What is Reserve +?

Reserve + Charging Structures

Flexibility. Choice. Consolidation



Reserve + has been designed to help customers achieve their medium- to long-term investment goals.

It is suitable for people who have a lump sum to invest for at least five years, particularly those seeking capital growth, the flexibility to access their savings, or a combination of these.

With Reserve +, customers can invest to build up capital and, as life moves on and priorities change, use the bond’s flexibility to adapt to support new aspirations.

Customers can re-balance their portfolio whenever they need to, either by adjusting existing investments or exploring new options.

Reserve + provides flexibility and tax efficiency, plus access to the world’s investment markets through a diverse range of assets.
