Shared value

It's what make us positively different

This site is for UK investment professionals only. If you're not an investment professional, please find out more about us at

As the only provider to bring together wellness and savings, we help your clients live a longer, healthier, more financially secure life.

Experts in shared value

Our unique approach to investments is based on incentivising positive behavioural change. By changing behaviour, we deliver economic and health benefits that are good for your clients, good for you, good for us and good for society. This is what makes our proposition unique. We call this shared value. It’s already helped us reshape the UK life and health insurance markets.

A win, win, win situation

For your clients, this could add up to greater financial longevity and better long-term health to enjoy it.

For us, the longer they invest, the more we earn and the more we can share these additional earnings back with your clients.

You increase client loyalty, value and persistency. Plus, your clients are more likely to recommend you to their friends.

More generally, society benefits from a healthier, more financially secure population.

Making people healthier in the UK

Evidence our shared value model works in life and health insurance, we are now applying the same principles to the world of investment.

The value of investments - and the income from them - can go down as well as up, meaning your client may get back less than they invest. Terms and Conditions apply.
