Helping people to help themselves. This has always been at our core. We started life as a society with good intentions, founded to help even the poorest families gain a sense of security, and evolved into a mutual insurer in 1908. During the war years, female employees joined our ranks and played an integral role in helping Royal London adapt, and in the years that followed, we merged, acquired and expanded our business, staying true to ourselves. Today, the products, services and benefits that people need may have evolved, but our ability to work together and deliver for our customers will forever remain.
