Caledonian Life – Once Upon a Time – Now Royal London

Caledonian Life is now Royal London!

We usually don’t reference too many life insurance companies on here because we don’t want to seem biased in any way or form. We’re more of an honest resource for people needing an explanation of the different types of insurance out there.

Our Facebook page which only has a few likes unfortunately, however, we have received 4 questions referencing either Caledonian Life and RoyalLondon. Well… they are both the same company.

Caledonian Life was bought by the Royal London group after merging Royal Liver with Royal London in July 2011. This happened a while ago yet people are still continuing to speak about Caledonian.

The reason being Caledonian life didn’t actually become Royal London until 2014. They were and still are a very good company and that’s probably why so many people are asking about the company.

The parent company the Royal London Group have been in business of over 180 years years and are selling financial products in both the UK and Ireland. They are well renouned for both Life Insurance and Mortgage protection. One of the features of their policies that sets them apart from others is the “Helping Hand” add on:
