A.M. Best Special Report: Mutual Life Insurance Companies -- Staying the Course.
In this article, A.M. Best assesses the state of the mutual life marketplace, noting the bifurcation in the market between the remaining largest mutual life companies and the smaller mutual life companies. The issues faced by the smaller mutual insurers mirror--in many ways--the concerns faced by their similarly sized stock competitors.
With a longer time horizon, mutuals are not driven by short-term profits or stock movements. It also can be said that mutual companies can focus their resources on their current customers (through participating dividends) rather than focusing primarily on acquiring new business--a concern of stock companies in order to generate ongoing growth of revenue.
