Our mission

Our expertise lies in providing insurance and financial services, and at Ecclesiastical we have vast experience and knowledge, and highly qualified people to do that well. But we also understand that combining our expertise with the highest standards of service, integrity and honesty is just as important.

As a commercial business with a charitable purpose, we are focused on delivering strong and sustainable returns. To do good, we know we must be good at what we do.

Today, it’s common for the things we value at Ecclesiastical to be called being socially responsible or being ethical. It doesn’t really matter what you call them, it’s what you believe in and what you do about it that counts.

Generating profits for good

All businesses need to make a profit and we’re no different. Without profit, we wouldn’t have the strength and security to provide the products, service and specialist knowledge that are so important to our customers. Where we’re different is that we’re owned by a charity. It’s called Allchurches Trust Limited (ATL), and it invests a significant proportion of our profits independently into the heart of communities, helping to change lives for the better.  We also have our own programme of charitable giving. 

In March 2016 we announced that we had achieved our goal of giving £50m to charitable causes over three years, nine months ahead of schedule.
