"Transparency Lays the Foundation for Building Consumer Trust" Says VantisLife Insurance Company President

VantisLife Achieves National Ethics Qualification

WASHINGTON, DC--(Marketwire - August 25, 2009) - VantisLife Insurance Company has attained qualification in the Insurance Marketplace Standards Association (IMSA), the leading independent standards-setting organization for the life insurance, annuity and long-term care insurance marketplace.

"In the wake of our nation's economic crisis, transparency lays the critical foundation for building and sustaining our customers' trust," said VantisLife President Peter Tedone. "Consumers have a right to work with a life insurance company who has had its business and market conduct practices qualified as ethical by an independent third party."

IMSA President & CEO Brian Atchinson applauded VantisLife Insurance Company for successfully completing the rigorous, independent review of its marketing, sales and compliance practices necessary to attain IMSA qualification.

"We congratulate VantisLife Insurance Company on this significant achievement," said Atchinson. "Demonstrating dedication to high standards of ethical business practices has never been more critical in the marketplace."

IMSA is the premier standards-setting organization for the life insurance, annuities and long-term care insurance marketplace for individually sold products. Qualified companies commit to maintaining high ethical standards and to being fair, honest, and open in the way they advertise, sell and service their products. The IMSA seal is a guidepost of excellence and integrity for consumers. For more information, or to download the recently released Annuities Consumer Guide in English or Spanish, visit
