You asked: Why does Aviva invest the with-profit funds in equities during volatile periods? Why don't you switch the with-profit funds out of equities during these periods?

The with-profit funds invest in a range of assets including equities, property, gilts, corporate bonds, cash and cash alternatives.

Although equities can be volatile in the short term, they have the potential to outperform other asset classes over the longer term. We may change the proportion invested in equities at any time as part of the ongoing management of the fund and to reflect market conditions.
