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. We touch the lives of millions of people through our operations, subsidiaries and joint ventures in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Hong Kong, the Philippines, Japan, Indonesia, India, China, Australia, Singapore, Vietnam, Malaysia and Bermuda.
