September 8, 2022 – Frankfort, KY – Investors Heritage Life Insurance Company (“Investors Heritage”) is pleased to announce it was named to Inc. Magazine’s 2022 Inc. 5000 list. This is Investors Heritage’s second appearance on the Inc. 5000 list of fastest-growing private companies. With three-year growth of 271%, Investors Heritage ranked 2,185 across all industries nationally in 2022.

“Our growth is a testament to the ability of our team to work with our partners and quickly develop and launch products needed in the retirement planning space,” said Rob Hardy, Chief Executive Officer of Investors Heritage.

Investors Heritage’s growth was driven by its entrance into the Retirement & Savings market in 2018 following its acquisition by Aquarian Holdings. Since then, Investors Heritage has launched three retirement products – the Heritage Builder multi-year guaranteed annuity and the Heritage Income Advantage and Heritage Growth Advantage fixed-indexed annuities.

The ranking is the latest recognition of Investors Heritage’s recent growth. In 2019 and 2022, Investors Heritage topped S&P Global’s ranking of fastest-growing U.S. life and annuity insurers. In 2020, Investors Heritage placed in the top 10, while also providing third-party administration services for two other insurers in the top 10.

John Frye, President of Investors Heritage, said, “While the successful launch of new products has led to our recent growth, it is important that we have made that growth thoughtfully, while not losing sight of our commitment to providing our clients with excellent service or sacrificing our desire for innovation.”
