Barclays Wealth Defined Returns Plans re-launched

10 August 2009 / by Andy Davies

Barclays Wealth has reissued its Defined Returns Plans as consumer demand increases for fixed rate investments.

The Barclays Defined Returns Plan is a Capital Protected form of investment and offers three options to investors.

Investors can choose to invest in a three year option which provides a return of 15 per cent, a four year option with a 26 per cent return or a five year option which provides a 40 per cent return.

Each option will deliver these set returns so long as the FTSE 100 is at or above its starting level at maturity.

At maturity, irrespective of the performance of the FTSE 100, investors will receive their minimum investment.

Lisa Chaudhuri, manager of Barclays Wealth, believe Defined Return Plans have become a more popular form of investment because of the current economic climate, she said:

"While markets may have become less volatile in recent weeks, the mixed economic picture means a great deal of uncertainty remains and investors are wary of assuming too much risk.

"As a result of this we continue to see high demand for investments offering both the prospect of a fixed return and full or partial capital protection, such as our Defined Returns investments which have been specifically designed to offer investors a range of options to suit their risk profile and investment horizons."
