John Hancock Life Insurance Company
The founding of the John Hancock Life Insurance Company dates back to 1862.
Between its 150-year vintage and the founding father that provided its name, it would be hard to imagine a company with the history or the pedigree necessary to call itself “American” quite like John Hancock has.
John Hancock was acquired in 2004 by Manulife Financial Corporation, a Canadian insurance company headquartered in Toronto. Hancock continues to operate out of its Boston headquarters, where its 601 Congress St. office building has been given the AIA Excellence and Sustainable Design Award for its environmentally friendly design.
