LV= asset management launches four funds on Lighthousecapital programme

Press release: 14/08/2008

LV= Asset Management (LVAM), the fund management arm of mutual insurance and investment group LV=, has today announced the launch of four new OEIC sub-funds, which are being distributed through LighthouseCapital.

The funds will be managed by LVAM's Multi Manager & Fund Selection Team, headed by Tom Caddick. Lighthouse Group, one of the UK's largest independent financial advice and wealth management groups, will offer the funds to investors who are deemed to have mid-range risk profiles (specifically between 4 and 7) by Dynamic Planner, the psychometric risk profiling tool used by Lighthouse Group advisers as part of the LighthouseCapital initiative.

The TER* of the four funds at launch will be circa 1.8%.

Tom Caddick, Head of Multi Manager & Fund Selection comments:

"This is a very positive step forward for our broader retail asset management plans. We're pleased to be launching these funds with Lighthouse today and look forward to working closely with Lighthouse Group in the future".

Allan Rosengren, Joint Chief Executive of Lighthouse Group, said:

"These four funds will prove to be excellent additions to our advisers' product offering. We place a great deal of value on our independence and ability to offer clients choice so we look forward to working with LV= in their continued development of this area of their business."

*Total Expense Ratio (TER) - A measure designed to calculate the total running costs of a particular fund. Generally fund literature will detail an annual management charge (AMC), but this often does not include all of the administrative and other hidden costs. The TER includes both the AMC and any other costs associated with the fund.
