Friends Provident Institution

Founded in 1832 in Bradford by Joseph Rowntree and Samuel Tuke as the Friends Provident Institution, a friendly society for members of the Religious Society of Friends, it continues to this day with the name Friends Life. In 1845 it became a mutual life assurance company. Today there is no formal link between Friends Life and the Religious Society of Friends.
