Investment Growth Bond

Investment Growth Bond Strategy Papers


Estate Planning and Wealth Distribution

Investment bonds are being increasingly deployed as a strategic investment tool for estate planning.

Why? Investment bond proceeds are tax-free upon death and can be paid to a broad range of nominated beneficiaries such as extended family, unrelated individuals or charities.

Additionally, CommInsure offers a Death Benefit Guarantee that provides certainty on the minimum amount that will be paid on the death of the last surviving life insured.


Tax solutions for high income individuals

Investment bonds can be used to provide high income individuals with a means to increase their wealth in a tax-effective manner.

At their simplest, investment bonds combine features of a managed fund and a life insurance policy, with the added benefit of the investment bond provider paying 30 per cent tax on any earnings in the bond, rather than an individual paying tax on earnings at their marginal tax rate.

More strategies to follow in the upcoming weeks.
