Full recording of the 2021 AGM

You've got questions; we've got answers

  1. What makes someone a member of LV=?
    Anyone can become a member of LV= by owning a member-qualifying product with us. This includes all of our current and historic products, apart from our equity release products (for example Lifetime mortgage and Flexible Lifetime mortgage). 
    Customers who have general insurance products (for example car and home insurance) are also not members - these products are sold by LV= General Insurance Group, a subsidiary of Allianz.
  2. So if I'm a member, what does that mean? 
    You’re entitled to have a say in the way our business is run, by voting at our Annual General Meeting (AGM), and you have access to a range of member benefits such as; 
    member discounts on some general insurance products like car and home insurance provided by LV= General Insurance, a subsidiary of Allianz
    use of a Member Care Line for help and advice 
    our Member Support if you’re in financial hardship.
  3. What's an Annual General Meeting (AGM)? 
    It's a yearly event that allows our members to give an opinion on the way we are run and is normally abbreviated to AGM. AGM's are usually held by official bodies, clubs and financial institutions, not only as a legal requirement, but because it's written into their constitution or is the right thing to do.
  4. Why do you have an AGM? 
    We have an AGM so our members can have a say on key matters affecting the business. We have a legal obligation to let members know, in advance, when the Meeting is being held and give them the chance to cast their votes.
  5. What makes a member eligible to vote? 
    Someone must be over 18 and have held a member-qualifying product for a full 12 months as at the date of an AGM. 
  6. What's a proxy?
    When members can’t attend a Meeting in person, they have the option to cast their votes beforehand, or at the Meeting via a proxy. A proxy is someone who’ll be at the Meeting and will cast the members’ votes on their behalf. The majority of members nominate the Chair of the Meeting to express their votes however they can also nominate a different proxy.
