Think of an investment bond as a smart savings solution. Why? Because unlike other savings and investment vehicles, there’s no personal tax to pay when you hold the bond for 10 years or more.
Plus, you can choose an investment option within the bond that suits your risk profile and timeframe, you have the flexibility to keep contributing to the bond over time and it can be used as an estate planning vehicle.
If you’re ready to start a long-term, smart savings journey, consider our four tax-effective, contemporary investment bond options.
Investment bonds can be used to transfer wealth to your beneficiaries – on your terms. This can reduce upfront and ongoing legal costs associated with setting up trusts and complex wealth transfer structures.
Investment bonds can be used by parents, grandparents, family members or friends to create wealth on behalf of a child or children. The investment can then be transferred to the child/ren when they reach a specified age.
