We make a Promise for Life to our customers and their families to be there when they need us most – and that’s a great purpose to bring us together at work every day.

Whether it’s our team behind the scenes or those working directly with the people we protect during some of their hardest times, we’re guided by our noble intent and our Promise for Life. We keep our customers at the centre of everything we do, and we are proud to do work that makes an impact on Australian lives.

Life insurance is a critical part of Australia’s safety net, providing customers and their loved ones peace of mind through greater financial security when they are at their most vulnerable. Care and support for customers is the heart of what our industry does. It’s why we do what we do, together.






Our history

We have a long and distinguished history supporting the financial security of Australians since 1886. Over the years, our business has grown and changed, but we’re still guided by the ambition of our founder, James Garvan - to make life insurance accessible to every Australian.
