Nationwide Building Society is planning to offer an ethical trust and a range of new protection and investment products from Legal & General to complement its existing offers.

The range of products from Legal & General will include: ethical trust; family life insurance plan; capital guaranteed multi-index equity bond; critical illness cover and life cover.

Robin Bailey, director for insurance and investments at Nationwide, said: Our new link with Legal & General enables us to respond to customers’ requests for an ethical fund and to launch innovative new policies like the family life insurance plan to protect young families. In addition to new policies to protect customers and their families, Nationwide will continue to make investments accessible and simple with a GBP20 minimum investment, no initial charges, single unit pricing and a range of funds designed for people with differing attitudes to risk.
