Legal & General seems to be on a bit of an outsourcing mission at the moment. Having just announced its decision to outsource its IT infrastructure to IBM it looks set to do more.
This time back office functions are being considered according to a contact of mine. These include things like application process handling, credit and risk checking and policy administration.
But maybe it is just rumour. I spoke to an L&G spokesman and he said as far as he knew this is not the case.
