Investing for the future

Your professional life may leave you little time to attend to investments. Your Private Banking and Advice Manager can assist you with evaluating your attitude for risk and considering the investment and pension products available to  you. This  can help considerably when deciding which products will suit your future ambitions.

We can guide you on:

  • Stocks and shares ISAs
  • Unit trusts, OEICs and structured products
  • Onshore and offshore bonds
  • Pensions, including self-invested pension products (SIPPs)

Please remember that the value of investments, and the income from them, may fall as well as rise. Investors may not receive back the full amount originally invested. Past performance is not a guide to future performance.

Protecting your lifestyle

Preparing for the unforeseeable, such as illness, accident or even death, could provide an important financial cushion for you and your family.

We’re ready to help with the following:

  • Mortgage protection plans
  • Critical illness cover
  • Life assurance.

Replacing income if you can’t work
If you’re prevented from working by accident or long-term illness, income protection can be an important safety net.

The plan can be designed to support your work sickness scheme, and will provide reassurance that you’ve planned replacement income should you experience a qualifying sickness or condition.

Cover if you become critically ill
A critical illness could change your life irrevocably. It could interrupt your career, and have long-term effects that affect your family, lifestyle and home. Critical illness cover could help you cope financially, providing funds to help you adjust, adapt your home or simply enjoy quality time with your loved ones.

Life assurance
Life assurance could help support your family's finances should the worst happen. There are many different types of life assurance. Depending on your specific needs, life assurance can protect a mortgage, your family or provide you with a solution to help mitigate inheritance tax. Whatever your circumstances, your Private Banking and Advice Manager can set up a suitable life assurance policy to protect what matters most.

YOUR HOME MAY BE REPOSSESSED IF YOU DO NOT KEEP UP REPAYMENTS ON YOUR MORTGAGE.
