Regular and Annual Bonuses

On this page you'll find the Regular and Annual Bonuses that have been added to our range of With-Profits investments from 1 April 2021 (unless otherwise stated below).

These rates don't include any Final/Terminal or Additional Bonuses that may apply. Please see the relevant Key Features Document for more information on how the bonus is applied.

We can’t predict the future. Past performance isn't a guide to future performance. For investments in the With-Profits Funds, the value of the Policy depends on how much profit the Funds make and how we decide to distribute it. The rate of future bonuses can't be guaranteed.

Full terms and conditions of all products are available on request from Prudential, Lancing, BN15 8GB.
