Our range of Aviva and ex-Friends Life funds
Each product has a specific range of funds to choose from, which is usually denoted by the 'fund series'. If a fund has more than one series there may be a difference in the unit prices and charges. If you’re an existing customer, you will have been assigned a particular fund series when your investment started.
Tip: If you're unsure of your product name or fund series, you can check your annual statement (the fund series will be displayed as ‘S2’ or ‘(CGU)’ for example). If you don’t have your annual statement to hand, you can check our list of products shown below.

If a fund has a particular charge, you’ll see this disclosed on the Aviva Fund Centre. This charge is in addition to your product charges, which you’ll find details of in your policy documents.
This charge is taken into account in the buying or selling price.
Extra management charge/additional yearly charge
With certain funds you’ll have to pay an extra charge; this reflects the extra cost of managing these funds. The charge you'll pay will vary depending on the fund you choose. For bond customers: for funds with a guarantee, the extra charge will only apply up to the guarantee point.
Total additional yearly charge
This is the total sum of the extra management charge/additional yearly charge and any fund manager expense charge (FMEC).
Fund manager expense charge (FMEC)
FMECs are additional charges that cover the fund manager’s expenses connected with buying, selling, valuing, owning and maintaining the assets in the funds. This charge is taken into account in the unit price. FMECs may vary from year to year.
