                     For consideration by solicitors for the Appointor(s)
                     and/or Trustees

                     IMPORTANT: This Deed will not be suitable for use where
                     changes to trustees under more than one trust are required.

                     This deed should not be used if the Settlor is exercising the
                     power to remove a trustee without their consent. Please use a
                     Deed of Removal (reference CTS47) for this purpose.

                     Friends Provident categorises each trustee of an investment contract as a 'retail client'. This gives
                     you the highest level of protection available under the Financial Services Authority's (FSA) Conduct of
                     Business Rules. If you would otherwise be categorised under FSA Rules as a 'professional client' or
                     an 'eligible counterparty' then you may not have access to the Financial Services Compensation
                     Scheme or Financial Ombudsman Service. Please contact your financial adviser if you require further
                     details.




                    This deed should be completed with the details that appear on your policy
                    document.    Please ensure you provide all the information requested in the
                    Schedule (policy number etc.). When completed, please send this deed to:
