UNITED FRIENDLY INSURANCE
United Friendly Life Assurance was founded in 1908. United Friendly Insurance was once a major force in the protection market place with their own salesforce. Due to economic circumstances they slowly disappeared as a brand as the mortgage market slowly moved from endowment to repayment mortgages.
In 1989 the American Express financial planning organisation bought a small UK insurance company, Devonshire Life which then set up Acuma. In 1993 Acuma was sold to the United Friendly group. Acuma Life Insurance changed its name to United Friendly Life Assurance in 1994.
In 1996 United Friendly & Refuge Assurance merged to create the United Assurance Group. Friends Provident briefly marketed their client data base but in the year 2000 Royal London Insurance took over this old company.
The Royal London Group head office is currently based in Wilmslow, Cheshire. Royal London Plus was set up as the part of the Royal London Group to specifically look after old policies taken out via United Friendly, Royal London, Refuge Assurance & Royal Liver. Royal London's new business brands are Bright Grey & Scottish Provident
You can no longer buy United Friendly Life Insurance products but you maybe be able to make certain amendments to them via Royal London.
