New York Life: Protecting What Matters Most
A message from New York Life CEO Ted Mathas
During the past few weeks, the Coronavirus has spread into our consciousness and our communities, raising concern for all of us. Current events are uniquely unsettling as the outcome feels uncertain not just for our jobs, our economy, and our overall financial security—but also for what truly matters most—our health and safety, and the health and safety of those we care about most.
During the past 175 years—through the Yellow Fever epidemics in the 19th century, the great pandemic of 1918, two world wars, the Great Depression, and the Financial Crisis of 2008-2009—we have been able to show both strength and empathy as we protected the future for our clients and their loved ones.

Walmart’s Promise: Every Day Low Prices – Anytime, Anywhere
Walmart takes our responsibility to bring value to customers and consumers around the globe seriously. In great times of need, there is no substitute for trust and transparency. Given the unprecedented circumstances surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, we have taken additional steps to ensure fair pricing to protect our customers in stores, Clubs and online.
It is our position—always—that our culture of integrity leads all our decisions. We have made it our business to work directly with state authorities to inform them about our deliberate practices and processes. Particularly on Walmart Marketplace, third-party sellers are subject to our Pricing Rule, which automatically unpublishes any items that are offered at substantially higher prices than previous offered to customers (the blocked item will be shown as “out of stock” until it can be taken down). And, we’ve offered up our experience and expertise to help law enforcement and public officials apply proper oversight for transparent and fair pricing. We encourage our customers and members to always reach out to us if they have any concerns or identify any product issues, so we can take swift action.
