SunLife is owned by UK insurance group Phoenix, and is best known for its provision of Over 50s plans which are sold via high profile advertising campaigns fronted by Michael Parkinson.
While SunLife's Over 50s life plans are not great value, it recently launched a no-frills life insurance product for younger age groups, underwritten by Scottish Friendly, which has more going for it.
SunLife has a good record on claims and complaints. as well as a high transparency rating.
These strong scores are enough to leave SunLife qualifying for a Gold Fairer Finance Ribbon in life insurance.
