Unit Fund Prices
This facility is supplied as a means to help you keep track of the value of your unit linked funds. The initial premium and any subsequent premiums buy units in your chosen funds. Each month some of the units are deducted to cover the cost of the company continuing to look after your policy, so you should contact us to get an update of the number of units in your policy at regular intervals.
To calculate the value of your policy at any time, you should multiply the number of units in each fund that your policy is invested in by the relevant Bid Price.
