Great-West SecureFoundation® — Backed by Great-West Life & Annuity Insurance Company
After the financial crisis in the late 2000's, the way people began thinking about and planning for retirement changed. Suddenly, the company behind an investment became as important as how an investment performed. Trust, credibility and strength took on new importance for investors.
We recognize that our actions as a company can have a long-term effect on your retirement. It's something that's guided our approach to business since the Great-West Family of Companies* got their start with The Great-West Life Assurance Company in 1891. For over 100 years, we've helped our clients through challenging economic times by doing business the right way. Great-West Life & Annuity Insurance Company is a leading provider of employer-sponsored retirement savings plans. We also provide annuity and life insurance products for individuals, families and businesses.
Even though the Great-West Family of Companies has been around a long time, we are also an innovative company. Markets change. People's needs change. We have to change to meet those needs. Offering Great-West SecureFoundation® is a good example. Many people are looking for a way to protect their future, long-term retirement income from market losses, while benefiting from market gains. They want to stay invested when markets go up. And they want retirement income for the long term. That's why we at Empower Retirement developed and are proud to offer quality products such as Great-West SecureFoundation. With Great-West SecureFoundation, we are continuing our long history of conservative, disciplined risk management.
