Foresters Financial Insurance Broker
About Foresters Financial Insurance
Foresters Financial is an international financial services company with an extensive history which started in 1874. Now based in Toronto, Foresters started as a fraternal organization which now, over 140 years later, has become a major provider of life insurance, savings and retirement solutions, group insurance and benefits, and wealth and investment management through a network of financial advisors, and insurance partners such as My Insurance Broker (MIB).
Foresters unique history was influenced by its first leader Dr. Oronhyatekha, one of Canada’s first Native doctors of Mohawk descent to practice western medicine. Dr. Oronhyatekha championed for the rights of women, children, and minorities, insisting on admitting women as full-fledged members of the organization and providing benefits to the orphans of Foresters members. His accomplishments are considered outstanding, especially since he lived in an era where discrimination, racism, and assimilation was ingrained in society.
Dr. Oronhyatekha transformed the Foresters fraternal organization into one of the largest and most successful insurance providers in Canada by extending insurance benefits to the general working public. Today, Foresters has over three million clients and members in Canada, the United States, and the United Kingdom benefitting from the company’s expertise, reliability, and experience that was developed over two centuries.
Foresters is built on ethics and excellence. This is seen in the company’s maintenance of its high standards of professional conduct which is inherent in the company’s Code of Ethics. These policies allow Foresters to protect its clients from increased costs associated with insurance fraud and other unnecessary industry costs.
Foresters is an incredibly philanthropic company, providing $2 million in competitive scholarships for students in Canada, the United States, and the United Kingdom. Foresters also provides almost $10.6 million in funds for community initiatives such as playground builds, beach cleanups, care packages, and family fun days where members can spend quality time with their families at no cost. With the company’s many achievements, Foresters is certainly a role model in the insurance industry.
