Approved Retirement Funds (ARFs)


ARF Builder is a unique service from Wealth Options that allows you to provide a self administered Approved Retirement Fund (ARF) and one-off investment products that the ARF can purchase, to your clients.

A self administered ARF is similar in nature to a small self administered pension scheme where you can effectively give your client control over their ARF investment. A self administered ARF can invest in a range of asset classes such as capital secure structured products, direct equity holdings, government and corporate bonds, insurance funds and property investment options.

It is suitable for the self employed, 5% + Company Directors and AVC Contributors. We have a competitive charging structure, and typically our self administered ARF costs a third less than traditional life company products.
