Back office guide

Users of most back office systems can get instant valuations for our pensions and bonds.

These back office systems have been designed to ease the pressures of administration and compliance, allowing you to see a client's entire financial portfolio and freeing up more of your time to give clients the advice they are looking for.

Plus they link directly in to our system, so for each policy you can view:

  • the current policy value
  • the value of the underlying funds
  • the number of units held in each fund.

If you need help getting started or once you're up and running, our web support team are only an email or phone call away if you have any problems or questions.

Call them on 0845 60 50 401 or email them at websupport@royallondon.com
