About Us

How does a company get to be over 150 years old, while still staying relevant today? The answer lies in maintaining a strong set of values while keeping our clients’ needs primary in everything we do. As a mutual insurance company, we are owned by our policyholders who share in Guardian’s actual financial results through annual dividends*. These payments are determined by the firm’s profits, and Guardian has paid a dividend every year since 1868. We take the very long view, invest soundly, and maintain a strong capital base that enables us to meet our insurance commitments today and far into the future. Our sole responsibility is to our clients and policyholders, and that is reflected in everything we do. 

BUILT FOR THE LONG TERM

With a legacy that began in 1860, Guardian has successfully weathered many market cycles. Our clients rely on us to be here when they and their loved ones need us. Our recognition of that requirement has shaped the firm throughout the years, enabling Guardian to prosper and grow.
