How is the interest calculated?
We calculate the interest on your Bond on a compound basis, meaning you receive interest on the initial investment value as well as the interest that is added to the plan each year. This is called compound interest, which means you will receive 15.1% interest on your initial lump sum investment once the 5-year term has ended.
