Public affairs


In a dynamic and turbulent economic and political environment, it is important that the financial services market continues to allow Life and Pensions companies to deliver services and products that keep customers’ needs in the forefront. The Public Affairs team at Scottish Widows works hard to influence and shape legislation in a way that benefits our business, shareholders and customers.

With a forward-thinking strategy and in partnership with a range of policy influencers, think tanks and charities, the Public Affairs team examines legislative and regulatory developments to protect both the industry and its consumers.
