Proven Team


“Brookfield Annuity is the only company in Canada that is primarily focused on providing group annuity solutions. That degree of specialization makes us unique, and I believe it will make us better at what we do. Our focus guides our experience, our imagination and our effort — basically everything we've got goes into finding group annuity solutions that will meet our clients' needs.”
