How does a with profits fund work?
Any profits generated by the Order Insurance with profits fund in the previous calendar year (January to December) are used to add an annual bonus to savings plans the following year. And possibly a final bonus when the plan ends. The addition of bonuses will increase your plan’s value.
In adverse investment conditions, the Society reserves the right to apply a Market Value Reduction (MVR) for plans leaving the fund. This is to protect remaining investors during times of market uncertainty. We can confirm that we are not applying MVRs on plans currently. The Society prides itself on the fact we have never applied an MVR.
The addition of any bonus is not guaranteed and you may not get back the full amount originally invested, dependent on the investment conditions at withdrawal.
