About Us

The feeling’s mutual

We're a mutual Society and have no shareholders to pay which means we are managed and run solely for the benefit of our members. Founded in 1902 to provide sickness benefits for Commercial Travellers, British Friendly has over a century of experience and expertise in serving its members.

We offer a range of products and services from our traditional investment linked policies, Holloway and Century, to Protect and Breathing Space, our pure Income Protection policies, which are sold by Financial Advisers throughout the UK. We have also provided and managed the staff benefit fund for British Airways since 2002. We were recently awarded with 5 stars by Defaqto, an independent financial researcher in the UK.

As a mutual provider we are more flexible in our approach to claims and underwriting which is why we pay so many claims - 96% over the last 14 years and 94% paid in 2019.

We believe it should feel good knowing you're covered by a reliable provider you can trust.
