Optional capital guarantee

Add security to your client’s investment with an optional capital guarantee, for a fixed 10-year term. Here are some important things to note:

  • The guarantee is only available with the Smoothed Managed Cautious fund.
  • The Bond will be worth at least the amount it was when the guarantee was added – less any money paid out of the bond during the guarantee term.
  • If the Bond is worth more than the guaranteed amount at the end of the term – your client gets the extra too.
  • There is an additional charge for the guarantee.
