Novia’s GIA available via Friends’ offshore bond

Friends Provident International is making Novia’s gross general investment account accessible within its offshore bond.

The move means advisers can now choose from the range of assets available within the FPI  offshore bond and hold them within the Novia gross GIA wrapper.

Not only can advisers access a wide range of investments but also have the benefit that any interest distributions are paid without the deduction of tax and all the hassle of having to reclaim it let alone lost investment performance for their client.”
