How the My Sovereign Investment ISA works

 

Investment features

  • Use your Investment ISA allowance to invest tax-free from £10 a month, lump sums from £100, or a combination of both.
  • Once you have set up My Sovereign Investment (ISA) you can cash in or raise, lower, stop and restart payments at any time.
  • Provided you haven't made any withdrawals, on the 10th anniversary of the start date of your investment, you are guaranteed to get back at least as much as you have invested.
  • Your money will be invested in a My Sovereign Investment policy within a Scottish Friendly ISA which buys units in the Scottish Friendly Unitised With-Profits fund which may include stock market, property, cash and bond assets.

 

What you need to consider

  • You should consider this a medium to long-term investment for a period of at least five years.
  • If you cash in or take a withdrawal before or after the 10th anniversary, you may get back less than you have paid in.
  • When you cash in or take a withdrawal from your investment, the value of your units may either be increased by a final bonus or reduced by a market value reduction to bring it into line with the performance of the assets within the With-Profits fund.

What might I get back?

This depends on a number of factors

The amount you will get back from your My Sovereign Investment policy will depend on how much you have paid in, the length of time it has been invested, the investment performance in the fund over this time and the amount of money, if any, you have taken out of your policy.

It's important to note that if you cash in your money before the 10th anniversary, it is not guaranteed and you may get back less than you have paid in.

What might I get back from my policy?

Projected returns on £30 per month invested over 10 years and the effect of increasing your contributions each year*

What might I get back from a My Sovereign ISA

Projected returns on £2,000 single premium invested over 10 years

What might I get back from a My Sovereign ISA

Projected returns for illustration only. Remember your original investment is not guaranteed and you could get back less than the amounts shown.

*Total amount invested of £3,600 at 0% annual payment increase, £4,034 at 2.5% annual payment increase, £4,529 at 5% annual payment increase and £5,737 at 10% annual payment increase.

These figures are only examples and are not guaranteed. They are not minimum or maximum amounts. What you get back depends on how your investment grows, the actual level of future bonuses and on the tax treatment of the investment which could change in the future. You could get back more or less than the figures projected above. Your original investment is guaranteed if you cash in on the 10th anniversary of the start date of your investment; if you cash in or withdraw on a different date you may get back less than you have invested. Do not forget that inflation would reduce what you could buy in the future with the amounts shown. (For more details on the effect of charges on your plan, please see the Key Features).

The annual rates of growth for the illustration have been based on a reasonable estimate of potential returns. They are subject to the maximum projection rates specified by the Financial Conduct Authority. All figures include the deduction of actual charges assumed on the plan. These charges may vary in the future.

Scottish Friendly will send you a statement twice a year showing your policy's current value.
