A policy value

Did you know…..

  • Your Annual Statement will detail the number of units you have as at *1 April 2020. You are able to calculate the current value of these units by simply multiplying the number of units by the daily bid price of the fund(s) you are invested in. You can find the current bid prices here here.
  • It is important to note that unit prices can go down as well as up

*If you have paid money into your policy, taken money out of your policy, or are still transitioning into different unit-linked funds following the transfer from Equitable Life, the number of units will be different to those shown on the statement.
