Asteron Life has been a specialist life insurance company for more than 185 years, aiming to help people protect what’s most dear to them. It’s a founding principle that’s been at the heart of everything we’ve done since our very beginning – from the first life insurance policy we wrote (which happened to be Australia’s first) in 1833. Since then we have come a long way.
