The International Longevity Centre – UK (ILC-UK) is delighted to announce that Legal & General has agreed to sponsor our website for three years from November 2016.

Kerrigan Procter, Managing Director, Legal & General Retirement said:

'We are delighted to sponsor the International Longevity Centre’s website and support their work as the leading think tank on longevity and demographic change.

One of our society’s greatest achievements is that people are living longer, but ageing populations also bring challenges - from providing pensions to health and social care to housing.

We all share a common interest in finding new solutions to the challenges and indeed the opportunities presented by an ageing population.

At Legal & General we are working with individuals and companies on managing the financial consequences of people living longer. We currently provide income and security to over one million people in retirement and are investing in projects, such as housing, to help build a positive future for everyone. This is a natural partnership for us and one that we are very proud to support'.

Baroness Sally Greengross, ILC-UK Chief Executive added:

“Legal & General are one of ILC-UK’s founding Partners and as such we have worked with them for many years. We are delighted that they have agreed to sponsor our website for three years. This important support will help us continue to deliver our independent analysis of demographic change”

Legal & General, established in 1836, is one of the UK’s leading financial services companies and is responsible for managing £842 billion of assets globally. Legal & General operates one of the largest annuity books in the UK and backs the pension promises it is responsible for keeping with an investment strategy guided by an ambition to play a socially and economically useful role in our wider society and economy.

The International Longevity Centre – UK (ILC-UK) is a futures organisation focussed on some of the biggest challenges facing Government and society in the context of demographic change.

We ask difficult questions and present new solutions to the challenges and opportunities of ageing. We undertake research and policy analysis and create a forum for debate and action.
