Barclays Wealth has announced the reissue of its three mainstay structured investment products.
Launching this week, the Minimum Return Plan, UK Super Tracker and Regular Income Bond offer investors some certainty of outcome as the FTSE remains unstable.
The Minimum Return Plan is a six-year investment that offers a fixed return of 15 per cent, plus an extra 10 per cent at maturity, providing that the FTSE 100 has never fallen below 60 per cent of its strike level.
On top of this, investors can now gain an extra 10 per cent if the FTSE has never fallen below 80 per cent of its strike level.
Also re-launching is the five year Super Tracker, which offers investors returns of three times the first 24 per cent rise in the FTSE 100, up to a maximum of 72 per cent. The three year version offers three times the first 10 per cent rise, up to a maximum of 30 per cent.
Finally, the Barclays Regular Income Bond, which is linked to the FTSE 100, offers investors an annual income of 6.25 per cent, or a monthly income of 0.51 per cent.
As with the Super Tracker, investors' capital is fully protected unless the index falls by more than 50 per cent from its starting level and remains lower than its starting level at maturity. If this does occur, capital will be lost on a 1:1 basis.
Commenting on the re-launch, Lisa Chaudhuri, manager at Barclays Wealth said: "With no consensus view on the future direction of the FTSE 100 there is a clear demand for products which can offer some certainty of outcome while at the same time providing some protection to capital.
"Our latest issues have been designed to offer investors different ways to gain exposure to the market according to their outlook, attitude to risk and portfolio requirements."
