Foresters Financial Launches Three New Non-Participating Whole Life Products in Canada

TORONTO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Foresters Financial™, an international financial services provider, has
launched three new non-participating whole life products1:
Non-Par Whole Life, Simplified Non-Par Whole Life and Child Non-Par
Whole Life. The launch is part of an ambitious new strategy to
significantly grow Foresters product portfolio in Canada over the next
decade.

“There’s a great energy and anticipation around the organization’s
future,” said Rob Baboth, Vice President of Sales, Foresters Financial
Canada. “We are committed to providing our distribution partners with
competitively priced products to help them meet the protection needs of
Canadian families. And the Foresters member benefits gives clients so
much more – it’s a winning combination that is unique in the Canadian
marketplace.”

These new permanent products were designed to appeal to the family
market with competitive premiums, guaranteed cash values2 and
valuable built-in features.

  • Non-Par Whole Life: offers flexible
    options including Joint First-to-die or Joint Last-to-die and up to
    $5,000,000 of affordable permanent protection with preferred
    underwriting for coverage above $250,000.
  • Simplified Non-Par Whole Life: provides
    up to $100,000 of reliable, permanent coverage with no medical exams
    required.
  • Child Non-Par Whole Life: offers
    affordable coverage today that can help protect the child’s future
    insurability and provides guaranteed cash value that they can access
    later in life.

All three products include $1,000 in bereavement assistance for the
beneficiaries. Non-Par Whole Life and Simplified Non-Par Whole Life come
with Advance Medical’s Expert Medical Opinion Program3, an
authoritative second opinion on medical issues from some of the world’s
leading experts. Child Non-Par Whole Life has a built-in feature that
waives the premium if the owner dies in an accident4.

In addition to these valuable features, insured clients will be
Foresters members and have access to Foresters Member Benefits5
for the primary insured and their immediate family members. These
benefits, many of which are complimentary, currently include competitive
academic scholarships, financial counseling and discounted legal
services.

Foresters new non-participating whole life products are available as of
