Wealth Management Portfolio
Our Wealth Management Portfolio offers your clients a virtually tax-free way to grow an investment. It also gives your clients control over when they access their money, how much tax they pay and when. And, if your client has Aegon Retirement Choices, they can invest in Wealth Management Portfolio through it too.
- A wide range of assets for a truly flexible investment strategy
- Virtually tax-free growth
- Tax deferral means ability to control the timing and amount of any future tax liability
- Clients can switch between assets without triggering capital gains tax liability
- Access to money (take up to 5% in withdrawals yearly with no immediate tax liability – based on original premium and up to 20 years)
- European portability option – ideal if your client is considering moving to France, Italy or Spain and looking to continue to benefit from a tax-efficient product, with effective income tax deferral
The value of an investment can fall as well as rise for a number of reasons, for example market and currency movements. Your client may get back less than originally invested.
We have a wide choice of funds with enormous flexibility. This range means your clients can meet their short and long-term investment objectives tax efficiently – in line with the risk level they're comfortable with.

- Open-ended Investment Companies (OEICs)
- Certain non-UK Collective Investment Schemes, acceptable under the UK personal portfolio bond tax rules

Placing it in trust
We have a range of trust options to help your clients reduce or mitigate inheritance tax bills, ensuring their money goes where it’s intended after their death or during their lifetime. Using a bond in the appropriate trust can generate an immediate reduction in your client’s potential IHT liability. Read more about Aegon's trust options
Trusts generally don't allow access to the money in them, however to help with inheritance tax planning our wide range includes trusts with some of the following features:
- Access to original capital through fixed payments from the trust
- Access to their original capital for life
- Ad hoc access to their original capital as required.
Making sure your clients have all the options they need, we have two primary sets of trusts.
Bare Trusts – for your clients who are happy to name beneficiaries at the policy’s outset.
Discretionary Trusts – for your clients who need more flexibility over future beneficiaries.
