WELLESLEY, Mass. – (July 28, 2017) – Sun Life Financial U.S. has renewed its lease with Assurant, Inc. at 2323 Grand Boulevard in Kansas City, maintaining Sun Life’s presence there after completing its acquisition of Assurant’s employee benefits (AEB) business last year.

Additionally, Sun Life recently signed a partnership with the Kansas City Royals through 2020, which includes the season-long diabetes fundraiser ”Strike Out Diabetes,” and the annual YMCA youth fitness P.L.A.Y. clinic and Home Run to Health program.
