Latest PruFund Expected Growth Rate (EGR) performance announcement – August 2019

Expected Growth Rates (EGRs)

The Expected Growth Rates (EGR) for all of the funds have changed. Click on the link below for further details. The EGR is the annualised rate which will be applied daily to the unit price of the fund. They are set quarterly by the Prudential Assurance Company Ltd (PAC) Directors, having regard to the expected long-term investment return (up to 15 years) on the assets of the funds.

We review Expected Growth Rates every three months, when they could rise or fall.

Find out the latest EGR rates, historic EGR rates and historic Unit Price Adjustments (UPAs).
