Prospects Bond

Our Prospects Bond is no longer available. This bond is designed to provide longer term capital growth, so 10 years or more. Your money is invested in one of our With-Profits Fund, which invests in low to medium risk investments.

The Optimum Bonus (With-Profits) Fund aims to provide a higher Regular Bonus than the Optimum Return (With-Profits) Fund but is likely to have a lower Final Bonus.

The Final Bonus is not guaranteed and can be reduced, stopped or suspended at any time. The value of your investment can go down as well as up so you might get back less than you put in.

Withdraw your money at any time

You can withdraw money at any time. But please note that certain withdrawals could be subject to charges or a Market Value Reduction.

Any withdrawal taken will reduce the value of your plan. If the withdrawals are more than any overall growth achieved the value of your plan will reduce below the level of the original capital invested.

Invested in our With-Profits Fund

Your money is invested in the With-Profits Fund. The value of your fund will depend on your particular bond and how it has performed. Smoothed returns aim to protect you against some of the ups and downs associated with investing directly in the stock market. The value of your investment may fluctuate and is therefore not guaranteed. You may not get back the full amount of your investment.

Tax

Withdrawals, equivalent of 5% each year of the premiums, can be taken without creating an immediate tax liability. The allowance ends once you have withdrawn 100% of the amount you invested. You do not pay basic rate income tax or capital gains tax on profit from the bond. There may be tax liabilities depending on your circumstances if you withdraw more than this and when you cash in your bond.

HM Revenue & Customs may not tax these regular payments as income in the same way that dividends or interest are treated. This is based on our current understanding of current tax legislation and HM Revenue & Customs practice. Tax rules can change and the impact of taxation (and any tax relief) depends on your circumstances.

What will I get back?

This depends on many things, including the investment performance, which can go down as well as up, the length of time your money is invested, how we distribute any profits in the With-Profits Fund, charges and costs, smoothing and any tax liability, as well as other factors.
