However, low investment income led to a loss of earnings in categories such as general annuity. According to the Federal Reserve, since 1930 life and annuity insurers have been the largest investors in the US capital market, and consequently are highly exposed to bond financing and real estate investments. As a result, life insurers' investment incomes fell sharply in 2009 due to the collapse of the financial market and the subprime mortgage crisis. Volatility in the stock market reduced demand for annuity products.
