The product range includes term assurance, mortgage protection, household insurance, private medical insurance, saving for retirement, annuities, unit trusts and ISAs. Its corporate business (pensions, group life assurance, and group income protection) complements the individual business, drawing on our key fund management, actuarial and administrative skills.
