We are a leading provider of risk, savings and investment management products in the UK. Established in 1836, we’ve been in business for 175 years, which not only gives us credibility but it demonstrates our experience in every kind of economic climate.
We are responsible for investing £370 billion worldwide (as at 30 June 2011) on behalf of investors, policyholders and shareholders. We also have over seven million customers in the UK for our life assurance, pensions, investments and general insurance plans. We are one of the UK’s top assurance companies for financial strength.
We recruit, by the middle of March, a limited number of graduates each year in order to meet our demands for actuarial students. This policy means that all of our new actuarial trainees have specific responsibilities from the moment they join the company.
