Unitised with profit endowmentUnitised with profit endowment
This is a hybrid unit-linked endowment, designed to smooth out price fluctuations that occur with unit-linked policies. The value of units is declared each year and that value is then guaranteed. The guaranteed value that is declared is at a discount to the actual value of the units. The guaranteed value will not reach the real value until the term of the endowment is up, so the chance of being able to pay of the loan early is minimised.
Non profit endowmentNon profit endowment
This type of endowment guarantees repayment of the loan. There are no annual or final bonuses and you generally have no chance of a cash surplus on maturity. Essentially, there is no benefit other than life cover which is eaqual to the value of the mortgage you have ttaken out. This is seen as an inefficient method of saving the money to pay back and is therefore rarely recommended as a method of repaying a mortgage.

The gross profit of a company (total turnover of products sold less costs to purchase or manufacture) less all other expenses.

In company accounts, the word 'net' is often dropped, so that you simply have 'Profit before tax' and Profit after tax'.
