The value of investments (and any income received from them) can fall as well as rise and you may not get back what you invested. For some investments this can also happen as a result of exchange rate fluctuations as shares and funds may have an exposure to overseas markets.

Any investment should be considered as a medium to long-term investment, that is, it should be held for at least five years.

For products which have a fixed term, you may get back significantly less than you paid in if you make early withdrawals.

The value of the tax benefits depends on your individual circumstances. Tax rules may change in the future.
