Global Investor Introduction

Global Investor

Policy Numbers beginning GQ, GA, DQ & DA

Global Investor was originally sold by CMI Insurance Company Limited. It was an offshore single premium, open-architecture portfolio bond. The product was intended as a medium to long-term investment, ideally for 5 years or more. 


Global Investor is no longer open to new investors, but we continue to manage policies for existing customers.


Changing investments

Global Investor allows you to invest into almost any type of asset, with some exceptions. If you are unsure as to whether or not an asset can be held under your policy please contact us. The first 20 dealing transactions each policy year are free (a buy and a sell = 2 transactions). The minimum initial purchase into an asset is £1,000 ($1,500 or €1,500). 


With effect from June 2017 our internal insurance funds are no longer available for switches in. Policyholders already holding an insurance fund can remain invested but cannot switch to another insurance fund. Existing investors can access information such as performance and factsheets via our Fund Centre page. Please note that some funds listed are not available to Hong Kong policyholders. 


If you are switching out of an Offshore With-Profits Fund a market value adjuster (MVA) may apply.
