We invest in a range of different assets with the aim of providing a higher return in the medium to long-term than is achievable with a bank or building society account. Sheffield Mutual's with-profits fund is managed to provide a low to medium risk investment, appealing to anyone with a more cautious approach to investment. Our investments include property, shares of UK companies, government gilts, corporate bonds, commercial mortgages and cash.
The proportion held in each of these will vary depending on market conditions. You'll be pleased to know that we seek to adopt an ethical approach to investing and it is our policy not to invest knowingly or directly in industries relating to armaments, tobacco, gambling or pornography.
Unlike stocks & shares ISAs that are invested directly in shares or in a share-tracking index, the money you invest in our Investment ISA will not normally fluctuate from day to day. However, should you wish to close, transfer or withdraw funds from your ISA during adverse investment conditions, the Society may apply a Market Value Reduction to the policy fund, which could, in some circumstances, result in you receiving back less than you have paid in. Therefore the amount you will receive on repayment is not guaranteed.
