About Global Atlantic
Global Atlantic was founded in 2004 as Goldman Sachs Reinsurance Group. It incorporated as a privately held company in 2013 under the name Global Atlantic Financial Group Limited. The organization acquired multiple business lines, and in 2016, all services and products were officially branded as Global Atlantic.
KKR & Co. Inc., a leading global investment firm, acquired approximately 60 percent of Global Atlantic in 2021. As a result, Global Atlantic now operates as a consolidated subsidiary of KKR.
Global Atlantic’s website says the company’s success “is driven by a unique heritage that combines deep product and distribution knowledge with leading investment and risk management capabilities, alongside a strong financial foundation.”
According to Business Wire, the company has reinsured about $80 billion of assets from its inception in 2004 to 2022.

Annuity Products Offered by Global Atlantic
Global Atlantic issues a diverse range of annuity products. Two subsidiaries, Forethought Life Insurance Company and Commonwealth Annuity and Life Insurance Company, issue the annuities.
Fixed annuities offer a locked-in interest rate for your earnings. Global Atlantic offers two fixed annuity product lines: ForeCare, with long-term care benefits, and SecureFore, with three time frames for growth to choose from.
Variable annuities have the highest growth potential — and also carry the greatest risk — of all the annuity types. You can choose from nearly 100 underlying investments with Global Atlantic’s ForeInvestors Choice product.
Fixed Index Annuities
The growth of these annuities can be credited in one of two ways: as a fixed interest rate with a specific interest percentage, or index-linked, with the earnings tied to the success of a market index such as the Standard & Poor’s 500 (S&P 500).
Global Atlantic currently has three fixed index annuity product lines, including:
- ForeAccumulation II
- ForeIncome II
- Income 150+ SE
Global Atlantic’s ForeCertain income annuities guarantee payments for a set period or for your lifetime. You can begin receiving income right away or in the future.
