Corporate Governance


Good corporate governance results from: (i) the independent judgment of the Company's Board of Directors (the "Board"); (ii) the presence of sound processes to ensure that the Board's business judgment is well supported and any issues and risks are identified and discussed, all in a timely fashion; and (iii) the proper exercise of the Board's duties and responsibilities in order to best serve the interests of the Company's policyholders.

The Guardian Life Insurance Company of America encourages all of its constituents, affiliates, subsidiaries and business partners to assess periodically their individual governance practices, giving due consideration to Guardian's basic tenets, which include promoting governance excellence in fact rather than just in appearance, holding the best interests of the policyholder paramount, and, above all, doing the right thing.
