Lincoln re-launch investment bond

Lincoln Financial Group is re-launching its investment bond with improved allocation, a new loyalty bonus and reduced charges.

With its new structure, the investment bond now takes up third position on the Exchanges comparative unit-linked bond table.

A one-off loyalty bonus of one per cent is now added at the end of year ten and from the end of year five onwards, 0.3 per cent a year is rebated. There are 22 life funds available to the bond, managed by 10 fund managers. The minimum investment is 5,000.
