50% potential growth for the new cash ISA allowance

50% potential growth for the new cash ISA allowance

13 April 2012 / by Oliver Roylance-Smith

"With longer term fixed rates only offering around 4.5%, finding an attractive return for your hard earned savings can be a challenge.

The Growth Deposit Bond from Legal & General offers a competitive alternative by combining the potential upside of stock market linked returns with capital protection provided by the Royal Bank of Scotland.

This plan will return 100% of any rise in the FTSE 100 (capped at 50% of your original investment) with a minimum return of 7.25% whatever happens. So if you think the FTSE will go up in the medium term, this plan offers a real opportunity to enhance the returns from your savings.

With the new ISA allowance of £5,640 available right now, why wait to start receiving the benefits of tax free growth. The plan also accepts cash ISA transfers and non-ISA deposits."
