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
What you may be looking to do
- Take a lump sum from your bond.
- Make regular cash withdrawals.
- Change the funds your bond's invested in.
Some of your money may have been put into our With-Profits Fund, which invests in lower to medium risk investments. However, you may also be able to access other investments through the bond.
Remember that the value of investments can go down as well as up and you may not get back what you invested.
- You can take regular or one off withdrawals from your bond, subject to the terms and conditions of your bond. Please refer to your key features document for further information.
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 it is taken, within certain minimum and maximum levels.
If you pay tax, your bond has a valuable tax benefit. This allows 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 may 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 may apply.
Topping up your investment
You can top up your bond at any time. The minimum top-up amount and maximum investment levels vary depending on the bond version you hold and the charge option.
