Who we are

Helping you look after whats important in your life.

Insuring This Australian Life

As one of Australia’s leading life insurers we’ve learnt that the most important part of life isn’t the stuff we own, but the experiences we share with the people we love. It’s living life. This Australian life.

That’s why we do what we do, protect people, not things, to help you look after what matters most. From covering your children’s education, to keeping up the mortgage payments for the family home or rehabilitation to get you back on track sooner.

Together with our partners we protect almost 4 million Australians and their families, helping  them look after what matters most, so they have the freedom to keep living the life they planned.

Our life story

From our humble origins in 1869, through to today as a leading life insurer, we’ve been in the business of looking after people, not things.

1869

It begins in New Zealand. The Government Life Insurance Office is created there and quickly develops an outstanding reputation as a specialist life insurer.

1990

Our journey continues in Australia. The Government Life Insurance Office is renamed TOWER and enters Australia with the purchase of Adriatic Life Insurance. They have expertise from their base in Europe, and bring more ways for customers to buy.

1993

TOWER increases their reach by purchasing Friends Provident Life Assurance. The financial futures of more Australians can be protected by offering tailored solutions through more advisers.
