Understanding your bond
Your bond options
Your bond doesn’t have an end date so you can keep your money invested for as long as you need. And because we know that things can change over the years, your bond is flexible enough to change with you.
If you’re invested in one of our Guaranteed Funds, you'll have to make a decision about what you want to do with your investment as the fund's fifth anniversary approaches.
If you don’t tell us what you want to do, we'll automatically move your money out of the Guaranteed Fund into our Deposit Fund on the fifth anniversary. Although the Deposit Fund is our lowest risk fund, it doesn’t offer any guarantees, so the value of your investment could still fall. Because the Deposit Fund is low risk, its potential for growth is also low. The fund is therefore only suitable as a short-term place for your money.
If you decide to move your money out of the Guaranteed Fund at any other time, we won’t be able to apply the money-back guarantee. This means you may get back less than you paid in.
If you’re invested in one of our other funds then you can choose to withdraw your money at any time, however an early exit charge may apply.
We’ll contact you in the run up to your fifth anniversary to tell you everything you need to know. In the meantime, you can find more details here
