Our guaranteed funds available through our investment bonds run for five years. So, when your investment reaches its fifth anniversary, you'll need to make a decision about what to do with the investment in the guaranteed fund. There are a number of options available which we will confirm to you in writing three months before the fifth anniversary date.
Your guarantee date is when we apply your money-back guarantee. It’s the fifth anniversary of the date you moved into a guaranteed fund. If you take your money out of a guaranteed fund at any other time, the guarantee won’t apply so you may not get back what you paid in.
If having a 100% guarantee is still your main investment aim, you could move into a Guaranteed 100 Fund.
If your aim is to have more potential for growth, but still keep most of your money protected, then you could choose a Guaranteed 90 Fund.
If your aims have changed, we’ve got a wide range of other investment funds for you to choose from.
If you want to take some money out, you don’t have to cancel your bond. You can take as much or as little as you need and move the rest into one or more of our other funds.
If you don’t choose one of the options at the fifth anniversary of the guaranteed fund you are invested in, we’ll automatically move your money out of the guaranteed fund into our Deposit Fund at the guarantee date. The Deposit Fund aims to protect your capital, however, returns and fund values are not guaranteed and you should be aware the management charges may be more than the investment return you receive.
