Assumptions and other key information:

• We have assumed a growth rate of 2.5%. Typically when investing over the long term (5 years or more), 2.5% growth is likely to require taking a medium level of risk, with anything higher requiring a more adventurous outlook, and anything lower being more cautious.
• The value of your investment may grow at a faster or slower rate meaning the value of your investment may be expected to fall from time to time as well as rise.
• The assumed growth rate is net of any fees that may apply, e.g. management fees.
• A government insurance levy (currently 1%) applies to investments in insurance based investment plans. The contributions above are assumed to be net of this levy.
• Exit tax of 41% is payable on investment growth.
• These assumptions and figures quoted are for illustrative purposes only.
• Calculations made using this calculator do not account for inflation. Inflation may reduce the real returns on your investment over time.

Warning: If you invest in this product you may lose some or all of the money you invest.
Warning: These funds may be affected by changes in currency exchange rates.
Warning: The value of your investment may go down as well as up.
