Withdrawal of Regular Bonus

Any regular bonus declared under the MAPFRE MSV Life With Profits Fund may be withdrawn without deduction of the relevant exit charges. This applies to the Euro-denominated version of the product only.


You can appoint one or more beneficiaries to receive the benefit under the Plan, when this is due. There is no charge for this arrangement to be implemented and it requires only the completion of a simple form.
