    How can F&C help you meet your income goals?

    With savings rates at rock-bottom, you may have to look quite hard to find a competitive income these days. Especially if you have a lump-sum to invest for your retirement, your child’s university fees or simply for a rainy day. Choosing the right option means you can be in a much better position to meet your everyday financial needs in the years ahead.

    • You can choose from a select range of 11 investment trusts, many of which are designed to pay an attractive income
    • You can access these through any of our savings plans, including our stocks and shares ISA, which shelters your money from tax, so there is more of it to potentially grow
    • You can choose whether you’d like to invest abroad, at home or a combination, as well as the type of investment you’d like to include, like equities, bonds and property.
