A safe home for your client's investments

What is the European Wealth Bond?

The European Wealth Bond is specifically designed to be used with a Discretionary Asset Manager, appointed by Old Mutual International Ireland, meaning you can give your clients peace of mind that their investment strategy is being managed by experts who they trust.

This bond offers an extensive range of investments plus flexible withdrawals, tax efficiency and trust benefits, providing a joined up solution for UK-residents.

The Bond is specifically designed for use with a Discretionary Asset Manager and assets can only be managed by one.

Summary of the main benefits of our European Wealth Bond:

  • Minimum premium £100,000*
  • Designed to be a medium- to long-term investment (meaning five years or more)
  • Tax benefits for UK-resident investors
  • Wide choice of assets on offer, for example access to direct equities
  • Appointing a Discretionary Asset Manager makes it a suitable solution for clients who don’t want the responsibility and administrative burden of monitoring and managing the assets linked to the bond
  • Offers the possibility for lower Total Expense Ratios (TERs)
  • Access to a market leading range of trust solutions

* Although the Discretionary Asset Manager may impose their own, higher minimum premium.
