Meiji Yasuda Life

In 1976, Meiji Life Insurance Company became the first Japanese company to enter the U.S. life insurance market with the acquisition of 62.60% of the stock ownership in Pacific Guardian Life. In 1982, it increased these holdings to 84.85%, and in 1985, it purchased the remaining outstanding stock.

On January 1, 2004, Meiji Life Insurance Company and Yasuda Life Insurance Company merged to form Meiji Yasuda Life Insurance Company ("Meiji Yasuda"), one of the largest life insurers in Japan. Today, Meiji Yasuda Life's sales personnel provides a wide range of insurance including individual life insurance and annuity insurance and their related services that satisfy customers through a nationwide network. Meiji Yasuda has established the position as the market leader in the group life insurance sector in Japan.
