History of Sun Life Financial

When Mathew Hamilton Gault received a charter for The Sun Insurance Company of Montreal in 1865, few could have foreseen that the fledgling company would grow to become a leading international financial services organization.

What a difference a century and a half makes.

Today, Sun Life Financial is an international success story. Our operations, subsidiaries, and joint ventures touch the lives of millions of people in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Hong Kong, the Philippines, China, Indonesia, India, Japan, and Bermuda.
