"What we have achieved in just a decade is testimony to our determination and our vision.  But any vision, no matter how brilliant, is just a pipe dream without the financial maturity of a parent such as Pacific Life."

Duncan Hayward
Chief Financial Officer | Division


Our successful growth over the past decade is built upon two key platforms - the smart way we think about our business and the unprecedented way in which we operate around the world.  We believe our spirit and passion makes us unique, and we know it is our superior management and financial stability which makes us strong. 

To stay brave in this market, we must be resilient and this means having a solid financial foundation, which protects and preserves us in any situation. 

Our principled and pragmatic approach has seen many significant achievements including:

  • $1.6 billion* in earned premium income
  • $439 million* annualised new business premium generated by the Australian office in its second full year of operation
  • 59% new business growth generated by the Asia office in 2017
