American Equity We're the One


Culture/Values Statement
At American Equity, we view “culture” as the attitude employees bring to work every day; their beliefs and thought process when working with our policyholders, distribution partners and each other. It’s the habit of doing the right things and doing things right. It’s the ideologies and principles we model today and then pass on as our legacy for team members who come after us.

Our culture didn’t happen by chance. It was instituted early in the company’s existence and pillared from our guiding values:

Commitment to Service - Our policyholders and distribution partners are why we are here. We do our best every day to provide them with the highest possible
level of service.
Integrity - Our values of honesty, fairness and truthfulness inform how we interact with our stakeholders.
Excellence - Our activities/actions surpass ordinary standards.
Safety - Our policyholders have sleep insurance® knowing we provide principal protection and guaranteed income they cannot outlive.

We understand that people drive our success. We recognize each person brings a unique set of gifts and talents to the workplace. Working together as a team within a framework of shared values is what makes American Equity an extraordinary place to work.

Vision Statement
At American Equity, our vision is to become the premier insurance company specializing in retirement savings and income products.

Mission Statement
We deliver on this vision through best-in-class service to our distribution partners and policyholders, developing high quality products that protect our policyholders’ future, providing an employee work culture that models our values, and generating financial returns that enhance shareholder value.
