Who we are

Legal & General Capital is Legal & General Group’s alternative asset platform, creating assets for Legal & General Retirement and third-party clients in order to achieve improved risk-adjusted returns for Legal & General Group shareholders.

We have built market-leading capabilities in a range of alternative assets, delivering depth of resource, track record and intellectual property. We seek opportunities to invest in sectors where there is a lack of investment and enduring demand to support society’s needs, namely residential property, specialist commercial property, clean energy and SME Finance.

We make a positive difference by addressing the chronic under-supply of housing, backing new investment in infrastructure and clean energy, and investing in start-up businesses to drive innovation and growth across the UK. Investing from the Group’s balance sheet gives us the flexibility to look beyond the size, volume and tenure requirements that limit other many institutional funds.

What we do

Investing society’s capital for society’s benefit, Legal & General Capital is creating jobs, transforming communities, improving our social and physical environment, and changing lives – creating a better, brighter future for society, while protecting and growing society’s hard-earned retirement savings.

We can bring together a variety of long-term capital sources, deep sector knowledge and skill sets, cross-divisional synergies and an unrivalled network of partners.

Some of our activities include:
  • Creating assets to help us transition to a low carbon economy, investing across the energy spectrum into heat, transport and power, to make a real impact on our planet
  • Investing in housing for all ages, social groups and tenures, including affordable housing, build-to-rent and build-to-sell, and ranging from first homes to later living communities. Innovating to meet the chronic undersupply of housing, we have trail blazed in new markets, such as modular housing, and have committed that our entire housing portfolio will be operationally carbon neutral by 2030
  • Investing in the thriving culture of entrepreneurship and creating new private sector companies by investing in university spin outs and start-up businesses across the UK and Europe; helping small businesses grow into successful large companies
  • Using our capital to help encourage the next generation scientific and health innovations, more crucial in light of Covid-19, by investing and partnering with businesses, universities, SMEs and providing Venture Capital (VC) growth funding
  • Investing billions into levelling-up regional economies, regenerating towns and cities through vibrant mixed-use projects that support existing businesses, offer new employment opportunities and provide housing for all ages and social groups
