1 A registered investment advisor.
Ratings are current as of 4/15/16 and refer to the claims-paying ability of the insurance company and not to the safety, stability, or performance of any investment product. The Comdex is a mathematical ranking used to consolidate financial strength ratings from the four major rating agencies because each rating service uses a different scale. It ranks companies on a scale of 1 (lowest) to 100 (highest) in relation to other companies that have been rated by the rating agencies.
