Give yourself something big to look forward to

That dream holiday or big birthday celebration might feel out-of-reach for now, but we all need something to look forward to. That’s where long-term, low-cost, tax-exempt savings plans come in.

With our Family Bond, your money is invested for at least 10 years. You choose exactly when it becomes available when you open the Family Bond, so you could set it to mature on a milestone birthday or perhaps the date you plan to retire, as long as it's at least 10 years away.

Your money is invested in a fund that buys stocks and shares so the final value of the bond will depend on how the fund performs.

As it’s a long-term plan, you'll pay in a small amount monthly or a lump sum yearly so you can make saving regularly fit within your budget.

Choose to invest either £25 a month or a simple lump sum of £270 once a year.

Member Benefits

By taking out our Family Bond you will get access to discounts on groceries, shopping, cinema, days out and much more

What you need to know about Family Bonds

A Family Bond is a simple and tax-efficient way of regularly investing money over the long term. You can choose to invest £25 a month or £270 a year.

As long as you keep up payments and keep your money invested for at least 10 years, you won’t pay tax on the proceeds.

Our Family Bond also comes with some life cover, which pays out 75% of the total payments you're due to make, as long as you've kept regularly paying in.

There is an annual management charge of 1.95% for Family Bonds. For all other charges please see the key information document.
