About Us

While expats today have the freedom to live and work in markets all around the world, their saving and investment options are often limited.

Providence develops retirement and saving solutions that enable professional expats to plan for the future, so they can continue enjoying the freedom and independence they cherish in the years to come.

As one of the first new offshore life assurance companies in the last 100 years, we have a nimble, agile approach, inspired by the intrepid attitude of professional expats, the modern-day explorers.

We leverage the power of technology to provide a personalised online portal, so expats can access real-time information about their account wherever they are, whatever the time. And we partner with reputable trust and pension companies to develop a range of market-leading products designed exclusively around the needs of expats. These are then recommended by leading financial Advisers all around the world.
