Ardan International is an independent wealth platform that allows for a wide range of investments through a single point of access. 

Ardan was the first independent wealth platform designed exclusively for international advisers and their clients. Authorised and regulated in the Isle of Man, it provides access to more than 70,000 funds and securities through multiple third party life and pension wrappers. 

Ardan was created in 2013, when it was named Acordias. In 2014, the business was acquired by UK wealth manager and stockbroker Rowan Dartington and it was rebranded as “Ardan”, which means “platform” in Manx. 

In December 2016 Ardan was acquired by IFGL. Visit the Ardan International website

RL360 Insurance Company Limited ("RL360") is one of the fastest growing international life companies, nearly trebling its market share over the last 5 years. From our Isle of Man headquarters, we provide savings, investment and protection products to over 50,000 international investors based around the world. 

With our size and growth comes security, as recognised by the B+ Financial Strength rating we were awarded by independent actuaries AKG - the joint highest of any company operating in the international market. 

RL360 is a winning combination of a well established and financially strong company that has a unique structure that encourages constant dynamism, innovation and commitment to the international market. We are owned by our senior managers (with significant private equity backing from partners who share our vision). Our management team is therefore personally and financially committed to the success of the Company. It is this commitment that sets RL360 apart. 

Our heritage stretches back to 1991. RL360 was created at the start of 2009 following the merger of Scottish Provident International (formed in 1991) and Scottish Life International (established in 1996). 

We operate in the Far East, Africa, the Middle East, Emerging Europe, Latin America and the UK, with offices in the Isle of Man, Hong Kong, Lebanon, Malaysia, Dubai, South Africa and Uruguay and have policyholders residing in 170 countries at all points of the compass.
