MLC Life Insurance and Income Protection

MLC Insurance is one of the largest wealth management and insurance companies in Australia. They specialise in providing investment, superannuation, insurance and private wealth solution for corporate and institutional customers. They currently hold a 16.6% market share for Life Insurance products, and are the second largest superannuation provider in Australia with a 19.5% market share.

With a history that traces back to 1886 as a part of The Citizens’ Assurance Company Limited, MLC has experienced two takeovers in its 127-year history. In 1982, Lend Lease made a partial (50%) takeover of the insurer, and in 1985 it became a wholly owned subsidiary of Lend Lease.

In 2000, MLC was purchased by National Australia Bank
