Ten years ago, as our financial system was engulfed in the worst crisis of the modern era, OneAmerica didn’t just weather the storm; we led our industry. And our stewardship value is why.
During that time of epic upheaval, our steady approach allowed us to provide peace of mind to customers and to keep investing and growing, rather than focusing on financial problems.
We have a longstanding commitment to effective risk-management, which positioned us to stay strong during the crisis. It’s why we outperformed our industry — achieving an actual investment-portfolio gain from 2007 to 2010, even as the industry suffered significant losses.
Throughout the crisis, we examined ourselves to see how to become even better. We learned many lessons about consistently communicating with our customers and partners through challenging times, and managing with intention under pressure.
The values that allowed us to lead the industry 10 years ago remain in place today. And our role is the same: to be here for American families through good times and bad.
