8 new fund links for LifePlan

The additions include low volatility equity funds, from sectors new to the range.

As part of our commitment to policyholders we carry out a regular fund review for the LifePlan fund menu to ensure funds remain appropriate to the range. Having recently completed our latest review, we are pleased to announce that 8 new funds have been added to the range (13 inclusive of currency variants).

A key consideration when we select funds for the menu is volatility. This is due to the importance of building up value within a LifePlan policy to maintain protection benefits, and so we steer away from funds with highly erratic price movements.

After research and careful consideration we are excited to be able to enhance the range with a number of low volatility equity funds, introducing new sectors to the range - Equity Europe excluding UK, Equity North America and Equity UK. We have also added a Healthcare fund and an Equity Income fund from Guinness Asset Management - a new fund manager to LifePlan.
