A household name. Maybe there is a profit to be made?

one of the original 'bags' of the community that developed out of carpetbagger.com, when we moved beyond building societies, AAAT.

part of my route into becoming an investor.. invested in a Bond way back and, after their 'merger with' Teachers Assurance, have a pension plan with them too.. so i shall watch with interest.

thank you.. but it's not really an achievement, it's just 'informed' speculating.

Still every respect. You took the chance and pulled it off.

LV members haven't received a windfall as a result of the sale of the general insurance division to Allianz, AAAT. https://www.allianz.co.uk/news-and-insi ... neral.html

..but i still think it's worth watching LV.

That will please 'im indoors as he has a life insurance policy with them.

But as LV is no longer selling car insurance etc will the ads disappear to be replaced with the new owners name? Seems odd I can now buy car and life insurance from LV and have policies with two different companies.
