“Given the strong cultural alignment between the firms and a shared emphasis on client focus, long-term relationships, transparency in product design and risk mitigation, M Financial was top of mind when we sought a best-in-class partner” said Tony Garcia, president and CEO of TIAA-CREF Life Insurance Company.
