Scottish Mutual is extending the special terms of an extra 1 per cent guaranteed bonus for the first year on investments of more than £20,000 into its with-profits investment bond.

The offer means investments of £15,000 to £19,999 will get an additional guaranteed bonus of 0.75 per cent, investments of £20,000 to £49,999 will get 3.25 per cent and investments of £50,000-plus will get 3.5 per cent. The guarantee applies to the total investment, including additional payments. The company says it will remain in the with-profits market but that it is trying to reduce its dependence on the product.
