With Profits:


With-profits funds

All our with-profits business is held within Liverpool Victoria Financial Services Limited (LVFS). When your client invests with us, it’s combined with other investor's money into our with-profits fund. First and foremost, we want to give your client a fair return on their investment. As we offer many different ways of investing, we have different groups of with-profits policyholders – with different plans started at different times, and with different terms.

We use smoothing on our funds to help deliver a calmer investment journey which may be well suited to your risk-sensitive clients that are uncomfortable with traditional ups and downs of the stock market (and other investments).

Many of our legacy investments and our LV= ISA, Smoothed Managed Funds Bond Series 1, Smoothed Managed Funds Pension Series 1 and Smoothed Managed Funds Trustee Investment Plan Series 1 (LV= TIP) invest in the with-profits fund. This includes the LV= Flexible Guarantee Fund (all series) and the Flexible Guarantee Bond (all series).
