pensioner bonds, basset and gold pensioner bonds, pensioner bond

The Fixed Income Pensioner Bonds are a unique investment opportunity offered exclusively to investors who are aged 55+ who are looking to generate a predictable and ongoing cash flow from their savings that is paid directly into their bank accounts. Pensioner Bonds are offered for an initial fixed term of one year that can be renewed up to a maximum term of five years. Investors can choose between the Monthly Income Pensioner Bond that pays 4.24% p.a. in equal monthly payments directly to their bank account OR the compounding Pensioner Bond that pays 4.32% AAR once a year. Interest rates are fixed at the applicable rate and will remain so until the end of the bond term.

Interest Shield: The interest rate of our Pensioner Bonds tracks Bank of England interest rate increases, taking effect from the date of issue. The unique feature of this product is that it will not track Bank of England interest rate reductions. Find out more about this bond's “High Water Mark” feature today.

Fixed Income Pensioner Bonds were designed by Basset & Gold to be a simple and straightforward investment for investors aged 55+ who are looking to utilise their savings without depleting them. Bondholders lend the company money in return for a fixed rate of interest that remains the same throughout the term of the bond: 4.24% p.a. for the Pensioner Bond that pays monthly, and 4.32% AAR for the Pensioner Bond that pays annually. 

Investment Amount – For this bond, the minimum investment is £1,000 and the maximum is £500,000.

Attractive Interest Rates – The Fixed Income Pensioner Bonds are offered in two payment terms: monthly interest payments at 4.24% p.a. and annual interest at 4.32% AAR.

Interest Payments – Interest is paid either monthly or annually, depending on the bond selected. The interest rate will remain the same for the duration of the initial period AND for all subsequent extensions.

Terminal Illness Clause – In the unfortunate event that you are terminally ill, you are able to redeem your investment before the end of the term with 90-days' notice without any fees or charges.

No Fees – You are not charged any fees or charges.

100% Capital Returned – In addition to your monthly interest payments, your entire investment capital is repaid at the end of the bond term.

The Pensioner Bonds were designed for investors who are looking to maximise their savings yet are unable to commit to long periods of time.
