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.  Legal & General Group has put over £26bn into direct regeneration investments in 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 offer mixed capital sources from lending through to joint venture partnerships. We are  a long term investor with industry-leading, place-making and development capability in-house. What’s more, our scale and expertise allow us to successfully deliver significant urban regeneration projects across the UK, delivering large and complex projects that are beyond the reach and capability of others.
