The Royal London Group
Royal London was founded in 1861 as a friendly society, becoming a mutual life insurance company in 1908, and growing to become the UK’s largest mutual life and pensions company. We continually strive to make the most of our founding principles of self-reliance, community and putting our members at the heart of everything we do.
What makes us different?
Our mutual status – we are owned by our members, rather than by shareholders, so we are not driven by a need to deliver quarterly shareholder returns
We re-invest profits back in to the business – we share those profits with our members and increase the value of the policies they hold with us.
Specialist businesses in the Royal London Group include Royal London Intermediary, Royal London Ireland, Royal London Asset Management, Royal London (CIS) Ltd, and Ascentric.
