It is a single premium, whole of life policy and can be applied for by individual or joint applicants and has a death benefit of 101% of the value of the bond.

The product is aimed at the English-speaking expat market in France.

Peter Kenny, CEO, Quilter International said: "After listening to our European adviser community, we realised there was widespread demand for a French compliant product for English-speaking expats in the country."

"An estimated one in three French residents own a life assurance product and there are approximately 150,000 UK expats living in France, illustrating that there is a large market with a clear need for a product like this."

Kenny added: "The product enables customers to access a wide range of investment opportunities and is portable suiting internationally mobile expats. Similarly, clients benefit from simple tax reporting, improved intergenerational wealth planning options and tax efficiencies."
