Our funds for pension policies
We have a range of funds for Aviva and ex-Friends Life policies for you to take a look at. And once you’ve read all the relevant information, you can take a look at the Aviva Fund Centre.
Each product has a specific range of funds to choose from, which are sometimes further split into different types of ‘fund series’ according to when the fund was launched. 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 range when you joined the plan.
If you're unsure of your product name or fund range, 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.

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 in your policy documents.
Fund manager initial charge
This is an upfront charge taken by Fund Managers from the amount paid into their funds. This is in addition to the purchase price of the fund, and results in a reduced amount of units being purchased. For example, a £10,000 investment into a fund with a 5% initial charge will only purchase £9,500 worth of units/shares.
Negotiated initial charge
This is the amount you will be charged by the Fund Manager on purchases made through Aviva. We always look to get the best deals for our customers by negotiating with the Fund Manager to lower their upfront charges, usually resulting in a charge of 0%.
Fund management charges
Fund managers take charges that depend on the investments chosen. These figures may be shown as the ongoing charge figure (OCF), total expense ratio (TER), or for insured funds, simply the annual fund charge. These cover the charges made by the fund manager for managing the investment as well as expenses incurred by the fund. Please note these charges are variable and may change over time.
