About the partnership between Credit Suisse and MetLife
MetLife is a leading provider of life insurance, annuities and employee benefit programs, and has an over 140 year history of social responsibility, strong leadership, sound investments and, innovative products and services.
Since it first opened its doors as the Metropolitan Life Insurance Company, MetLife has been focused on helping consumers take simple steps to build their financial security.
It’s an approach that has afforded the company enormous success, as MetLife is a recognized leader in protection planning, and retirement and savings solutions, all over the world. In addition to individuals and families, MetLife works closely with FORTUNE 500® corporations and government entities, to provide financial certainties in an uncertain world.
The company has always maintained that financial services needn’t be confusing or complicated, and beginning in 1985, enlisted the help of Snoopy and the Peanuts gang to help spread this message through its advertising.
MetLife’s spectacular growth has been achieved through a combination of organic growth and significant acquisitions.
One of its most stellar acquisitions was the Credit Suisse aided purchase of global insurance provider ALICO.
