The potential to beat fixed rate savings...
“The latest version of Investec’s Kick Out Deposit Plan offers a potential 5.75% per year (not compounded), along with capital protection and the opportunity to mature early. The plan will mature early or ‘kick out’ provided the FTSE 100 is higher than its starting value at the end of years 2, 3, 4 or 5 (subject to averaging).
Leading 5 year fixed rate bonds are currently offering businesses around 4.00% per year so this plan offers the potential for an additional return of 1.75% on the basis that if the FTSE is never higher on any of these dates, you will only receive a return of your capital.
The outlook for longer term fixed rates is to remain low and with the possibility of increasing inflation, this plan could be an attractive addition to your savings portfolio. The minimum deposit is £3,000."
