The Yamato Life Insurance Company (大和生命保険, Yamato Seimei Hoken Kabushiki-gaisha) (TYO: 0018) was a life-insurance company in Japan. Yamato's headquarters were in Uchisaiwaichō, Chiyoda, Tokyo.[1] It was founded on September 20, 1889, and was capitalized at ¥12,086,963,000. It has policies valued at ¥34,500,000,000.[citation needed]

The company filed for bankruptcy on October 10, 2008 after the global financial crisis significantly devalued its assets [2][3] particularly mortgages in Nevada. Its assets would later be acquired by the American-based insurance company Prudential Financial.
