"Our role as a financial product provider and a manager of long term savings and pension assets underlies our commitment to CSR, and to our 9,000 employees"
Sir Rob Margetts
Legal & General is an expert provider of risk based products, operating across a number of markets. These include life and critical illness, individual and bulk purchase annuities, group risk and household and income protection.
Legal & General is a leading provider of wealth management products. We distribute a full range of individual and corporate pensions as well as investment bonds, unit trusts and ISAs through IFAs, business partners, banks, building societies and direct to customers.
Legal & General’s with-profits business includes pension and unit-linked products that offer a with-profits option. The business is managed separately from non-profits business and is backed by a financially strong fund enabling us to take advantage of a wide range of investment opportunities.
Legal & General Investment Management is one of the largest asset managers in the UK, providing institutional investors with straightforward, value for money investment solutions. Our product range includes index funds as well as actively managed equity fixed income and commercial property funds.
Legal & General’s principal international businesses operate in the United States, France and the Netherlands. They are active in selected lines of business in individual and group protection and savings.
Legal & General recognises its duty to behave responsibly in these business activities and towards those whom its actions affect. Four years ago we developed a set of policy commitments, known as Guiding Principles, to express how we view these responsibilities. They are reviewed annually to ensure they remain relevant.
