Portfolio bonds – a definition

Pryce Warner portfolio bonds are offshore financial tools that can act as a tax efficient wrapper to hold multiple investments in one account. Not only do the bonds act as a tax shield, they also add a life insurance policy to your portfolio, creating a wrapper through which you can buy, sell, assign and manage your investments.

We became clients of PWI after attending an introductory seminar at one of the company ‘Open Days’ in their Paris office a few years ago. Going along to the ‘Open Day’ was one of the best decisions we have ever took. The team in the Private Client Division provides us with excellent service and we are agreeably impressed with the investment performance they have delivered. We are able to access our investment portfolios ‘on line’ and the forward planning we have done to minimise taxes will ensure our children and grandchildren benefit from our assets in the future.Bergerac, France & Oxfordshire UK
