Wesleyan celebrates its 175th Anniversary

Birmingham-based financial mutual Wesleyan is celebrating 175 years of success this week -- just yards from where it was first founded back on 23 April 1841.

The specialist financial services provider was established on Cherry Street in the city just four years into Queen Victoria's reign and still has its Head Office at nearby Colmore Circus.

Chief Executive Craig Errington said: "There is a real sense of pride that while the world has changed a lot over the past 175 years, Wesleyan is still here and growing as one of the longest established companies in the city.

"The secret to our longevity has been our ability to evolve and adapt to the changing world around us, while at the same time sticking to what we know and believe in.

"From our first days providing sickness and funeral cover to workers at the height of the Industrial Revolution to where we are today serving specialist markets of doctors, dentists, lawyers and teachers, looking after our customers and their finances, and building long term relationships with them, has been at the core of what we do and will be so in the years ahead as we continue to grow Wesleyan 175th Anniversaryand innovate."

The Wesleyan Group employs more than 1,600 people across the UK, with 1,300 of them at its Birmingham Head Office.
