Past performance is not a reliable indicator of future performance.

In the retail financial services market, CLL continues to build the confidence of financial advisers and direct investors.

Increasing uncertainty about the proposed changes to concessional and non-concessional contributions to superannuation has increased the appeal of investment bonds as a supplement to superannuation savings.

The bonds are internally taxed at a maximum rate of 30 per cent, and no personal tax is paid on withdrawals after 10 years.

We remain focused on building long-term, sustainable relationships in the retail advice market and to position the Investment Bond Division as the investment bond provider of choice for third party distributors, financial advisors and direct investors.
