Unrivalled location

Our customers take great reassurance from our Isle of Man location – a well-established global financial centre with an outstanding reputation for investor protection and a host of international accolades.

As well as being awarded “white list” status, the OECD recently gave the Isle of Man the highest compliance rating for its international exchange of tax information, a level only achieved by 38 jurisdictions globally.

The Isle of Man has also been awarded an Aa3 sovereign rating by Moody’s, and won the prestigious International Finance Centre award at the 2021 International Adviser Product and Service Awards for the third time in four years.

Employing 9,000 people in the financial services industry, the island is also recognised by the IMF as a well-regulated, offshore finance centre of excellence.

A strong heritage

FPI has over 40 years of experience in the international life assurance market. You’re in safe, experienced hands.

We were established on the Isle of Man in 1978, when the Isle of Man welcomed its first offshore life assurance companies. One of these was Lloyd’s Life (Isle of Man), which later became Royal Life International, which became Royal and Sun Alliance International Financial Services, and then in 2002 became Friends Provident International.

In July 2020, IFGL acquired FPI from Aviva. IFGL provides investment, savings and protection solutions to international investors around the world, with 216,000 customers, USD25 billion assets under administration and employs 570 staff as at 31 December 2023.
