Premiere Europe Account

A comprehensive solution for investors

The award-winning Premiere Europe Account from Canada Life International Assurance (Ireland) is an investment bond offering a wide range of investment options in one place. It combines this with the tax efficiency of investing through an EU-based provider in Ireland, where the underlying investment can grow free of any UK tax, with any personal taxation usually being deferred until any profits are brought back to the UK.

Working with your professional advisers you are able to construct a portfolio using a combination of funds, cash deposits, investment platforms and discretionary managers. This utilises Canada Life International Assurance (Ireland)’s expertise and relationships with other investment providers to offer a competitive, comprehensive solution.

The Account can be linked to one or more lives assured or be written over a fixed term of 99 years.

  • The tax efficient growth of an investment based in Ireland, for UK residents, means that any growth in the Account is not subject to UK tax, although UK tax it may apply when any profit is brought back into the UK.

  • It is set-up as a series of identical policies, providing flexibility when you want to take money from the investment.

  • The Account can be denominated in Sterling, US Dollars or Euros – this can be an advantage if you are planning to move abroad and want to reduce the effect of changes in exchange rates.

  • Beneficial VAT on any fees payable to discretionary investment managers.

  • You or your professional adviser can change the underlying investments at any time without a tax charge.

  • Flexibility, as individual policies can be gifted to new owners without a tax charge.

  • For trustees, it can offer an easy method of investing.

The Account is true open architecture – this means that almost any collective fund from around the world can be used, as can cash deposits, investment platforms or discretionary investment managers.

It is possible to use multiple funds, platforms and discretionary managers and the investments can be changed at any time.

The value of investments can fall as well as rise and you should speak to a professional adviser to ensure that any investment is suitable for you.

The Premiere Europe Account will appeal to UK resident investors with at least £50,000 to invest who are looking for a comprehensive range of investment options, with beneficial treatment for discretionary investment managers.
