LV= Smoothed Pension:


Supporting safer pension investments

Our new LV= Smoothed Managed Funds Pension Series 1 (Smoothed Pension) offers three multi-asset funds designed for steady growth with a smoother investment journey, reducing the stress and anxiety that can come with stock market investing. Specially designed to suit risk-sensitive clients, our smoothed pension funds offer a safer investment solution – during the accumulation process and while taking drawdown income.

Clients can access the funds through our industry recognised LV= Pension (Flexible Transitions Account).
  • Take away the worry of day-to-day investing with our built-in smoothing mechanism. We average fund prices over the previous 26 weeks to reduce the impact of market volatility on your client's investments. It’s simple, transparent and easy to explain to your clients – read more about smoothing.

  • Plus, our enhanced smoothing process means unit prices are averaged from day 2.
  • Steady medium to long term growth with no unexpected price adjustments to date.
  • Check your client's investment value quickly and easily with our online valuation tool.
  • Smoothed Managed Cautious fund allows clients to buy an optional 10-year capital guarantee for added reassurance. Your clients can add to their investments at outset, or when a previous guarantee expires.
  • Funds risk-rated 3, 4, and 5 by Distribution Technology and Defaqto to help you assess client suitability. 
  • Benefit from a simple online quote and apply process with no signatures or  automated ID checks. 
  • 100.1% of initial investment available to beneficiaries if your client dies.

Important information

There are some important things you need to know about our Smoothed Pension.
  • This is a non-profit plan so clients will not be eligible to participate in any of our distributions to with-profits policyholders. For example, they will not be eligible to receive a mutual bonus.
  • Your client’s investments may go down as well as up, and they could get back less than invested.
  • In exceptional market conditions (when the underlying price is 80% or less of the averaged or ‘smoothed’ price), a fund will be valued on the underlying price or gradual averaging price. We reserve the right to move to suspend smoothing at other times.
