Policies that are with-profits give the insured the added benefit of a bonus that is a share of the profits from the funds that the premiums have been invested in.
How and where the premiums are to be invested is worth establishing if you are going to invest in a with-profits product, such as single premium insurance bonds for example. But as with all long-term investments in the stock market or in interest bearing instruments, it is important to stay with them for the long term. That way they have the time to build and ‘smooth’ the short term ups and downs in rates of return. The with-profits endowment policy is also a means of regular long-term saving and has the potential for a good return, but there is no guarantee of the final (maturity) value of the policy.
With-profit bonds are usually another way of investing in with-profits funds by paying a single insurance premium.
A MVA is a way for the insurer to make sure that the amount of money paid out to an investor is a fair reflection of that investor’s share of the with-profits fund, and any growth which has been achieved on the fund. The MVA is used to protect the remaining insurance premium.
The adjustment is made via a penalty that may be applied if a customer takes units out of a with-profit fund other on a pre-agreed date, to take account of investment market conditions at the time.
