In contrast to insured funds available in the Core and Governed ranges, you can invest directly into a fund with a fund manager via the Extended Range. There is no insurance policy because these are known as ‘non-insured’ funds. However, if a fund manager of a ‘non-insured’ fund were unable to meet claims against them, The Retirement Account trustee would make a claim to the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS). The FSCS may cover a claim of up to £85,000. Note that FSCS compensation is limited to UK authorised funds. Compensation for funds not authorised in the UK will vary according to local regulation.

What are the risks?

The value of investments may go down as well as up. Taking income or withdrawals in excess of fund growth may result in the fund running out quicker than expected. Tax treatment depends on the individual circumstances of each client and may be subject to change in the future. Inflation will reduce how much the Fund is worth in real terms as well how much your income is worth over the years. We recommend seeking advice from a suitably qualified adviser.
