From building homes to transforming UK towns and cities, our inclusive capitalism approach is already at work.

Financial returns matter to our partners, but they also want positive solutions that deliver real-life economic and social impact over the long term. In recent years, Legal & General Group has directly invested over £26bn into creating great places across the UK in recent years, and have proven to be a partner of choice for local authorities up and down the country.

Our investments are about more than just bricks and mortar. They’re also about investing for the long term, to create future-proof, sustainable, vibrant communities that enhance the quality of life of the people who live and work there.

Drawing on our highly flexible approach, we support and create places through lending, equity funding for new buildings, and joint venture partnerships. We are  a long term investor with industry-leading place-making and development capability in-house. What’s more, our scale, expertise, and ability to work in partnership enable us to successfully deliver impactful and place-shaping urban regeneration projects across the UK; often large and complex projects that are beyond the reach and capability of others.
