Choose Meaningful gifts this festive season

In a world brimming with opportunities, few gifts can match the enduring power of education.

The meaningful gift of an Education Bond will last a lifetime, supporting for your children to provide your grandchildren with a good education, is building the foundation of a bright future. Making education accessible to future generations represents an opportunity to create a lasting and meaningful, non-contestable legacy. Growing an investment that your family can access in the future, without hefty taxation, is a savvy way to support the transition of wealth across generations. An education bond is non-distributing: it works by compounding earnings. This means that the bond does not generate taxable income that might impact your ‘income test’ and can be held in a Family Trust.

Case Study: An investment in the brightest future possible

Simon and Jenny have recently retired with a decent superannuation balance. Their elder son, Pete, and his wife Trudy have two children, Abigail and Alyssa, and they see how hard their son and daughter-in-law work to provide for the girls. Simon and Jenny want to help make sure that their grandchildren have access to the same quality education that their boys had, and that money for their schooling doesn’t end up being absorbed by the family budget. They know the importance of saving money and feel that establishing an education bond with a lump sum contribution will encourage Pete & Trudy to also put money aside while the girls are young. They do also worry that if the money goes straight to Pete and Trudy, and their marriage didn’t work out, it would become part of a settlement and might not be used for the girls education. An education bond has given Simon and Jenny certainty about how the money they’ve provided will be spent. Because Abigail and Alyssa are both pre-school age, the 10-year investment term is ideal.

They have also benefited from:

• No cap to the start-up investment amount

• Tax paid inside the fund

• Multiple people being able to contribute to the bond

• Being able to access their capital investment at any time if they need to, with no tax penalties
