    Who We Are

    M&G plc is a leading savings and investments business which was formed in 2017 through the merger of Prudential plc’s UK and Europe savings and insurance operation and M&G Investments, its wholly-owned international investment manager.

    In March 2018, Prudential plc announced its intention to demerge the company with a premium listing on the London Stock Exchange. As an independent company, M&G plc has a single corporate identity and continues with two customer-facing brands; Prudential for savings and insurance customers in the UK and Europe and for asset management in South Africa and M&G Investments for asset management clients globally.

    The name has changed but our purpose has not: to help millions of people to manage and grow their savings so that they can live the life they want.

    Creating an inclusive culture at M&G Plc is critical to our success. We believe that this means promoting respect, developing talent, protecting our people and valuing our differences. We are proud to employ people from a wide range of backgrounds, experience and skillsets.
