Globe Life Inc. (GL) Investigation:

On April 11, 2024, the price of Global Life shares crashed as much as $57, or down about 54%, after Fuzzy Panda Research published a scathing research report entitled “Globe Life (GL): Executives Disregard Wide-Ranging ‘Insurance Fraud’ While They Received Millions in Undisclosed Kickback Scheme.”

The Fuzzy Panda report, based in part on interviews with dozens of former executives and agents, accuses Globe Life’s largest subsidiary (American Income Life, or “AIL”) of engaging in insurance fraud that includes: (1) writing policies for dead and fictitious people; (2) forging signatures; (3) withdrawing funds from consumers’ bank accounts without approval; and (4) using fictitious bank accounts to fund numerous fake policies so agents hit their bonuses.

Fuzzy Panda further reported “[m]ore than three dozen former executives and sales agents said fraudulent business practices began to become widespread at AIL in 2017 as Steve Greer assumed the reins as chief executive and Dave Zophin joined first as executive vice president and then president[]” and “[o]ur interviews with former executives and dozens of former AIL sales agents implicate GREATER than $200 million of fraudulent annual life insurance premium (ALP) written by sales teams.”

In addition, Fuzzy Panda alleges that Globe Life executives ran a $43 million bribery and kickback scheme to make money from the company’s own recruits. The scheme allegedly involved executives’ concealing their ownership of an insurance license testing vendor (Xcel Testing) while directing recruits to Xcel to prepare for their licensing exam.

“We are investigating the propriety of Globe Life’s business practices,” said Reed Kathrein, the Hagens Berman partner leading the investigation.
