5 x FTSE growth - potential returns of up to 100%

5 x FTSE growth - potential returns of up to 100%

10 May 2012 / by Oliver Roylance-Smith

"If you think the FTSE will rise over the medium term then this plan could be just for you. The Best Entry plan from Morgan Stanley offers a return of 5 x any rise in the FTSE 100 Index with a maximum return of 100% - this means that if the FTSE has risen by 20% of more over the 6 year investment term, you would double your money.

The value which is used to compare the performance also has the advantage of being the lowest weekly value of the FTSE as measured during the first quarter of the plan – the ‘Best Entry’. The plan also contains conditional capital protection which means that unless the FTSE falls by 50% or more, you will receive a return of your original capital. This is measured at maturity only, rather than throughout the investment term.

This combination of capital at risk and the potential for enhanced returns creates a compelling investment plan."

This is a structured investment plan that is not capital protected and is not covered by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS) for default alone. There is a risk of losing some or all of your initial investment due to the performance of the FTSE 100 Index.

There is a risk that the company backing the plan or any company associated with the plan may be unable to repay your initial investment and any returns stated. In addition, you may not get back the full amount of your initial investment if the plan is not held for the full term. The past performance of the FTSE 100 Index is not a guide to its future performance.

If you are at all unsure of the suitability of this type of investment, both in respect of its objectives and its risk profile, you should seek independent financial advice.
