Important information

There are some important things you need to know about our LV= TIP:

  • This is a with-profits plan so members will be eligible to participate in our distributions to with-profits policy holders and they will be eligible to receive a mutual bonus.

  • Smoothing can be suspended at our discretion. This may be in exceptional conditions or if the underlying price was 80% or less of the averaged price. If smoothing was suspended the funds may need to be valued using the underlying price. We also have discretion to use a daily gradual averaged price with an appropriate smoothing period of up to 26 weeks. Full details are contained in the document Your guide to how we manage our unitised with-profits Smoothed Managed Funds business.
