About Us

At Foresters we believe in enriching the lives of our members, their families and the communities they live in. We’re member-based, family-focused, and community spirited. We champion the well-being of families through quality financial products, unique member benefits and inspiring community activities. We share our financial strength with over one million members across the United Kingdom, Canada and the United States. Throughout our 140-year history, our purpose has been to enrich the lives of members, their families and communities. The priorities remain today and will guide our future. As an example, our work with Cash for Kids in their 2014 Mission Christmas Appeal helped nearly 300,000 children to have a better Christmas. The whole campaign raised over £9m and involved 2,660 Foresters volunteers. Together with other charity partners we helped over half a million disadvantaged children in 2014. Forester Life is responsible for funds under management of nearly £3.3bn* and is part of Foresters, the international financial services organisation. Internationally, Foresters has over £15.7bn* funds under management and has been assigned an 'A' excellent rating by A.M. Best.** Safeguarding our members' interests is at the heart of what we do. Being financially strong and responsive, with sound governance and continuing professional service have always helped us to protect our members' benefits. *As at 31st December 2014 **An ‘A’ excellent rating is assigned to companies that have a strong ability to meet their ongoing obligations to policyholders and have, on balance, excellent balance sheet strength, operating performance and business profile when compared to the standards established by A.M. Best Company. In assigning Foresters rating A.M. Best stated that Foresters outlook rating is ‘stable’, which means it is unlikely to change in the near future, assuming Foresters financial strength is maintained and operations grow. A.M. Best assigns rating from A++ to F, A++ being superior and A and A- being excellent ratings. This rating was assigned on 2nd July 2013. Our International Head Office is located at 789 Don Mills Road, Toronto, Canada M3C 1T9. DAC Ref No. 2014272/FM/OT 04/16
