Acting responsibly.

Acting responsibly.

Our social purpose is to provide our customers with financial solutions that help them deal with the most exciting, difficult or critical moments in their lives. Our commitment to improving people’s lives extends to how we relate to society in areas such as paying tax or ensuring that our investments are in companies that act responsibly.


We operate mostly in developed countries that have strong legislation governing human rights. We are a signatory to the UN Global Compact for all of our worldwide operations and are a ‘Living Wage’ employer in the UK.

Go to our CSR report at for further detail on how we help broader society with housing, pensions, savings, health, total tax contribution and other issues.

In advance of 1 July 2014, we will publish country by country data as prescribed by the Capital Requirements Directive (CRD) IV, on our group website.
