The Strength of Guardian
Founded over 150 years ago, Guardian is committed to protecting individuals, business owners, and their employees with a wide range of high-quality insurance and financial products and services. To do this, we work through a network of over 3,000 talented Financial Representatives in more than 80 agencies across America.
We Put Our Policyholders First
Guardian is a mutual company, which means that our policyholders own the company not shareholders. Our mutual structure allows us to act differently than other companies. Rather than focusing on short-term profits, we put our policyholders' interests first, providing them with the best protection at the lowest cost, and distributing the profits we earn in the form of dividends.*
Guardian has earned high ratings for its financial strength and claims paying ability from the four leading rating agencies. Among these ratings are A++ (Superior) from A.M. Best, AA+ (Very Strong) from Standard & Poor's, and Aa2 (Excellent) from Moody's.** As of December 31, 2011, Guardian held more than $35 billion in assets.***
