Legal & General has been working with a number of media and ad agencies, including Bray Leino.

Dominic Collins, the group chief marketing officer at Legal & General, said: "Connecting with our customers has never been more critical.

"I am excited about working with WPP and Periscopix to bring our stories to life in a relevant and engaging way."
