Helping people live better in their later years.

Investing for good

Encouraging the companies we invest in to behave responsibly.

Building infrastructure

Developing essential infrastructure and injecting capital into towns and cities.

Future-proofing society

Investing billions of pounds to help to build a better society for all.

Harnessing technology

Driving inclusivity through digital transformation.

Climate

Addressing the climate crisis is embedded in our business operations and in how we invest our assets. We use our scale to influence and support the transition to a low-carbon economy.

Technological innovation

Technological innovation is one of our six growth drivers. From building the data centres that keep businesses connected to supporting our customers, we are investing in technology to build a better future for everyone.
