Company Description

Securing pensions over the long term can be a challenge for many businesses.

Our ambition at Legal & General Retirement Institutional (LGRI) is to help companies and pension scheme trustees honour their defined benefit pension promises to their employees.

We’re helping companies settle their pension liabilities so they can focus on growing their businesses, as well as helping to support their members’ financial security in retirement. And we’re investing for the long term to back our pension promises.

In the last 30 years we’ve written more UK business than any other insurer, and we currently look after more than half a million pension policyholders. We're the UK’s longest-serving active bulk annuity provider, and a market-leading, multi-award winning business.

You will also maintain an excellent knowledge of the Pension Risk Transfer proposition and processes of L&G along with any changes to pensions and de-risking legislation to further support the development of our Pension Risk Transfer Implementation capabilities across our UK business structures and future active territories.
