Scottish Widows

Taking on your future together

Helping people plan their financial futures for over 200 years.

Scottish Widows was set up in 1815 to take care of women and children who lost their fathers, brothers and husbands in the Napoleonic Wars, taking its name after the people it was founded to look after. Now more than 200 years on, they look after almost 6 million customers across the UK. Today Scottish Widows’ commitment is still the same - to help people plan for their financial futures.

Scottish Widows’ product range includes life cover, critical illness, income protection, workplace and individual pensions, annuities as well as savings and investment products. Customers can access Scottish Widows’ products and services through Independent Financial Advisers, directly, and through all Lloyds Bank, Bank of Scotland and Halifax branches.

The Scottish Widow icon was introduced over 30 years ago making the brand instantly recognisable. Past Widows included Deborah Moore, Amanda Lamb and Hayley Hunt who have all played the part of the iconic and enigmatic Widow.

The brand’s advertising now features its fourth Scottish Widow, Amber Martinez who is contemporary and confident, watching over and providing support to customers at key points during their lives.
