Lincoln Financial executives, led by President and CEO Dennis Glass, rang the closing bell Nov. 7 at the New York Stock Exchange to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Lincoln’s listing on the exchange.

Since being listed in 1969, Lincoln has grown into one of the largest publicly traded life insurance companies in the United States. Originally headquartered in Fort Wayne, it now calls Radnor, Pennsylvania, home.

Glass, according to a news release, shared that, “While much has changed over the past 50 years, one thing that has remained consistent is Lincoln’s focus on helping Americans create a better financial future for themselves. Our long-term success is tied to the ongoing commitment of our 12,000 talented employees to do what is best for our customers as they plan for retirement and seek to protect their families, savings and income.”

The company’s digital transformation continues to improve the customer experience by making it easier for customers to apply and purchase insurance, access account information and file claims, according to the announcement.

The company is also proud of its differentiated workplace that “reflects today’s inclusive culture by valuing multiple perspectives, diverse backgrounds and different abilities,” according to the release. Lincoln exceeds industry benchmarks for women and minority populations, was a proud initial signatory of the CEO Action for Diversity and Inclusion in the Workplace and has received several awards for Diversity and Inclusion.

The company reported $261 billion in assets under management as of Sept. 30, with over 17 million customers.
