Sun Life offers a range of global financial services to both individual and corporate clients—though it is primarily known for insurance. As a whole, it is one of the largest insurance companies in the world, though the majority of its business is in Canada and the United States. Founded in 1865 in Montreal, the company—not without controversy—moved its headquarters to Toronto after Quebec’s adoption of the Charter of the French Language. In its communications, Sun Life often finds ways to play on its name, for example, promising to help people live “brighter lives under the sun.”
