How we do business

We do business in a way that puts society first. Where profit and purpose pull in the same direction. Long-term ambition beats short-sighted gain. And the needs of our customers, their communities and our society go hand-in-hand with the expectations of our shareholders.

We call it ‘Inclusive Capitalism’. Because everyone’s invited to share in its success.

Our purpose

Watch our video to find out more about our purpose and how we use Inclusive Capitalism to use capital for good.

We have a decade to prevent catastrophic climate change so our journey to net zero is our most critical commitment.

We are also committed to investing in new infrastructure to benefit society and running our business responsibly for our people and our customers.

Our history

Today we help over 10 million people with savings, retirement and life insurance.
