Investment Plans

Please note that past investment performance is not a guide to the future performance.  The potential for profit is accompanied by the possibility of loss.  The value of investment funds and the income from them may go down as well as up and investors may not get back the original amount invested.

An investment plan is a long term commitment.  The content of this website does not override the governing documents of the investment terms and conditions issued by the Product Provider.

Pensions and retirement

A personal pension plan is a long-term investment. The earliest age that you may access your benefits is 55.

Thousands of people have lost their life savings after falling for a scam – don’t be the next victim:

  • Reject unsolicited contact about pensions and investments
