Barclays Wealth has extended the investment term on its income investment solution.
The investment management experts say that the extension of the Barclays Regular Income Bond term from five to six years will, "enable balanced investors to secure an attractive rate of interest for six years."
As the Bank of England's base rate remains at an all time low of 0.5 per cent for the foreseeable future, the FTSE 100-linked Regular Income Bond offers investors an annual return of 7 per cent, or a monthly return of 0.57 per cent.
Commenting on the popular investment product, Lisa Chaudhuri, manager at Barclays Wealth said: "With savings rates at record lows and dividends being cut with alarming frequency it is not a good environment for investors seeking a regular and dependable stream of income."
Investors' capital that is invested into the Regular Income Bond will be returned in full unless the FTSE 100 falls by more than 50 per cent at any point, and is lower than its starting level at maturity.
Ms Chaudhuri adds: "The Regular Income Bond is designed for those who are prepared to accept a risk to their capital in return for a rate of return 6.5 per cent above the current base rate.
"We think this presents a compelling alternative to some of the more traditional methods of gaining regular income which are not meeting the needs of investors presently."
