Share price

If you want to know the Legal & General share price – often abbreviated to lgen share – the chart on this page shows you the performance of our Legal & General Group plc share price on the London Stock Exchange (lon lgen). It’s designed to provide investors with the transparency they need so they can invest with confidence.

How it works

When you first arrive on the page it will show you the performance of our lgen lse shares over the past 12 months. The stock price is on the Y axis. You can interrogate a particular day by hovering the cursor over one of the blue bars at the bottom.

You can select another time period if you’d like to see the lgen share price over, say, a day, month, year, five years or more. At the top of the page, we have also provided key figures about current trading, which will help you understand Legal & General’s performance. These include the price of our shares when the market opened today, the last price that our shares sold at, and the difference between the two; for example, whether the value has risen or fallen.

Other important figures above the chart include the bid price, which is the highest price that traders are currently willing to pay for our shares (lon lgen) and the ask price, which is the lowest amount that owners are willing to sell our lgen lse shares for. Volume refers to the total number of shares traded during the day, and you can also see the highest and lowest values at which shares have been traded.

Our vision

Of course, our share price is not the only measure of our success. The strength of Legal & General is reflected in many ways, and we believe financial success and inclusive values are not mutually exclusive – they are both part of who we are, and why we’re here.

Legal & General is one of Europe’s largest insurance and asset management groups with more than £1 trillion in assets. Our vision is to improve the lives of our customers, build a better society for the long term and create value for our shareholders. We do this through the activities of our pensions, investment management, capital investment and insurance businesses.
