The LifeComps Index™ is a unique historic commercial mortgage loan investment performance index created in 1997 for the life insurance industry to serve as a benchmark for privately held commercial mortgage whole loans.


The LifeComps Index™ will publish quarterly total returns and cash yields for the commercial mortgage portfolio owned by its Participant life insurance company members.

  • Returns are derived from actual historic loan transaction data
  • For its Participants, the LifeComps Index™ tracks total return, cash yields, underlying real estate collateral operating performance, and basis point loss on a stand alone and comparative basis including attribution analysis
  • The LifeComps portfolio consists of commercial mortgages owned by the ten life insurance companies that are LifeComps Participants:
  • Allstate Life Insurance Company • Principal Financial
  • AXA Equitable • Prudential Insurance Company of America
  • CIGNA • Sun Life
  • John Hancock • Symetra
  • Northwestern Mutual • TIAA


  • All Participant data is managed by third party consultants and disclosure of results is subject to antitrust guidelines which protect the confidentiality of each Participant’s data


The Index and FAQs sections of this site present this quarter’s published data and provide in depth background about LifeComps.


The LifeComps Index™ encourages new life insurance company participation to make the index as broad as possible.
