Investments that play to the tune of your clients

With access to over 150 carefully chosen funds, the Canada Life Select Account allows your clients to invest for growth, a flexible tax-efficient income or a combination of both.

If taking an income, your clients can choose between regular (monthly, quarterly, six-monthly, yearly or termly) or ad hoc withdrawals. And our straightforward charging structure means we don’t take entry or exit charges therefore your clients only pay a single monthly product charge. So, from meeting school fees to supplementing their income in retirement, whatever your clients’ needs, the Select Account can hit the right notes.

The Discounted Gift Trust (DGT) option under the Select Account allows your clients to invest a lump sum of money and to receive regular payments from the trust. As these payments utilise the tax deferred withdrawal facility from an investment bond, there is usually no immediate tax liability.

Take a look at our short videos and CPD qualifying events.

Select Account

The CanInvest Select Account offers a simple and straightforward, tax-efficient investment solution for those looking to invest a lump sum and who may have already funded ISAs to the annual maximum.

  • It is set-up as a series of identical policies, providing flexibility when your clients want to take money from the investment.
  • There is unlimited free switching between the funds available allowing you and your client to restructure the investment as required.
  • A comprehensive phased investment facility is available allowing money to be moved between different investment funds over a required period of time.
  • As a life assurance policy, the individual policies can be gifted to other people without a tax charge.

Select Account DGT

The Select Account DGT will appeal to UK investors who want to combine a simple tax-efficient investment and reduce the inheritance tax liability on their estate whilst receiving regular payments to supplement their income.

  • The potential inheritance tax payable on death can be reduced immediately, with a further reduction after the client has survived seven years from the original investment.
  • After death, the value of the trust will be available. Depending on the type of trust used, the trustees can pay these funds out to the chosen beneficiaries or maintain the trust and pay out benefits as and when they choose.
