- FBL says it maintained solid capital levels partly by slowing the pace of growth at its EquiTrust Life unit. “The EquiTrust Life independent channel had $204.2 million of premiums collected in the fourth quarter of 2008, a decrease of 60% from the fourth quarter of 2007, reflecting the deliberate slowdown in sales in order to preserve capital,” the company says.

- Premiums collected by FBL’s Farm Bureau Life distribution channel increased 21%, to $136 million. Sales of traditional annuities increased 144%, and sales of traditional and universal life insurance increased 3%.

- The derivatives losses are the result of changes in the values of the underlying market indices, not with any writedowns in asset values as a result of credit concerns, the company says.
