2. Our market leading expertise
The Prudential Group has been helping people plan for their future for over 160 years. Its size and experience puts it in a strong position to invest customers' money wisely for the medium to long term. The Prudential Group has around 500 investment professionals across the world, centrally co-ordinated by the Portfolio Management Group (PMG), which is responsible for high level investment decisions and managing investment risk.
3. Our support
We take customer service very seriously and aim to provide the quality you would expect from a name such as Prudential. We're also a member of the Association of International Life Offices (AILO), a trade organisation which aims to encourage professionalism and high standards amongst its members.
4. Our tax efficient location
We're based in Dublin, Ireland and therefore no income or capital gains tax is paid on investment income with the exception of some withholding tax. This can result in a potentially higher return than investing in UK-based funds.
5. Our unique product
Our International Prudence Bond is a medium to long term bond designed with the needs of international investors in mind. It's tailored to each market and sold via professional Independent Financial Advisers.
