Company Summary:

Athene began in 2009 as the financial crisis that resulted to capital demands caused several companies to exit the industry, creating the need for a well-capitalized company that has an experienced management team to fill the void.  

Athene Holding Ltd., together with their subsidiaries is a leader in retirement service companies that issue, reinsure, and acquire retirement savings products created for the growing number of individuals and institutions looking to fund retirement needs.  It is Athene’s role to issue and reinsure these retirement savings products.

James Belardi formed Athene in 2009.  He was the former President of SunAmerica Life Insurance Company and is now CEO of Athene Holding Ltd.  Chip Gillis is another founder who is the former head of Bear Stearns’ Insurance Solutions Group, and served Athene Life Re until he retired in December 2019.
