Allstate Closes Sale of New York Life and Annuity Businesses
NORTHBROOK, Ill., Oct. 1, 2021 – The Allstate Corporation (NYSE: ALL) today announced that it has obtained all required regulatory approvals and closed the sale of Allstate Life Insurance Company of New York (ALNY) to Wilton Re for approximately $400 million.
