  • Posted: December 09, 2016
  • Reference ID: 30501-en_US

At MetLife, we seek to make a meaningful impact in the lives of our customers and our communities. 


In January 2016, MetLife announced a plan to pursue the separation of a substantial portion of its U.S. Retail segment. Once separated, the new business will be called Brighthouse Financial.


Brighthouse Financial will serve customers the way they want, need and deserve. It will focus on eliminating the complexity, confusion and cost that can get in the way of many Americans who are seeking financial security. We will bring products to the market that add value to our customers’ lives, and will be guided by a common set of values that focus on the customer and drive accountability.


Brighthouse Financial is seeking high-performing team members who are passionate about the company’s mission.  We are laser-focused on adding value to our customers and minimizing complexity in every decision and action. We are building high performing teams who set the bar high and hold each other accountable.


This position will be responsible for Statutory and GAAP projections (earnings, RBC, dividends) and analytics (stress testing) within Brighthouse’s Life Insurance business ($250.0mn+ annual earnings).  This is a new dedicated position within the Brighthouse’s Financial Projection and Analysis group designed to facilitate innovative approaches towards enhancing shareholder value.  In addition to strong modeling capabilities and technical knowledge of life products, effective communication skills would be very beneficial, as this position affords extensive opportunities to work with various groups across the firm (e.g., Actuarial, Investments, ALM, Treasury, Risk, Pricing, Accounting, etc).
