Asteron Life Insurance and Income Protection

AsteronAustralia’s Life Insurance market is full of innovative and highly competitive wealth management funds, but not many can claim they wrote the first Life Insurance policy in Australia. Since 1883, Asteron Life has been providing Australians with long-term financial security, sustainable premiums, and reliability, fairness and responsibility to clients and advisers.

In 2010, the company paid more than $248 million to over 3100 customers Australia-wide.

Today, they are proud members of the Suncorp Group, an Australian leader for general insurance, banking and wealth management.
