American Equity Investment Life Insurance Company, a leading issuer of fixed indexed annuities, celebrated its 100 th Client Appreciation Event recently in Louisville, Kentucky. American Equity representatives hosted more than 300 policyholders and guests for an informal luncheon. The attendees enjoyed an opportunity to learn more about the industry, their individual annuities and ask Company leaders their specific questions.

"It's an opportunity for us to connect with our policyholders and producers. But our most important mission is to tell our policyholders 'thank you' for entrusting us with their money. It makes our work a whole lot more meaningful when we see and visit with the people who are depending on us to keep their retirement money safe," said Ron Grensteiner, President.

Since the Client Appreciation Event program's inception in 2010, American Equity senior management and a rotating group of company associates - from all departments - have traversed the country to meet and discuss the Company's business principles with thousands of people in dozens of locations.
