Invest with confidence

Help your clients invest confidently.

Our Investment Growth Bond offers clients an Investment Option Guarantee on four of our nine investment options, designed to provide certainty around the minimum value of a client’s holding in an investment option.

Investment Option Guarantees

Offered on four of our nine investment options:

NC - Cash

NC - Global Fixed Interest

NC - Conservative

NC - Diversified

The NC-Cash option offers a guarantee that the unit price will never fall irrespective of the length of time the CommInsure IGB has been held. This means any rise in the unit price since the units were purchased is also guaranteed.

For the other three options, if your client withdraws or switches units after they've been held for a minimum period (two years for NC-Global Fixed Interest and three years for NC-Conservative and NC-Diversified options), the unit price used to calculate the withdrawal or switch will be at least equal to the price at the time your client was allocated those units or switched into this option.

Death Benefit Guarantee

Provides certainty as to the minimum amount that will be paid on the death of the last surviving life insured.

To qualify for the guarantee, the youngest life insured on the policy must be aged less than 85 years at policy commencement. If the last surviving life insured dies on or prior to their 90th birthday, CommInsure will pay the greater of the following amounts:

a. The cash value of the bond,

or

b. The lesser of the Net Contribution Value and the maximum amount (the maximum amount is $1 million per life insured).

See the PDS for full details.

What is an investment bond?

Also known as an insurance bond, it combines many of the features of a managed fund and a life insurance policy, with the added benefit of the investment bond provider paying 30% tax on any earnings in the bond, rather than an individual paying tax on earnings at their marginal tax rate.

Taxation considerations are general and based on present taxation laws and may be subject to change.
