Capital investment bonds

A capital investment bond aims to provide investors with a low risk flexible environment that gives your capital the potential to grow over the long term. Most capital investment bonds are designed to grow over the medium and long term and should be help for at least a five year term.

An advantage of a capital investment bond is that investors are likely to make money during any upturn in the investment market but are insulated against falls in the value of stocks. Capital investment funds are also flexible with a huge variety of different funds managed by separate fund managers who have tailored investment strategies designed to suit different types of investors.

Capital investment bonds are designed to allow you to make new deposits and withdrawals throughout the investing term. It is important that you check the individual terms and conditions of any capital investment bond that you wish to invest in as some providers charge for making withdrawals and the charges for managing the bond can vary.
