Do you believe in forever?

We are looking for the optimists. The visionary problem-solvers who believe that life’s greatest ambitions shouldn’t fade in the wake of all the things that could go wrong. The people willing to work hard together to protect our customers against the biggest and most complex risks, and have fun doing it.

It’s a promise to serve others that we’ll hold on to forever, and we’d like you to help us keep it.

who we are

We are not just experts in managing and leveraging life’s biggest risks. We are a culture guided by a creed and on a mission to build an organization that will serve generations to come.

Diversity and inclusion

Our mission

We are on a mission to build one of the world's great companies. This is an enduring journey, because we don't define greatness in terms of short-term growth goals or market share. We define greatness by our ability to serve the needs of those around us long-term.

Diversity and inclusion

Our journey over the last 90 years was powered by bold ideas and diverse perspectives, and our commitment to diversity and inclusion will ensure that we always have both.
