Assumption Life distinguishes itself through its high-level leadership
 
At Assumption Life, we demonstrate leadership, rigour and courage in the way we fully assume our responsibilities to our colleagues, our clients and our communities. This is expressed in tangible ways in our daily actions at all levels of the company.
 
"Since the first days of our foundation in 1903, Assumption Life has been promising to make a difference, and this leadership has allowed us to stand out in many ways. Through all our actions, we strive for excellence and to surpass ourselves," said Sébastien Dupuis, president and CEO of Assumption Life.
 
This exceptional leadership can be seen primarily in the form of noteworthy achievements such as reaching a profitability target of $7.5 million last year. The investment and retirement line outperformed the market and reached the $1 billion mark in assets under management. Our financial strength was once again confirmed with an A - (Excellent) rating from the A rating agency. M. Best for the twenty-first consecutive year, which represents an important vote of confidence for our partners and clients.
 
Assumption Life has also distinguished itself by its real commitment to its communities through our philanthropic efforts. The company donated more than $450,000 last year to 111 organizations and causes to which we are pleased to join forces to contribute to a better world.
 
However, beyond the numbers, there are the people who exemplify this core value. The recent crisis at COVID-19 highlighted the extraordinary leadership and exceptional adaptability demonstrated by our team. Overnight, our employees transferred our operations to teleworking mode to provide our essential services without interruption to our clients and partners, while maintaining the safety of our staff.
 
"The pandemic highlighted the courage and dedication of each member of our team who demonstrated extraordinary resilience. The leadership of all our employees has enabled Assumption Life to continue to make a difference through their decisions and actions for the benefit of our clients, partners and communities," concluded Sébastien Dupuis in thanking them.
 
Assumption Life's corporate values are : leadership, collaboration, trust and commitment.
