Opportunities are Infinite
Premium bonds are issued by NS&I where one can gain interest or dividends through the monthly prize draw that one can win (between £25 and £1 million) tax-free. To buy one has to pay at least £25. One can buy it until the maximum level of holding is reached at £50,000.
For the investment of every £1, you get a bond number having a chance to win the lottery prize. The customers can get the prizes directly into the account or they can opt to reinvest in these investment bonds as long as the holdings are below the threshold of £50,000.
In the year 2017, many new changes were made to slash the odds of winning from 30,000:1 to 24,500:1. The prize pot was increased and the number of prizes was raised from 2.4m to 2.9m.
An addition of £100,000 to the prize and the number of beneficiaries for the large sum of cash in premium bonds has also been increased from 9 to 18.
The offer allows you to win tax-free cash through a draw. One can buy the investment bonds for grandchildren or get it as a gift from grandparents.
It does not provide a means to earn a regular income and it doesn’t guarantee a return. It may not be suitable for people who are concerned about the impact of inflation but there is a small chance of earning very high tax-free returns.
One may not be able to earn regularly and may get only a small percent of the investment unless you can get the bigger prize which is very rare. Otherwise, the earnings are as per inflation and the investment does not grow fast.
Currently, it offers an annual rate of 1.4% and this can be attractive in conditions when most of the other types are not delivering higher rates. FTSE 250 has a strong record of giving higher returns.
The money invested in FTSE can provide more than double in 9 years and the same may take half a decade to give double the amount in 50 years in bonds but investors who are not aware of the risks of markets or those searching for long term secure investments in diverse options, can select it.
For children below the age of 16 such investment bonds can be managed by the guardians and the paperwork or payment is sent to the guardian.
Since November 2019, the sale was made through post offices and a press conference was held by the chairman of NSC to launch the new form of saving.
Since most types of savings are conventional no real progress has been made in the treasury and the total invested amount remains stuck at £6Kmil.
The analysts believe the countrymen should make more savings and the new issues were launched were the key attraction was the chance of winning £1K.
The premium bond should be held for a minimum of 6 months and those who buy will have a chance to participate in the draw of the results of the premium bond, which will be held next year, whereas, those who invest in December can get a chance to participate in the draw in June.
