Thank you to Brighthouse Financial for being an incredible partner to our foundation and continuing your Presenting Sponsorship status or our 10th Annual 5k/10k and 1 mile fun run for Kids Cancer for the second year! We have been so thankful for the commitment and dedication this company has given to supporting the Isabella Santos Foundation and helping us make a difference for kids fighting cancer. We simply could not do what we do without the community support behind our foundation.
“In January 2016, MetLife announced plans to pursue the separation of a substantial portion of its U.S Retail segment through a public offering of shares, a spin-off, or a sale. The separation would allow MetLife to focus on businesses that have lower capital requirements and greater cash generation potential. As an independent company, U.S Retail would benefit from greater focus, more flexibility in products and operations, and a reduced capital and compliance burden.
This past June, the new company, named Brighthouse Financial, received regulatory and board of director approval to disaffiliate through a spin-off on August 4, and began trading on the Nasdaq Stock Market on August 7.
Brighthouse Financial is on a mission to help people achieve financial security. Our world is changing every day; a company pension is the exception, not the rule, and reaching your 90th birthday isn’t unusual. In these uncertain times, preparing for your retirement has never been so important. We specialize in annuities and life insurance; two essential products that help protect what you’ve earned and ensure it lasts. They work in tandem with the rest of your portfolio.
MeLife and Brighthouse Financial have a longstanding partnership with the Isabella Santos Foundation (ISF). We have participated in the Isabella Santos Foundation Race each year since we moved to Charlotte in 2013, and 2017 marks our second year as Presenting Sponsor. We also hosted an internship consulting project with ISF in the summer of 2016 and are excited to have raised over $50,000 for ISF through our Annual Community Golf Classic which benefited ISF in 2015 and 2017.” – Apryl Silva, Real Estate & Community Relations
