Our founders believed in the notion of living mutual — that the world is better when we look out for one another. That principle has guided us for more than 170 years and is at the heart of our purpose to help people secure their future and protect the ones they love.

Our focus on mutuality and longevity goes hand in hand with our commitment to sustainability.

Sustainability and Mutuality

As a mutual company, we operate for the benefit of our members and participating policyowners, which allows us to manage the company with a focus on their interests and a long-term mindset. Our commitment to sustainability is fundamentally aligned with and ingrained in how we operate and deliver value to our customers, policyowners, employees, communities, and the planet we share.
