But with so many ways to invest and numerous funds to place your money in, it can be confusing. With the help of your financial adviser, the aim of this brochure is to explain different fund features, and give you information about the range we offer through the Wealth Solutions Bond. This brochure should be read with the Key Features of the Wealth Solutions Bond (XINV31/A). 2

3 Choosing the right funds Regardless of the amount you have to invest, we all want our money to increase in value over the longer term. Whether your main aim is to achieve investment growth or to provide an income the Wealth Solutions Bond has the funds for you. Your financial adviser will be able to help you choose the right combination of funds to suit your investment requirements and individual circumstances, all at a level of investment risk that you are comfortable taking. Please note your financial adviser may charge you for this advice. The value of your Wealth Solutions Bond, and any income from it is and can go up and down. You could get back less than you ve paid in. We constantly review and refine our fund range so we can provide you with a selection to choose from. Our range of fund solutions includes funds concentrating on one particular type of investment, such as Shares (including UK, Overseas and Markets), or Fixed Interest we call these asset classes. We also offer funds that blend together different asset classes to create a single managed solution. In addition to these we have a broad range of Multi Manager funds. These invest in a range of other funds controlled by different fund managers. Their aim is to diversify risk. The importance of diversification Quite often a financial adviser will recommend spreading your money through a number of different investments. This may reduce the risk of losing money. This approach is known as diversification not putting all your eggs in one basket. By using diversification a financial adviser will be able to help you spread your investments across asset classes and areas of the world in a way to reduce the overall risk of your portfolio. This can be within a single fund solution, or a number of different funds. Investing for income or growth s with growth potential If you re investing to achieve capital growth on your original investment, funds that are aimed at providing growth potential will be more appropriate to your needs. These funds use the growth achieved by their underlying investments, such as dividends and interest payments, to increase the value of the fund price. These types of funds are commonly called accumulation funds they accumulate growth by automatically reinvesting any gains they make. If you invest in accumulation funds, you can also choose to take regular withdrawals from your Wealth Solutions Bond. These can be for a fixed amount or a percentage of your initial investment. Please see the Key Features of the Wealth Solutions Bond (XINV31/A) document for more details. If you decide to invest in our accumulation funds, you can invest in up to ten funds at any time. 3

4 s to provide an income When you invest specifically to receive a regular income, there is an additional group of funds available for you to choose from. These funds invest in the same way as accumulation funds, but rather than reinvesting any gains, they distribute income to investors at regular intervals. We call this group, income distribution funds. As these funds pay out the amount of actual income generated from the underlying investments in your chosen fund, the amount of the income distributions will go up and down. Within the Wealth Solutions Bond we offer a number of funds for you to choose from, each with its own cycle for paying income, either monthly, quarterly or every six months. If you decide to invest in our income distribution fund group, you can invest in up to five funds at any time. Where the Wealth Solutions Bond is part of our Discounted Gift Plan or Loan Trust Plan income distribution funds are not available. Investing with Friends Life F&C Asset Management plc Investment specialist, F&C Asset Management plc (F&C) is an independently listed company, which manages funds with the aim of achieving above-average returns. Through our relationship with F&C we offer you a range of funds, which includes those focusing on socially responsible investment, as well as income distribution funds and Multi Manager funds. External investment solutions With the expertise of external investment consultancies, we have selected a number of investment partners who we believe diversify and enhance our range of funds. In order to link the Wealth Solutions Bond to these external funds, your money is first pooled together in a Friends Life fund with other investors to achieve a greater buying power. Your money is then invested in the underlying external fund. 4

5 Socially responsible investment With growing awareness of social, ethical and environmental issues it is increasingly important for to have a strong, clear attitude towards social responsibility. We strive to lead by example. We offer a range of funds that are focused on socially responsible issues. We class these funds into three categories; ethical, green and engagement, we ve done this to help you understand the values and investment criteria each of the funds follow. Ethical These are ethically-screened funds that avoid or select on the basis of a wide range of social, ethical, environmental or governance issues. Companies may be screened on the basis of what they do or how they operate. The exact approach taken and the level of emphasis on each issue may vary from fund to fund. Green The funds main or entire focus is environmental or green issues. They are often regarded as themed funds and often do not always fit the definition of being an ethical fund, as they may not specifically screen out. These funds tend to invest in a restricted universe of, which meet certain environmental standards. Engagement An engagement approach can apply to an ethical fund, a green fund or a standard non-screened fund. This approach involves fund managers using their rights and responsibilities as shareholders to encourage more responsible business practices. Applying engagement to non-screened funds gives fund managers the option to proactively encourage positive change in that do not meet the high standards of screened funds. 5

6 The Stewardship approach Stewardship our range of strictly screened ethical funds managed by F&C were launched in 1984 to give individual investors, who cared about more than simply investment returns, somewhere to invest their money. These funds invest in that make a positive contribution to society, while seeking to avoid whose activities may cause damage or harm. The screening policies are constantly reviewed to ensure that Stewardship maintains an up-to-date and relevant strict ethical approach at all times. Further details on Stewardship can be found on our website at External ethical fund solutions We have selected a number of investment partners to improve the range of ethical options now available to you. The key characteristics we look for are good future performance prospects, transparent ethical screening processes, competitive pricing and an experienced, well resourced and stable fund management team. 6

7 distribution funds These funds pay out the level of income generated by the assets in your chosen fund. This is paid to investors as income distributions. As the level of income generated will vary then the amount of income distributions will go up and down. Distribution payments are made on the first day of the month. The following table shows the payment dates for each fund and their ex-distribution date. If you switch between funds the timing of your switch may affect when you next receive a distribution payment. If you do not switch into the new fund before the corresponding ex-distribution date you will not receive a distribution payment from it. For example, if you are switching to the FL Thames River Distribution you must switch before 1st January for the 1st March distribution to be paid. distributed Distribution date Ex-distribution date FL Artemis Strategic Bond Inc Quarterly 1 st February/1 st May/ 1 st August/1 st November 1 st January/1 st April/ 1 st July/1 st October FL F&C Strategic Bond Inc Monthly 1 st of each month 1 st of previous month FL Fidelity MoneyBuilder Inc Monthly 1 st of each month 1 st of previous month FL Invesco Perpetual Monthly Plus Inc Monthly 1 st of each month 1 st of previous month FL Investec Diversified Inc Quarterly 1 st March/ 1 st June/ 1 st September/ 1 st December 1 st January/ 1 st April/ 1 st July/ 1 st October FL Kames Strategic Bond Inc Quarterly 1 st April/1 st July/ 1 st October/1 st January 1 st February/1 st May/ 1 st August/1 st November FL Monthly Distribution Inc Monthly 1 st of each month 1 st of previous month FL Thames River Distribution Inc Quarterly 1 st March/ 1 st June/ 1 st September/ 1 st December 1 st January/ 1 st April/ 1 st July/ 1 st October FL UK Equity Inc Half-yearly 1 st July/ 1 st January 1 st May / 1 st November Switching funds If you want to you can switch between funds. You can change your funds free of charge, up to 12 times a bond year. This is the 12 month period from the anniversary of the bond starting. We charge 15 for each extra switch. You can invest in up to 10 funds at any one time, unless you choose our income distribution funds, in which case you can invest in five funds at a time. You can also switch between the accumulation and income distribution fund groups. However, within the first five years of making an investment or additional investment you can only do this once. The switch between fund groups will be included as one of your 12 free switches. If you want to switch into or out of income distribution funds, you must switch 100% of your investment, as you cannot be invested in a mix of accumulation and income distribution funds. Please refer to the Key Features of the Wealth Solutions Bond (XINV31/A) for more details. In exceptional circumstances we may delay the switching of units for up to one month, or for funds invested in, for up to six months. Please refer to the Key Features of the Wealth Solutions Bond (XINV31A) for more details. 7

8 Charges and fund risks Charges The charges we take cover the cost of setting up your plan. They also include the cost of administering your plan, professionally investing your money and an element of life cover. However, they do not cover any fee you may have to pay your financial adviser. The charging structure that applies to your Wealth Solutions Bond investment will depend on the remuneration agreement that you have made with your financial adviser in respect of any advice you receive. New product terms will apply where new advice is provided in respect of a Wealth Solutions Bond investment, where we can no longer pay commission to your financial adviser. They also apply where no further advice in respect of a Wealth Solutions investment has been given, and your financial adviser has given up the commission that they would normally be due. The existing (legacy) product terms will continue to apply to a Wealth Solutions Bond investment where no advice is given and commission is already being paid to your financial adviser. Additional expenses With all investment funds a share of expenses, such as fees to auditors and trustees, may be payable. We show these for each fund as at 31 December 2009 on pages 11 to 14. Additional expenses change over time. Performance related fee The BlackRock UK Absolute Alpha fund has a performance related fee. The fee is directly related to the performance of the fund when its return exceeds a certain level and is payable to the fund manager. The amount of this charge will vary according to the level of fund performance and the process the fund uses to calculate the fee. We have assumed a certain level of fee when calculating the additional expenses described above. Please note the fee could be higher or lower than we have assumed. The level of growth is, the amount you get back will depend on how the investments perform and on the tax treatment of your investment. Please refer to the fund information on page 28 and your illustration for more information. Your adviser will be able to confirm the basis on which your Wealth Solutions Bond investment is being made. Alternatively, you can contact us for details. Over the lifetime of your bond we take an annual management charge (AMC) from the individual funds before we work out the unit prices. We show the AMC for each fund for Wealth Solutions Bond investments written under new product terms on pages 11 to 14. For Wealth Solutions Bond investments written under the existing (legacy) terms, in addition to the AMCs that we take from the individual funds as shown on pages 11 to 14, we also take an extra AMC of 0.05% a year by cancelling units every month. Please see your illustration for the AMCs that apply to your Wealth Solutions Bond investment. The Key Features of the Wealth Solutions Bond (XINV31/A) and At a Glance (XINV31/Q) documents contain more information on charges. 8

9 risk warnings There are risks associated with investing in funds, or types of funds. In this document we show which risk warning or warnings apply to each fund. These are all explained below. Not all of these warnings will apply to each fund. Risk warning type not guaranteed Risk warning code A Risk warnings The value of an investment is and can go up and down depending on performance. You could get back less than you have paid in. Specialist Derivatives Cash B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P At times, a fund may need to change the way its price is calculated, to ensure that those moving into and out of the fund are treated fairly. This can have a negative effect on a fund s price and performance. managers have the ability, in exceptional circumstances, to suspend in their funds 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. Where a fund aims to generate an income, we reinvest any income back into the fund to increase the value of the units. Where a fund invests overseas, the value can go up and down simply because of changes in currency exchange rates. Where a fund invests in emerging it is likely to be more volatile than one that invests in developed. These can be unstable and less liquid, so the fund may carry more risk. Some funds invest in the shares of smaller. These shares can be more volatile and less liquid than larger company shares, so the funds may carry more risk. Where a fund invests in fixed interest, such as company or government bonds, the value may go up and down as interest rates change. If interest rates rise, the value is likely to fall. Some high yielding bonds are known as junk bonds. These carry an increased risk that the issuer of the bond will be unable to continue the interest payments or return the capital at maturity. s that invest in specific industry sectors may carry more risk than those spread across several sectors. These funds can be more volatile and higher risk due to their limited exposure. Derivatives are complex and funds that use them for investment purposes may be more volatile. These funds are considered to be higher risk than funds that invest only in shares. Cash funds are not cash deposit accounts and can fall in value. In a low interest rate environment the charges applied to the fund may be greater than its return, so you may not get back all of your original investment. funds mainly invest in commercial properties which are not easy to sell. In exceptional circumstances, we may need to delay the cashing in or switching of units in the fund. You may not be able to access your money during this period. Where a fund is involved in the temporary transfer of, there is always the 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. Where a fund invests in index linked bonds, the value may go up and down as the rate of inflation changes. If inflation falls, the value is likely to fall. Some funds invest in the shares of investment trusts, which may own commercial and residential properties. investment trusts are stock market listed, and their shares can be affected by the performance of global stock. Due to the way some funds 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. 9

10 Changed circumstances Please note there may be circumstances when the external fund managers decide to increase the level of annual management charge for new and existing customers. If this happens, we ll offer you a free switch to another fund with an annual management charge at or below the previous level. We may even close the external fund concerned. Please ask your financial adviser for an up to date personal illustration before you make an investment. Your approach to investment risk The following key will help you understand the different of risk you can take when investing your money.
