraternal year, what does all of this mean for you and your members?
It means that as a proud member of the Knights of Columbus, you can rest assured knowing that your most valuable fraternal benefit - our insurance program - is here for you and your family when you need it most.
There will come a time in your life - if it hasn't come already - where you will be looking for life insurance to protect your family, or retirement annuities to plan for your golden years, or long-term care insurance to make sure you're taken care of, or disability income insurance to secure your hard-earned paycheck. And, when that day comes, we'll be there.
Here in Indiana, we have set another milestone issuing $165,130,500 in life insurance volume on 1,545 lives, written by these 30 dedicated full time field agents and us 3 full time General Agents standing in front of you. What that does is gives Indiana $1,941,881,964.01 in life insurance in force on our Hoosier members and families on 36,098 life insurance applications. Yet this does not include the many annuity policies helping our members toward retirement, Long Term Care policies helping our members in case of nursing home needs or Disability insurance policies in case our members become disabled! With this latest growth spurt, Indiana should have over 2 BILLION in life insurance in force within the next few years.
I hope you'll take the time to meet with us because we have spectacular products that will help you reach your goals.
I hope you'll take the time to meet with us because we have size, stability, and a standard that you can rely on and believe in.
I hope you'll take the time to meet with us because you'll want the added comfort of knowing that your premium dollars aren't going to cute advertising campaigns or golden parachutes, but to the community and to the Church.
But most of all, I hope you'll take the time to meet with us because you're a brother Knight, and protecting brother Knights is what we do. It's what we live for. We're Knights just like you.
This organization is your organization. This company is your company. Take advantage of it. See what we have to offer.
And, precisely for that reason, I want to take this opportunity to ask each of you, as leaders in your councils and your districts, to be advocates and centers of influence for this great fraternal benefit. The members in your councils respect and admire your abilities and your achievements. And they also respect and value the opinions and perspectives that you have on our organization - and the insurance program included.
Support from district deputies, grand knights, and all of the council officers goes a long way in helping to open the door for our hard-working field agents. These men are brother knights who are trying earnestly and honestly to carry out Father McGivney's mission, and to protect Catholic families. So I thank you in advance for encouraging your councils to let the agent in and to listen to what he has to say.
Congratulations again on a spectacular fraternal year. I look forward to working with you in the days and weeks to come.
