MetLife Inc., the New York-based insurer that traces its roots to the 1860s, has come up with a new name for a U.S. retail unit that’s slated for separation. The business will be known as Brighthouse Financial once it’s broken off from the parent company.
The insurer is seeking to give a fresh identity to the U.S. operation that offers annuities and life policies such as disability insurance and life insurance policies to individuals. As of today, July 2017, it is unknown how this change will affect current Metlife policy holders. Attorneys Dell & Schaefer is monitoring the changes at MetLife and is keeping our clients matters updated accordingly.
