The PruFund Investment Plan Mark 3 is a single premium investment bond that lets your client invest in a range of different funds, while providing a small element of life cover.
The PruFund range is designed to spread the investment risk by investing in many different assets, managed by the investment expertise of the Treasury and Investment Office (T&IO) (includes the team formerly known as Prudential Portfolio Management Group Limited (PPMG)). Your client can choose to invest in up to five of the following PruFund funds:
(The PruFund Protected Growth Fund is currently closed to new investments)
The PruFund Cautious Fund and PruFund Protected Growth Fund are only available for selection at the beginning of the plan.
One of the key strengths of the PruFund range of funds is their diversified range of assets. This can help reduce investment volatility compared to direct exposure to the stockmarket. The funds invest in Prudential's With-Profits Fund.
More about our With-Profits Strategy
Prudential's With-Profits philosophy of investing in a wide range of assets, coupled with the smoothing of investment returns, the expertise of the Treasury and Investment Office (T&IO) (includes the team formerly known as Prudential Portfolio Management Group Limited (PPMG)) and the flexibility afforded by the size and strength of the Fund, has enabled them to take advantage of opportunities as markets have changed.
