Royal London acquires Responsible Life and Responsible Lending
Pensions, life and investment mutual Royal London has acquired later life lender Responsible Lending and later life adviser Responsible Life.

The firms are part of the Responsible Group and the acquisition is subject to regulatory approval. 

It will build on Royal London’s existing 40 per cent stake in the businesses. The transaction will allow Royal London to support Responsible Group deliver later life solutions and expand in the market. 

Barry O’Dwyer, group chief executive of Royal London, said: “This transaction strengthens our support for advisers and customers as they look for solutions in funding later life needs. We believe this market has a lot of potential as it offers customers additional choices at retirement, especially those who have property wealth but insufficient pension savings to support their desired standard of living.  

“Later life lending is complex by nature and requires specialist advice. Royal London is keen to play a role in ensuring high quality advice is an accessible option for those who would benefit from accessing the equity in their home.”  

Carlton Hood, chief executive for the Responsible Group companies, added: “I am delighted that the Responsible companies are becoming part of the Royal London Group and will benefit from the stability of being part of the UK’s largest life, pensions and investment mutual.  

“We will work with colleagues at Royal London to bring the consideration of pension wealth and property wealth together for advisers and clients, and to ensure the advisers we support, and the customers they serve, are able to access the best range of later life lending solutions for their retirement needs.”
