The Royal National Pension Fund for Nurses (RNPFN) was established by Sir Henry Burdett in 1887 to help nurses make provision for their retirement or ill-health. It provided savings, pension and investment products exclusively for healthcare workers and their partners. LV= acquired the RNPFN business on 31 December 2001, and the interests of RNPFN policyholders are looked after by a Supervisory Board that was set up at that time.

The administration of all RNPFN policies is carried out at the LV= head office in Bournemouth.

For more information on the transfer to Liverpool Victoria Life Company Limited in 2001 see the scheme of transfer document. On 31 December 2008 RNPFN was transferred from Liverpool Victoria Life Company Limited to Liverpool Victoria Friendly Society Limited.
