This calculator projects a policyholder’s unit-linked savings fund, according to the amount and profile of the payments, the charges applied, fund growth and any expenses or commission. It also calculates the discounted profit for the provider, based on the above cashflows into the non-unit fund and whether any reserving allowance is applied.

Commission is borne by the policyholder directly (post-RDR world) and is taken from the premiums straight away. Initial commission is taken from any premiums paid in the first month, renewal commission is taken from premiums paid thereafter.
After commission but still at the beginning of the month, premiums, allocation charges and policy fees are then processed.
The fund management charge is taken at the end of the month.
Charges to the unit fund are paid monthly by dividing the annual charge by 12, except for the policy fee which is taken annually in advance.
Expenses are paid yearly by the provider on the policy anniversary.
The regular payment commences immediately from the first month.
Reserves (if applicable) are set up to eliminate future negative cashflows from the non-unit fund.
Mortality and lapse are ignored.
The policy fee is capped by the fund value.
The only policyholder benefit payable is the full unit fund value.
