Slash and Burn Policy
Aviva (nee Norwich Union) has slashed the payouts on its with-profits (an ironic term, given how useless these products are) endowments and pensions.
Aviva runs several with-profits funds including those sold by; General Accident, Commercial Union, Norwich Union and Provident Mutual.
- A 25 year General Accident mortgage endowment is now down 8.4%
- Aviva Life is now down 12%
- Commercial Union down 7.7%.
Precisely why does the FSA allow life assurance companies to use the phrase "with profits", when it is very clear that they do not do that?
