About us

We are one of the world's largest providers of life insurance, pensions and asset management. We started life as Scottish Equitable in 1831 and, over the years, we’ve evolved our brand. We’ve combined our UK heritage with our global strength, while staying committed to our original purpose; to help people take responsibility for their future and achieve a lifetime of financial security.

Increasing options for you

After buying Cofunds in 2016 we became the largest platform provider in the UK and we now offer over 4,000 investment options (December 2019) for both advisers and customers.
