Investment Bonds – FAQs

Why consider investment fund based alternatives?

Given the historically low-interest-rate environment, many of us have lump sums in the bank, post office, or credit union that is seeing very little return.

What kind of investment plans do you offer?

We offer funds-based investments for medium to long-term investors. This allows for risk diversification across all asset types including cash, gilts, equities, property, and alternatives.

Can I protect my capital while still taking risk?

Investments with capital protection carry a guarantee from a financial institution that some or all of the original capital invested will be returned even if markets fall. There is usually an additional fund manager fee to account for the protected element.

How do I ensure best value for money?

We compare charges and investment performance of all leading investment providers. We ensure that the recommended investment option matches your appetite for investment risk and that any charges are fully transparent and kept to a minimum.
