Lincoln Financial Says Last Quarter Looked Good: Earnings
February 11, 2020 by Allison Bell
Executives from Lincoln National Corp. — a company better known as Lincoln Financial Group — are telling roughly the same kinds of earnings story that colleagues at other life and health insurers have been telling this month.
All sorts of headwinds could have caused problems in the fourth quarter of 2019, and could still cause problems later, but, really, earnings were good.
Dennis Glass, Lincoln’s chief executive officer, said in a comment about the results that the numbers demonstrate the company’s long-term track record of strong financial performance.
“Throughout the course of the year we grew sales, diversified our mix of business, appropriately adjusted our assumptions, and continued to execute on our expense initiatives, all of which positions us to continue to drive long-term shareholder value,” Glass said.
