Foresters Financial Launches Repriced Canadian Term Life Insurance Portfolio with Unique Charitable Campaign

TORONTO--()--Foresters Financial™, an international financial services provider, has introduced new, more competitive term life insurance1 rates in Canada. The re-price is part of an ambitious new strategy to significantly enhance and grow Foresters product portfolio and expand business in Canada over the next decade.

Foresters has lowered term rates for some age and face amounts by as much as 9% - no rates have increased.

To help distribution partners and advisors build their businesses and promote the new term portfolio, Foresters has kicked off a unique Giving More campaign.

As part of the campaign, Foresters will donate $25 to Ronald McDonald House Charities® (RMHC®), for every term policy written and settled between May 1 and June 30, 2017, and is challenging MGAs to match the contribution resulting in a total $50 donation for every Foresters term product sold. HUB Financial and OM Financial have both agreed to participate in the campaign. In addition, Foresters will make a further donation, up to $10,000, to equal the donation of the MGA that raises the most money.

“We are very proud to be able work together with our distribution partners to give more to Ronald McDonald House Charities,” said Knut Olson, President, North America Life Insurance and Annuities. “As Foresters Financial continues to build on our financial strength, we look forward to a new decade of growth that will unlock the tremendous potential of our purpose ─ enriching lives and building strong communities.”

Since 2011, Foresters has partnered with RMHC2 to deliver programs that help provide families with the comforts of home so they can focus on what’s most important: the health of their child. Since the partnership began, Foresters has helped support nearly 16,000 resident families, through more than 330 community volunteer activities.

Foresters new term product portfolio rates are available as of May 1, 2017.
