Legal & General
Legal & General is a multi-national insurance, pensions and investment company, which is listed on the London Stock Exchange, where it is part of the FTSE 100 Index. Its origins date back to the first half of the 19th century.
Legal & General offers a large range of insurance and investment products. It also underwrites policies for a number of brokers. So don’t be surprised if you come across the name on your policy document even though you didn’t buy directly from Legal & General.
Although it has a decent record on complaints, its customer happiness and trust scores are below average. This leaves it in the bottom half of the tables in all car and home insurance.
Its car insurance in particular doesn’t do very well in our ratings, let down by its very poor trust score.
However, for life insurance, for which we don't use customer happiness and trust, a solid record across the board ensures Legal & General achieve a bronze Fairer Finance ribbon.
