You can switch funds at any time and we do not currently charge for this. The funds available are listed in the PruFunds Fund Guide. More information on these funds can also be found in the Fund Guide.
If you aren't sure about what choices to make with your investments then we would encourage you to speak to a Financial adviser.
The charges depend on your chosen funds(s) and are shown in your illustration and annual statements. You can also get information about how much is charged for each fund in the Fund Guide.
The Retirement Account allows you to take one off cash lump sums or a regular income.
