The Expected Growth Rate (EGR) is an indication of how we expect the funds to perform over the year. The EGR is not guaranteed and is not the rate your clients will receive. The rate applied to your clients' PruFund Investment Plan is based on the fund(s) they invested in and the EGR after charges are deducted (as shown in the table above).

The Expected Growth Rates for the funds can be found on www.pru.co.uk, these are reviewed at the end of each quarter and are not guaranteed. The rate applied to your client's investment is determined by their fund choice and whether or not they take regular withdrawals.

The rates shown assume an initial investment of £20,000 - an additional charge is made for lower amounts. Please remember that your client's plan is designed as a longer-term investment and that an Early Cash-In Charge may be applied on any withdrawals (not including regular withdrawals).

Your clients may be further taxed when they cash in their plan - our Taxation of Bonds leaflet gives further information, and is available on www.pruifa.co.uk. Full terms and conditions of the PruFund Investment Plan are available on request. The value of your client's plan may fluctuate and there could be times when they may not get back the full amount of their original investment - it will depend on the value of the underlying investments and our formula that helps reduce volatility.
