According to Brookfield Reinsurance, at the conclusion of Q2 2022, its total assets increased from $2,640 million at the end of Q2 2021 to $41,019 million.

The revelation was announced a few months after the company claimed that Q1 2022 had a significant increase in its net income. It had stated at the time that Q1 2022 saw an increase in net income to $128 million from $3 million at the same time the year before.

“With the closure of American National, we now handle over $40 billion in assets, a sizable amount of which are in cash and short-dated liquid securities,” said Sachin Shah, CEO of Brookfield Reinsurance. Now that interest rates are rising, our attention is turned to investing in these assets for value.
