About us

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.


We have grown with the times, and changed to meet the developing needs of generation after generation of Australians – but what has made us such a long-lasting, valued company has always been our spirit of service, and our understanding of just how valuable life is.


Today we’re a proud member of the Suncorp Network, a company with $97 billion in assets, and over 9 million customers. 


Asteron Life is a signatory to the life insurance industry’s Code of Practice.

It's important that you get the highest standards of service in all your dealings with us. That’s why we have adopted the Life Insurance Code of Practice. It’s the life insurance industry’s commitment to mandatory customer service standards and it’s designed to protect you, our customer. Find out more
