In 2006, MetLife was on the verge of committing to acquire Travelers Life and Annuity from Citigroup for more than $11 billion.

With some project crunching, they felt they could complete the project in 18 months. MetLife CEO Robert Benmosche, thought for a moment and told CIO Steven Sheinheit, do it by November 1st -- in seven months! (O’ Donnell, 2006)
