Prudence Bond

Your Prudence Bond, which was also known as the Prudence Managed Bond, a single premium investment bond that is designed to provide you with medium to long term capital growth. This product is no longer available to new customers.

You can add a top-up payment to your existing bond

You might be looking to:

  • Take a lump sum from your bond.
  • Make regular cash withdrawals.
  • Change the funds your bond's invested in.

If you’re considering any of these, please look at the links at the bottom of this page.

Some of your money might have been put into our With-Profits Fund, which invests in lower to medium risk investments. However, you might also be able to access other investments through the bond.

The value of your investment can go down as well as up so you might get back less than you put in. If you take more money from the plan than the amount your investment has grown by, the value of your investment will be less than you’ve put in.

Benefits

  • You can take regular or one off withdrawals from your bond, subject to the terms and conditions of your bond. Please have a look at your Key Features Document for more information.

    Please note that certain withdrawals could be subject to charges or a Market Value Reduction. Any withdrawals, charges or Market Value Reductions have the effect of reducing your fund value. 

  • You can set the amount of regular withdrawals and choose how often you'd like to take them, within certain minimum and maximum levels.

    If you pay tax, your bond has a valuable tax benefit. This lets you to take out up to 5% of your investment each year from your plan for up to 20 years - free from any immediate tax liability. There might however be additional tax liability when you cash in your plan.

This is based on our understanding, of current taxation, legislation and HM Revenue & Customs practice, all of which are liable to change without notice. The impact of taxation (and any tax reliefs) depends on individual circumstances.

What will I get back?

This depends on many things including investment performance, which can go down as well as up, any withdrawals, features you choose, charges and any tax liability that might apply.

Topping up your investment

You can top-up your bond whenever you like. The minimum top-up amount and maximum investment levels vary depending on the bond version you have and the charge option.
