About Retirement Advantage

Who we are

Retirement Advantage is a well-established company that can trace its roots back to 1852. We provide those who are in, at or approaching retirement with a range of simple, secure and flexible products to suit their needs.

Every year thousands of retirees rely on us for their income. We have over £2billion of funds under our management, and a heritage dating back over 160 years.

In January 2018 Retirement Advantage became part of the Canada Life Group (UK) Limited. Canada Life shares a similar heritage, and just as importantly, places the same emphasis on providing outstanding service to customers.

Canada Life has operated in the United Kingdom since 1903. Today the Group offers life insurance, critical illness cover, retirement planning, annuities, investments and inheritance tax planning, looking after the needs of thousands of individuals and companies. Canada Life is itself part of Great-West Lifeco, with over 30 million customers worldwide and £760 billion in assets under administration.

As part of Canada Life, Retirement Advantage has more capability than ever before to help customers feel better equipped to make the most of their retirement.

Canada Life is fully committed to the long-term future of The Retirement Account and our equity release products, and for this reason we are already hard at work on their future development.
