We offer more than financial products and services.
Financial professionals and clients turn to us for the right solutions and support to reach their financial goals. But that’s not why we’re here. What we do is help people create the kinds of lives they dream about, empowered by financial security and stability.
We were founded in 1879 as an insurance company. Today, we’re a member of the FORTUNE 500® and a global investment management leader. Learn more about the history of our logo.
