Our life insurance business markets and sells products that provide a personal financial safety net for individuals and their families. These products provide protection against financial hardship after the death of an insured. Some of these products also offer a savings element that can help accumulate funds to meet future financial needs. In 2009, we implemented new marketing strategies and enhanced sales support services and product offerings. A key objective of these efforts was to further assist producers selling to our primary target market of main street consumers, that encompass the middle market and emerging affluent market, who purchase policies with face amounts of $1 million or less. Embedded in these services are a simplified fulfillment process and streamlined underwriting which enable high volume, low-cost processing for policies being sold in these markets. Within our primary target market, we have also launched, and continue to launch, additional products, services and marketing strategies focused on consumers who purchase policies with face amounts in excess of $500,000.
