Our purpose: to help Clients achieve lifetime financial security and live healthier lives.

Financial security and a healthy life: We are with you all the way

Life is full of surprises. Some are exciting. Some are difficult. We're here to help our Clients navigate life's most important moments.

We serve millions in Canada, the U.S., Asia, the U.K. and other parts of the world. Through a network of Sun Life advisors, 3rd-party partners and other distributors, we’re enabling our Clients to gain the freedom to live their lives their way, from now through retirement. We’re working hard to support their wellness and health management goals, so they can enjoy what matters most to them – whether that’s running a marathon or helping their grandchildren learn to ride a bike.

To do this, we offer a broad range of protection and wealth products and services to individuals, businesses and institutions, including:

  • Insurance. Life, health, wellness, disability, critical illness, stop-loss and long-term care insurance
  • Investments. Mutual funds, segregated funds, annuities and guaranteed investment products
  • Advice. Financial planning and retirement planning services
  • Asset management. Pooled funds, institutional portfolios and pension funds

We also help our Clients live healthier lives, both as individuals and as part of healthy communities. We do this through programs and initiatives such as:

  • Team Up Against Diabetes – millions of dollars supporting diabetes awareness, prevention, care and research across the globe
  • Health-screening clinics
  • Workplace peer-support programs
  • Disease-prevention programs
