About M&G plc

We’re a leading savings and investments business, formed in 2017, through the merger of Prudential plc’s UK and Europe savings and insurance operation and M&G, an asset management company. M&G plc has more than 5.5 million individual customers and clients in 28 countries. In total, we have £341 billion assets under management (as of 30 June 2019).

Our growth strategy for the savings and asset management business is to take our range of investment solutions and scale them in our chosen markets. International growth will be focused and accompanied by our customary discipline on capital management.

Prudential UK is one of the UK’s leading Life and Pension companies. In the UK, Prudential manages £51 billion of savings on behalf of individual customers.

M&G Investments has been helping its customers to prosper for nearly nine decades for putting investments to work. Its investment solutions span equities, fixed income, multi asset, cash, private debt, infrastructure and real estate.

These two companies came together in 2017 to form a new leader in savings and investments: M&G plc. The name has changed but our purpose has not: to help millions of people to manage and grow their savings so that they can live the life they want. Our aim is to grow our customers’ wealth and improve their world by investing with care.

Why we’re different at M&G plc

The difference at M&G plc and what makes us exceptional is summed up by one word: care. Customers want us to care about their finances and to care about some of the same things they do: retirement without financial worry and a high standard of living. They also increasingly care how and where their long-term savings are invested. What is the point of financial security if the planet is dying? As an institutional investor of scale we are in a position to be a force for good. Today our customers expect us to reflect their views on the environment and social values, tomorrow they will demand it.

In addition, we are committed to creating an environment where you can be exceptional at all you do. To help us deliver this we promise to:

  • Challenge Your Limits - A stimulating working environment providing opportunities for you to be involved in meaningful and challenging work
  • Support Your Aspirations - A commitment to learning and development that helps you achieve and build your experience with people who want you to succeed
  • Value Your Input - Leaders and managers who will involve you in key decisions, listen to your thoughts and recognise the important contribution you make
  • Balance Your Life - A work life partnership that focuses on making this an inclusive, diverse and friendly place to work and offers the flexibility and support that enables everyone to be at their best

What we do, and who are our customers?

We have been serving individual savers since 1848 and continue to help millions of people to manage and grow their savings. We also team up with financial partners around the world to help their clients manage and build their investments. And we serve nearly 900 institutional clients such as pension funds and insurance companies.

Customers and clients come to M&G plc for two reasons- the quality of our savings and investment solutions and the care with which we look after their money. We have four types of customers:

  • Retails savers
  • Wholesale clients
  • Institutional clients
  • Heritage customers

We will be recruiting for graduate and internship schemes in September 2020. Our roles will be on our website when we are open for applications

  • Technology Summer Intern

    As a technology intern, I was involved in a wide range of projects including projects that extended outside my team. I was involved in challenging and diverse work, in areas such as software engineering, testing, performance analysis and data science. These projects pushed me outside my comfort zone and allowed me to learn a lot in a short span of time (~5 weeks)....
