Company Overview

Over 170 years of helping people with their financial progress. Goosebumps.
It all started back in 1847 in Philadelphia. Since then we’ve come a pretty long way with a nice balance of innovative solutions and unwavering commitment to helping people find their fiscal footing and get stronger.

For our entire history, we’ve worked at setting ourselves apart from the industry by creating custom, individual life insurance policies for our clients. Never using a generic, one-size-fits-all approach to building someone’s future. It’s this approach that’s kept us in business since our founding in 1847 in Philadelphia. And helping generations of families feel the serenity and confidence of a secure financial future will keep us going for another 170 years — and for many years long after that.

Penn Mutual, emphasis on mutual
That means we’re not owned by anonymous stockholders. Instead, we’re owned by policyholders. It’s no wonder that everything we do is in their best interest.

As a mutual company, we take a long-term perspective with the goal of maintaining our strength and stability for the long haul. We make a lot of commitments to our policyholders, and our long-term focus is a big reason we’ve been able to keep those commitments.


Our shared commitment
We are doing what’s right today, together, for the promise of a brighter tomorrow. The feelings are mutual: Care. Respect. Belonging.

Dedication to Diversity and Racial Equity

Doing the right thing
Our long-standing commitment to diversity and inclusion is woven into our business practices, our community investments, and our organization’s culture of respect and belonging. Doing the right thing is in our DNA. We share the sentiments of those throughout the world, promising to do better. To listen. To reflect. To do more.
