Our rich history of helping families

Foresters Financial is an international financial services provider with a unique history that began in 1874 when we set out to provide access to life insurance for average, working families. More than 140 years later, we provide savings, life insurance, investment and retirement solutions that help families achieve long-term financial health and well-being.

Throughout our history, we have been at the forefront of several milestones in the North American life insurance landscape, often pioneering trends that would later become commonplace. One of our first leaders, Dr. Oronhyatekha, was one of Canada’s first Native doctors to include western medicine in his practice. A man ahead of his time, Dr. Oronhyatekha championed the rights of women, children and minorities. He also insisted on admitting women as full members of the organization and providing benefits to the orphans of Foresters members.

Today, more than three million customers and members1 in the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom benefit from the foundation of experience, expertise and reliability we have built over two centuries. During this time, we have remained steadfast in our commitment to help improve family well-being and each year, we invest millions to support causes that enrich the lives of families and communities.

How can we help you?

At Foresters Financial, we aim to help everyday families achieve long-term financial security. Over 140 years, we have built a foundation of experience, expertise and reliability that helps today’s families plan for their financial future and make a difference along the way.
