Important information

*If you withdraw your investment, the amount you receive back is likely to be less than the amount you invested. You will receive an amount equal to the value, at the time you make the withdrawal, of any remaining payments and capital to the end of the fixed term. This will be calculated by allowing for the costs of setting up the investment and will use an interest rate based on rates prevailing at the time you invested and when you withdraw your investment.
