About us

Friends Provident International provides competitive life assurance, pensions and investment products for Asia, the Middle East, Europe, the UK and other selected markets, and is part of the Friends Life groupOpens a new window. Friends Life group is the name used to describe Friends Life Group plc and all subsidiaries of that company. Also in this group is Friends Life, which was launched in March 2011.

Friends Provident International benefits from a strong relationship with the Friends Life business, sharing a heritage that dates back over 200 years, and a reputation of trust, commitment and integrity in providing financial solutions to customers throughout their lives.

Over 30 years of international experience have enabled us to establish strong relationships with financial advisers in many parts of the world. To support these relationships, we have offices in Hong Kong, Dubai and Singapore.

Hong Kong

Our Hong Kong office is the sales and servicing hub for Friends Provident International's operations in the North Asia region. Our local presence and insight give us the chance to get closer to our clients, fully understand their needs and, as a result, deliver truly bespoke solutions.


We aim to establish Friends Provident International as a leading regional life insurance provider in the Middle East, with multiple distribution channels offering quality financial services products to both locals and expatriates.

With the Friends Life group already held in high regard in the region, we have a strong foundation for growing the business. Our local office has made great progress, using local insight to gain an insider's knowledge of the market. We look forward to building on this to offer financial solutions to the local market and to expatriates of all nationalities.


A well-respected and regulated centre for private banking and wealth management, and a dynamic territory for rapid growth, South East Asia is a natural choice for Friends Provident International. A local presence will help us to react quickly and flexibly to turn opportunities into business.

Our business is written from jurisdictions that are best suited to meeting clients' needs, the Isle of Man and Salisbury.

Isle of Man

The Isle of Man combines world-class standards of regulation, transparency and telecoms infrastructure with relatively low rates of direct taxation. Established more than 30 years ago, our operation on the island has an enviable reputation for stability and protection. The island has the Sovereign Credit Rating 'AA+' from Standard and Poor's* and 'Aaa' from Moody's*. By taking advantage of this international financial centre, we are able to offer tax-efficient investment solutions.

* Standard and Poor's and Moody's are independent rating agencies, who assess the strength of financial centres.


Salisbury is one of our largest sites in the UK and an ideal base from which to sell our overseas life assurance business (OLAB). We are working in partnership with several prestigious organisations, such as financial partners business (fpb AG) in Germany. With extensive experience, innovative product development and the very latest technology, we are proud to be able to provide you with the most sophisticated financial solutions.
