Flexibility and a choice of funds.
Our Flexibond product is a long-term investment to be held for at least five years, and offers you a choice of how to invest.
A Flexibond is an investment designed for people with savings in a bank or building society who are considering an alternative investment with more risk but with the potential for better returns.
A Flexibond is set up as an insurance policy, so that it can benefit from a favourable tax treatment. Because it's an insurance policy it has to provide some life cover. The life cover it provides is small, as the main purpose of the product is as an investment.
It's flexible, allowing you to choose where your money is invested. You can invest lump sums, start, stop and restart regular payments, change amounts and make withdrawals when you like.
A Flexibond is designed as a long-term investment and you should be prepared to leave your money invested for at least 5 years. There is no fixed term so you cash in your investment whenever you wish.
Details of this product can be found in Key Features of the NFU Mutual Flexibond. Please make sure you read and understand it before you decide to proceed with any purchase.
