Liverpool Victoria launches with profits growth bond

Liverpool Victoria Friendly Society is launching a single premium with profits growth bond giving capital growth over five years.

The With Profit Growth Bond has a minimum investment of £3,000 if taken directly through Liverpool Victoria, or £10,000 through IFAs.

Liverpool Victoria spokesman Kate Coney says: “With profits bonds are an ideal investment for the investor looking for potentially higher returns than those offered by building societies and banks, but without taking the higher risk normally associated with direct stock market investment.”
