For a limited period, customers who opt to invest in a new Mapfre MSV Life Investment Bond or top-up an existent one will see their investment being topped up with an additional 1% thanks to Mapfre MSV Life.
The Mapfre MSV Life Investment Bond is a unique hybrid product which combines ‘Unit-Linked’ and ‘With Profits’ methods of investing to cater for the investors’ different needs and preferences.
The value of the Unit-Linked part is based on the performance of several underlying investments. Investors can choose from over fifty funds, ranging from bond funds to equity funds, and with a choice to invest by geographic location or by industry. The choice gives flexibility which revolves around preference and risk tolerance. Funds are managed by renowned fund houses like Fidelity, BOV Asset Management, Vilhena, Invesco and Blackrock.
Investors may choose up to ten funds within the Mapfre MSV Life Investment Bond. This gives a remarkable amount of diversification, which is very important for any portfolio. Such diversification helps to spread the risk on various investments, thus reducing the impact of the performance of any single security.
The ‘With Profits’ option, is based on a fund managed by Mapfre MSV Life. Up to 50% of the Investment Bond may be invested in the With Profits’ fund to provide an element of stability on investment. This is arguably the special feature of the Mapfre MSV Life Investment Bond. It allows the investor to take advantage of the markets on part of the investment, while putting their mind at rest on the remaining sum. Choosing the ‘with profits’ option, allows the investor to withdraw regular bonuses, when declared.
