Extracts From Government Publications


CP 106 "The Personal Investment Authority (PIA) issue guidance (Regulatory Update 85) in March 2001, asking provider firms to take steps to ensure that policyholders who were considering the surrender of a life policy were informed that they might be able to trade their policy instead."

COB 6.5.50R(5) "requires a firm to ensure that the policyholder is made aware of the existence of the secondary market and how he might access it."
"If you have a with-profits endowment policy, you may be able to sell it on the second-hand endowment market.
If you’ve been paying in for at least seven years, you’ll probably earn more if you sell a with-profits policy rather than cashing it in."
