The minimum investment into a plan is £100,000. A minimum of £250 month or £10,000 single payment must be made into Royal & SunAlliance funds. The remainder can be self invested.

Maximum IFA commission is 3 per cent with a 0.5 per cent trail but a higher allocation can be offered as an alternative.
