A start-up backed by a household name
Legal & General are one of the UK's leading financial services groups.
With over £1 trillion in total assets under management, the group is the UK’s largest investment manager for corporate pension schemes, and a market leader in pensions de-risking, life insurance and workplace pensions.
Legal & General have also directly invested over £19 billion in projects including homebuilding, urban regeneration, clean energy and small business finance.
And, as a group, we’ve been involved in housing for a long time: developing homes, financing the affordable housing sector, and now building modular homes.
Modular housing has the potential to help solve the housing crisis. But starting a modular homes business from scratch takes significant capital, and it won’t bring immediate returns. It takes patient investment.
Legal & General’s backing has given us the freedom to approach modular building in a brand-new way.
The freedom to get the right processes, quality and capacity in place. To partner to create sustainable communities. And to realise the long-term potential of modular building for individuals, society, the economy and shareholders alike.
Rosie is our overall leader and champion of the modern design, manufacturing and construction approach we’re applying to modular home building.
She used to be at aerospace company Rolls-Royce, so she brings invaluable experience and insight into how to develop long and lasting partnerships with major customers, as well as how to develop new products and manage a complex design-led manufacturing business.
