FORECAST 2024: Special Edition


David Levenson
President and Chief Executive Officer

January 2024

This is shaping up to be another interesting year for our industry. We’re coming off a record year of annuity sales and expanded capital investments from private investors. Against that backdrop, we are seeing rapid expansion in the use of artificial intelligence, the possibility of some very disruptive regulation, a continued change in how employees want to work, geopolitical tensions, macroeconomic challenges and, of course, a significant upcoming election in the U.S.

To bring these changes into greater focus, MarketFacts asked C-suite executives to share their thoughts on what 2024 will hold for the industry and how they are preparing to make the most of each opportunity. The 14 participants are members of the Board of Directors of LL Global, Inc.

Our job at LIMRA and LOMA is to help our members navigate with confidence. I think you’ll find the comments from these executives to be helpful in thinking about what is top of mind for you and your company.
