About us

Protecting today, investing in tomorrow. Together we are mutually responsible. 

Royal London is the largest mutual life, pensions and investment company in the UK, and in the top 25 mutuals globally. We offer protection, long-term savings and asset management solutions in the UK and Ireland - and our mutuality is as relevant as when our business was first established. We remain committed to helping customers build their financial resilience and, through our investments, we aim to help build a world worth retiring into. 

Our Purpose

Royal London is a purpose-driven mutual. Our Purpose ‘Protecting today, investing in tomorrow. Together we are mutually responsible’ is who we are and why we exist as an organisation. It guides our strategy, shapes our culture and informs our long-term response to trends that influence members, customers, intermediaries and society.

Proudly customer owned since 1861

Being a mutual is at the heart of our Purpose. We were founded as a Friendly Society in a coffee shop in 1861 by two men named Joseph Degge and Henry Ridge, before becoming a mutual in 1908. 

Today, we're the UK’s largest mutual life, pensions and investment company and we’re just as proud to be one of the remaining mutuals as we are to be one of the first. 

Our mutuality means we generate value for members, customers and wider society, not shareholders. We use our profits to improve our propositions and services for customers and financial advisers, to maintain our financial strength and to support social impact initiatives.
