BROOKLYN (December 18, 2013) – New York Life, one of the largest life insurers in the world and an iconic New York institution, has formed a multi-faceted alliance with the Brooklyn Nets and Barclays Center.

A member of the prestigious Fortune 100, New York Life will receive in-game signage during Brooklyn Nets home games at Barclays Center, as well as engagement through its Sharing Life Lessons in the Community social initiative.
