Because Guardian is a mutual company, we’re owned by our policyholders—every single one of them! That means their needs are our one and only priority.

We do the right thing

There’s no right way to a do a wrong thing. That’s been our philosophy since day one. It’s a simple, yet profound principle, and it makes all the difference in how we do business.

People count

People are at the heart of everything we do. Individuals, families and business owners put their trust in us to protect the people who matter to them. And we make it a point never to forget that.

We hold ourselves to very high standards

The people who put their trust in us expect a lot from us. We try to exceed every expectation by performing to the highest standards to make sure we live up to that trust.

Our strategy & mission is grounded in responsibility

As a mutual insurer, we have the ability to make business decisions that will benefit the company over the long term, not Wall Street’s short-term, quarter-to-quarter demands. We follow a conservative risk management philosophy, avoiding overly risky investments and resisting market fads in favor of proven strategies designed to build our capital and protect our financial strength.
