There are many reasons why bonds would provide a suitable investment vehicle for your money, though for most people Unit Trusts and Oeics are more tax-efficient. This has become even clearer since changes to Capital Gain Tax in the 2009 budget. Useful features of Bonds for more specialist planning scenarios include the tax deferred status, the ability to write the investment in trust and reduce the inheritance tax liability on an estate, and exclusive access to expensive investment links like guaranteed or protected profits funds are to name a few. Bonds can provide income or growth and when income is required there are now bonds that can offer a set minimum guaranteed income for life of the plan holder.
Many financial advisers prefer insurance bonds to Unit Trusts and Oeics because they typically pay 7% commission.
