Fidelity & Guaranty Life – Why Work For Us?

We have offered leading-edge life insurance and annuity products for over 50 years through the growing independent agent market. In the late 1950’s, our parent company USF&G identified a need for innovative life insurance and annuity products that could be distributed through its property & casualty agency system. The company launched Fidelity And Guaranty Life Insurance Company in 1959 to achieve that mission.

We introduced our first product, traditional term life insurance, in 1960. Over the following years, we added additional life and annuity products to our portfolio. We consistently built our policyholder base during this period by building products offered through respected independent licensed agents.

The U.S. property & casualty business rapidly consolidated in the 1990s. Our parent company merged with another P&C carrier, the St. Paul Companies. In 1998, we launched our first fixed indexed annuity product. We ranked number three in the industry for overall fixed indexed annuity sales that year*. We subsequently launched additional FIAs and built a strong reputation as a pioneer in this space. Based on our success in the indexed insurance market, a large UK-based carrier, Old Mutual acquired Fidelity And Guaranty Life Insurance Company in 2001. The carrier wanted to use our company as the cornerstone for their expansion into the U.S. market. We continued to strengthen our product portfolio and launched five new FIAs under their stewardship as OM Financial Life Insurance Company. We also introduced our first fixed indexed universal life product.

In 2011, HRG Group, Inc. purchased the company as the foundation of its insurance and financial services group and we became Fidelity & Guaranty Life Insurance Company. Since then, we have launched four new FIAs. We’ve also strengthened our life insurance portfolio by introducing two new indexed universal life products. In December 2013, Fidelity & Guaranty Life, completed an initial public offering. The company now publicly trades on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE: FGL).

Fidelity & Guaranty Life is aware of the valuable contribution skilled and highly motivated employees bring to a company. We recruit talented and committed individuals to our organization and provide opportunities for personal and professional growth in their chosen field as well as in the insurance industry.

Headquartered in Des Moines, IA, with offices in Baltimore, MD and Lincoln, NE, Fidelity & Guaranty Life Insurance Company has employees who are committed to serving our customers who are seeking the safety, protection, accumulation potential and income features of life insurance and annuity products.

Originally Incorporated in 1959 and now under new ownership since April 2011 by HRG Group Inc., Fidelity & Guaranty Life Insurance Company continues to offer its series of focused life insurance and annuity products.

Fidelity & Guaranty Life Insurance Company is proud to be an equal opportunity employer and we offer rewarding career opportunities and growth potential for our employees. We offer a competitive salary and comprehensive benefits package as well as a focus on learning and development, in addition to an organizational culture that works hard and has fun.

    I have been working at Fidelity & Guaranty Life full-time (More than a year)


    I am able to work remotely when it fits my schedule. I am empowered in my role and not micro-managed. There is a spirit of collaboration across business functions with a strong emphasis on customer in terms of solutions and programs we develop. We support and recognize the talents and experience our co-workers bring and respect each other's role. Great senior leadership and business integrity. Transparent communications.


    Business systems are a bit outdated which limits our ability to deliver efficient and effective services, but there is a renewed focus and commitment to modernization.

    Easy Interview


    I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at Fidelity & Guaranty Life (Des Moines, IA) in April 2017.


    Very organized and extremely responsive to any questions I had about the job. I had initially been hired as a contractor through a staffing agency and was always treated as if I already belonged on the team. When this position came open, I was asked if I would be open to a permanent full-time position and applied for the job. Interview process actually occurred while working on the job and working hard to prove that I had the skills needed for the position and was willing to learn while being trained.
