Strong and Secure

Going strong for over 190 years

Royal London in Ireland has a history of protecting our policy holders and their families for over 190 years, and we’re committed to continuing to do so for a long time to come. 

Old padlock and keys

Over the last few years the turmoil experienced by financial institutions has highlighted the importance of placing your money and trust with a straightforward company you can depend upon. Thankfully, Royal London offers just that, as it’s owned by the UK’s largest mutual life, pensions and investment company.

Our parent company’s mutuality means we share a common sense of integrity and purpose. And with no external shareholders, we are focused solely on making decisions based on the benefits to our customers to give better value and higher levels of service.

This means that when your Financial Broker recommends Royal London to you for your protection needs, they’re recommending cover with a company that you can be sure is committed to looking after you.
