"Publicly Traded Life and Annuity Issuers Prepare to Talk About COVID-19 With Investors"

From Think Advisor:

* Now, they’ll get to talk about the impact of the pandemic on interest rates, and on general investment market liquidity, and on thoughts about the new Federal Reserve system efforts to keep the private investment markets moving, by buying instruments such as investment-grade corporate bonds.
