In our illustrations for our pension and life products, we use growth rates which are based on the actual funds being invested in. These growth rates are reviewed on a regular basis. All asset classes have been updated with effect from April 2017 to show a 3.0% spread between Low and Mid, and between Mid and High.
It's important to remember that the plan values we show in our illustrations are only a guide and are not guaranteed in any way, and you may get back less than the amount originally invested.
You can find out more details about our asset class growth rates and our fund level growth rates below:
