How we manage our With-Profits fund

Principles and Practices of Financial Management (PPFM)

Our PPFM explains how we manage our With-Profits fund including the nature and extent of the decisions we take to manage the fund and how we apply discretion to treat customers and shareholders fairly, by managing their sometimes competing and conflicting interests.

The PPFM covers all with-profits policies issued in the UK by companies in M&G plc (i.e. by The Prudential Assurance Company Limited (PAC), Scottish Amicable Life plc (SAL) which were transferred to PAC with effect from 31 December 2002, Prudential (AN) Limited (PANL) which were transferred to PAC with effect from 31 October 2010, Prudential International Assurance plc (PIA)), and Scottish Amicable Life Assurance Society which were transferred to PAC with effect from 30 September 1997.  It also covers the with-profits annuity policies transferred from the Equitable Life Assurance Society to PAC.

The Principles define the overarching standards used in managing PAC's with-profits business and describe the approach used in responding to longer-term changes in the business and economic environment. The Practices describe the approach used in responding to changes in the business and economic environment in the shorter-term, and as a result, they will change more frequently than Principles.
