Nippon Life Insurance Company of Japan, one of the world’s largest life insurance companies, recently announced a marketing sponsorship with the Chicago Cubs. The company’s agreement is centered on current Cubs’ player and former Japanese baseball star, Kosuke Fukudome. Say that name three times as fast as you can (make sure there aren’t any children around first).
Nippon Life Insurance Company does have an American subsidiary in NLI America. NLI America offers group term life insurance products and accidental death and dismemberment products. Look for the company’s logo every time you see Fukudome in front of a microphone.
