Insular Life is Inlife!
To be Inlife is to be inspired. To be inspired means to be able to enjoy the present while taking charge for what tomorrow may bring.
2017 we celebrated our 107th anniversary, where we officially introduced our newest corporate tagline – Inlife for Good.
Inlife for good is more than a tagline. It is a mirror of what we stand for and what we do as an organization.
As we reflect on our role in the community, these past one hundred years of service have given us the perspective to look through our core and find that our business – that of securing lives, providing peace of mind and security to families over generations -- is inherently good for policyholders, the community, and our country.
We have always shared the bounty of our blessings, the joys of our success and the prosperity of our business to efforts that uplift the individual, the community and the nation, for the common good, for the higher good.
We recognize too, that as a Filipino company, we are here to stay; we are here to journey with our people no matter the circumstances, no matter the challenges, no matter the obstacles. We are here for good.
Insular Life, indeed, is Inlife for Good!
