Legal & General is providing stakeholder pensions to the staff of Newcastle United Football Club.
The joint venture sees Legal & General market and provide stakeholder pensions to Newcastle United's 1100 strong staff and extends to its regional business partners in the North East of England.
Carol Beverley, Director of Commercial Affairs at Newcastle United Football Club said: "We have a fantastic army of loyal staff and valued business partners and this is one way that we feel we can reward the support they have shown, and continue to show, this progressive football club. Legal & General recognise our desire to provide the very best value financial services products for employees and partners in the North East."
Kate Avery, Legal & General's Retail Customer Director said: "We have put together a stakeholder pension deal that we believe builds on our reputation for low cost, high value products Newcastle United is an instantly recognisable brand and provides Legal & General with a platform for the provision of stakeholder pensions to small to medium sized enterprises in the North East of England. This deal will enable Newcastle staff and business partners alike to share in the benefits of what I am convinced will be a truly winning partnership"
Where this leaves Legal & General's esteem in the eyes of Sunderland Football club remains to be seen though.
