IMPORTANT THINGS TO CONSIDER

  • One of the main differences between the With-Profits and Unit –Linked products is that the With-Profits product smooth’s out the investment losses/gains over the years with the aim of paying bonuses, which once added cannot be taken away. It does this by holding back some of the profits from good years to boost the profits in bad years.
  • The Unit-Linked product is more in the hands of the market and the value of your Investments can fall as well as rise and you may get back less than you originally invested.

All references to taxation are to UK taxation and are based on Shepherds Friendly Society's understanding of current legislation and H M Revenue and Customs practice which may change in the future. For our With Profits plans investment growth is by means of bonuses, the amount of which cannot be guaranteed throughout the term of the contract. Please ensure that you read the full terms and conditions of this plan which are available from your financial adviser or by contacting us directly.
