An Introduction to Hodge Lifetime

Doing the right thing is what we aim to do in all areas of our business – it guides our decisions.

Take Hodge Lifetime for example, a business dedicated to the retirement market since 1965. Since that time we’ve nurtured a great depth of experience and developed a very strong and solid reputation for looking after our customers while being at the forefront of innovation in our core retirement lending markets. This means that you can trust us to do right by you.

We do the right thing with regard to having a social responsibility too. The Hodge Foundation, a charity supporting the welfare, medical, academic and educational areas owns over 75% of our business. This drives us, knowing that by helping our customers to achieve their goals, we are also helping good causes that are important to us.
