  4. Three multi-asset funds managed by expert global fund managers Columbia Threadneedle Investments (CTI).
  5. Funds risk-rated 3, 4, and 5 by Distribution Technology and Defaqto*.

Important Information

  • This is a non-profit plan so clients will not be eligible to participate in any of our distributions to with-profits policyholders. For example, they will not be eligible to receive a mutual bonus.
  • Clients’ investments may go down as well as up, and they could get back less than invested.

The LV= TIP offers easy online quotes with a straightforward application process.

Optional guarantee available for added reassurance

The Smoothed Managed TIP Cautious fund allows clients to buy an optional 10-year capital guarantee. Guarantees can be bought on initial and subsequent investments, or on the expiry of a previous guarantee.
