2 Approaches to investment risk Friends Life calculates its risk ratings using historical performance data, based upon the methods set by European Union rules. We also carry out further research using information from the fund s investment manager(s). We review each fund s risk rating annually and these may change over time. The timing of your investment decisions is very important and you should consult a financial adviser. Past performance is not a guarantee of future performance. Our risk ratings go from 1 to 7, with 1 being the lowest and 7 the highest. As a point of reference, a fund with a risk rating of 4 (medium ) would typically experience the you would expect from a fund invested in a range of different (for example shares, and ) without any bias to a particular investment type. Remember that all investment carry some element of risk but this varies from fund to fund.

3 Fund risk warnings There are associated with investing in, or types of. In this document we show which risk warning or warnings apply to each fund. These are all explained below. Please note that not all of these warnings apply to each fund and there is no direct relationship between the number of fund risk warnings and the investment risk rating for each fund shown on the previous page. Risk warning code A B C D E F G Risk warning description Investment is not guaranteed: The value of an investment is not guaranteed and can go down as well as up. You could get back less than you have paid in. Price: At times, the way a fund s price is calculated may need to change to ensure that those moving into and out of the fund and existing unitholders/shareholders are treated fairly and are not disadvantaged by any large cash flows. Suspend trading: Fund managers have the ability, in certain circumstances, to suspend trading in their for as long as necessary. When this occurs we will need to delay the cashing in or switching of units in the relevant fund. You may not be able to access your money during this period. The circumstances in which we may delay a switch, withdrawal or transfer can include but are not limited to the following: If a large number of customers want to take money out of the same fund at the same time. If there are practical problems selling the assets in which a fund is invested. If the fund (or part of it) is managed by an external company, they may insist on a delay. Stock lending: Where a fund is involved in the temporary transfer of securities, there is a risk that the borrower may not be able to return the security to its owner. This may have a negative effect on the performance of the fund. Derivatives: Most can invest in derivatives for the purpose of efficient portfolio management or risk reduction. For that also use derivatives for investment purposes, we apply an additional risk warning due to the possible increase in the risk and of the fund. Currency risk: Where a fund invests in share classes or securities priced in currencies other than the fund s base currency, changes in exchange rates can contribute to the value of the investment going up or down. Emerging : Where a fund invests in emerging, it is likely to be more volatile than one that invests in developed. These may not be as strictly regulated and securities may be harder to buy and sell than those in more developed. These may also be politically unstable, which can result in the fund carrying more risk. Smaller : Where a fund invests in the shares of smaller, these shares can be more volatile and may be harder to buy and sell than larger company shares, which can result in the fund carrying more risk. Fixed : Where a fund invests in fixed securities, such as corporate or government, changes in rates can contribute to the value of the investment going up or down. If rates rise, the value is likely to fall. Bonds with a lower credit rating are known as sub-investment grade or junk. These carry an increased risk that the issuer of the bond will be unable to continue the payments or return the capital at maturity. Specialist: Where a fund invests only in a specific or limited range of industry sectors, it may carry more risk than that invest across a broader range or variety of sectors. These can be more volatile and carry higher risk due to their lack of diversification. Derivatives: Where a fund uses derivatives for investment purposes, there may be an increase in the risk and of the fund. Some derivative also expose investors to counterparty or default risk where another party is unable to meets its obligations and pay what is due. This could result in the loss of the value of the derivative itself. 3

4 Risk warning code H I J K L M N O Risk warning description Cash/Money market : These are not cash deposit accounts but invest in money market instruments and short-term and can fall in value. In a low rate environment, the charges applied to a cash fund may be greater than its return, so you could get back less than you have paid in. Physical : Where a fund directly invests in physical, these properties are not easy to buy or sell. In exceptional circumstances, we may need to delay the cashing in or switching of units in the fund and you may not be able to access your money during this period. The value of properties held is generally a matter of the valuer s opinion rather than fact. Index-: Where a fund invests in index-, changes in inflation rates can contribute to the value of the investment going up or down. If inflation falls, the value is likely to fall. High cash : Due to the way some are managed there may be periods when they have large cash holdings. This can be a deliberate asset allocation decision or while suitable investment opportunities are researched and selected. A fund s growth potential may be less during this period. Reinsured : Where a fund invests in an underlying fund operated by another insurance company through a reinsurance agreement, if the other insurance company were to become insolvent, you could lose some or all of the value of your investment in this fund. Ethical: Where a fund invests only in sectors and securities that meet its agreed ethical criteria, it may carry more risk than which are free from these restrictions. The ethical invested in can be involved in new and innovative technologies or new and can therefore have a higher risk profile than organisations involved in more mainstream activities. Alternative : Where a fund invests in alternatives, it may carry more risk, as these instruments are generally priced less regularly and may be harder to buy and sell than in more conventional asset classes. Alternatives include commodities, hedge, private equity, Convertible : Where a fund invests in convertible, it will experience the associated with holding until conversion, at which point it will experience the associated with holding equities. To compensate for having additional value through the option to convert from a bond to an equity, a convertible bond typically has a coupon rate lower than that of a similar, non-convertible bond. 4

5 Fund charges The you can choose from To help you get a better understanding of the available to choose from, we have outlined some high-level details below.

Please note there may be circumstances when the fund managers decide to increase the level of AMC. If this happens, you can switch to another fund with an AMC at or below the previous level at no extra cost.

After a year s continuous investment in the fund, we may pay a final bonus when we cash in units to provide benefits on death, at retirement, if there is a transfer to another approved arrangement or if you switch all your out of the fund. The performance of the FL FP With Profits Fund depends on the investment profits and losses the fund makes and on the decisions we take about their distribution. We don t guarantee future bonuses. Please see Cost of guarantees and Market Value Reduction below. Before investing, it s important you read our With-Profits Summary. If you haven t received this, please contact us now. The summary explains the main points about with-profits, our current approach to managing the FL FP With Profits Fund and deciding on bonus, and the factors that can influence the value of your investment. Cost of guarantees We may set aside some of the underlying investment value each year. This is to help cover the cost of the guarantees we provide to you and other with-profits policyholders (we explain the guarantees we provide to you under the 'Market Value Reduction' heading). It has the same effect as reducing the investment return each year on the fund. We regularly review the amount we need to set aside and it can go up or down. If we don t need all of the amount set aside, we ll use it to improve returns. If your personal illustration shows some or all of your contributions invested in the FL FP With Profits Fund, the illustrations of future benefits allow for this. The With-Profits Summary Supplementary Information page on our website at shows how much we re currently setting aside. Market Value Reduction In certain circumstances, such as periods of stock market, we may need to apply a Market Value Reduction (MVR) if you cash in or switch your units out of the fund. This is because we also have to safeguard the s of the remaining policyholders in the fund. By applying an MVR we are in effect lowering the unit price to ensure that it more accurately reflects the value of the fund s underlying. We guarantee we won t apply this reduction at your original selected retirement date or on death. market 19
