Scottish Life International launches 5th Income & Growth Bond

Scottish Life International is launching the fifth in the series of its Income & Growth Bonus Bond, the first four of which achieved combined sales of £200m since February 2000.

Series 5 of the Income & Growth Bonus Bond offers either gross annual income of 11.2 per cent each year or 2.7 per cent each quarter over three years, or a gross potential return of 135.6 per cent over a three year term, dependent on the performance of stockmarket indices.
