With us, your clients are investing with a company that holds an A+ ‘Stable’ financial-strength rating from Standard & Poor’s. Select Investments start from £10,000 and, depending on your client's circumstances, could be a tax-efficient way to plan for the future.

The Select Investment bond offers:

  • Wide range of funds across sectors and the risk spectrum - managed by Aviva Investors and other leading fund houses
  • Range of unit-linked and with-profits funds with valuable guarantees
  • Simple, transparent charging structure with no early-exit charges and no reduced allocation for older clients

Client suitability

Select Investment is designed for clients who:

  • Have maximised their ISA allowance

  • Want the flexibility to invest for growth or income or both
  • Are looking for an investment that offers some funds with guarantees

Adviser remuneration

Initial adviser charge

We deduct this from the initial investment before we set up the policy.

Single adviser charges

You can take a single charge from Select Investment on an ad-hoc basis.

Ongoing adviser charges

If you've agreed an ongoing charge with your client, we can take the charge from the Select Investment bond on your behalf - and pay it to you whenever suits you and your client. As the charge is classed as a withdrawal it counts towards allowances for chargeable gains or market value reductions (MVRs).

You have a range of options for how you set up an ongoing adviser charge:

  • Percentage of the initial investment
  • Specified monetary amount
  • Proportionally across funds - or taken from specific funds
  • Paid monthly, quarterly, half yearly or annually on the 3rd day of the month
  • First payment date can be deferred
