What is a bond?
Investment bonds are a medium to long-term investment, letting you invest in a mixture of investment funds that are managed by professional investment managers. Our bonds don’t have an end date, so you can stay invested in them for as long as you like. Remember, the value of investments can go down as well as up and you may get back less than you’ve invested.
How we keep in touch
We’ll keep you up to date so you can stay in control.
Each year, on the anniversary of when you took out your bond, we’ll send a statement that shows the value of your bond and which funds it invests in.
