    You’re right – there has been a lot of change. This partly reflects changing regulatory environment, but also the growth of our business: as we’ve become more successful, we’ve had to change some things to make sure that we can give our clients the service they deserve. But there ...

    We agree that culture and management are important. We think we have a positive and supportive working culture and we invest a lot of resources looking at embedding the values and behaviours that have built RLAM and that people tell us they like. Similarly, we think that management ...

    March 4, 2019CEO

    Thank you for your comment. We agree with you – it is important to listen to our people. Regular catch-ups with your line manager are perhaps the most important of these, but we also want something broader and more measurable. This is why we have two employee engagement surveys every ...

    I have been working at Royal London Asset Management. full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great flat structure, which means you can talk to people easily and get things done. Lots of effort has been spent on bringing the Culture to life and it really shows, genuinely a nice place to work. I have worked here over 3 years and the time has flown - always a positive place to work and your ideas are listened to and you can get things done.

    Cons

    Don't let flexible working and clear desk policies,get confused or clash with the excellent work on culture

    Advice to Management

    Lets not grow people wise to much more, but lets invest in technology to automate some activities

      Positive Outlook

      I have been working at Royal London Asset Management. full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      Close-knit structure. Great exposure to front-office and fund managers. Colleagues are patient and willing to help.

      Cons

      Perhaps more formalised training for entry level roles, although understandably RLAM is a medium sized firm so not always possible.

      Advice to Management

      Keep the firm close-knit and a great place to work and learn!

      I have been working at Royal London Asset Management. full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      RLAM does not, to some extent, feel like an asset manager. While it is a hugely successful and growing business the company still gets the work-life balance and culture right. Staff are motivated , engaged and proud to work for the company. Senior Management are present and the structure feels flatter than at other companies.

      Cons

      While the Royal London Group is a large company, RLAM is only ~200 employees and this may not be your thing if you aspire to work for a large business. This is not a con for me but may be for some.

      Advice to Management

      A graduate programme of some sort would be of a benefit to the company so it may bring fresh, new talent to a growing business.

      I have been working at Royal London Asset Management.

      Pros

      Company is a mutual - owned by its customers. Moving forward in a number of areas and expanding. Do genuinely listen to employees and act on feedback.

      Cons

      Nothing specific. Commute a bit of pain but that's not Royal London's fault.

      Advice to Management

      Carry on listening to staff and ensuring everyone can achieve an appropriate work/life balance

      I worked at Royal London Asset Management. for more than 19 years

      Pros

      I worked for a company that was taken over by Royal London. Later, I fell ill and went on long-term sick leave. There were several times where my employers could have gamed the situation to lower their financial exposure but to their credit they did not and treated me with fairness and compassion.

      Cons

      It's very bureaucratic and top-heavy but they recognise this and are working to streamline decision-making. If my experience is anything to go buy, they aim to pay below median, justifying it with reference to their mutual status.

      Advice to Management

      Don't lose the humanity in your dealings with employees!

      Thank you very much for taking the time to write a review this is very much appreciated. We are pleased that you felt well supported during your long term sick and hope that you are on the road to recovery. On your comment about mutuality I disagree. As a leading asset manager we ...
