Flexibond

A Flexibond is an investment bond that is set up as an insurance policy that pays out 101% of the investment value on death, so that it can benefit from a favourable tax treatment.

Through a Flexibond you can invest into a number of NFU Mutual funds with varying levels of risk to suit a range of needs

A Flexibond is designed as a long-term investment to be held for at least 5 years, with no fixed term. Each policy year you can withdraw up to 5% of the total amount you’ve invested, without having to pay any tax at that time. If you take withdrawals of more than 5% of your accumulated allowance in a policy year or fully cash in your Flexibond, you may have to pay some higher or additional rate income tax. If you do not use your 5% allowance it can be carried forward to use in future years. 

A Flexibond can be opened singularly or jointly with up to four owners, with two lives assured. Through this service you can open a Flexibond with a maximum of two owners who are also the lives assured. If you wish to have more than two joint owners or different lives assured, please call us on 0800 980 8229.
