Amid so much uncertainty surrounding the FTSE, we've brought together a choice of investment options to suit your own perspective of where it's going to go next. Oliver Roylance Smith, our head of investments and savings, explains:
"With the recent volatility in the FTSE 100, we give you a selection of investments that cater for all views about its future, whether you think it will go up, down or stay flat.
Investec’s Geared Returns Plan will pay a fixed return of 75% at the end of the term provided the FTSE is higher than its starting value. This plan is therefore an option for those who consider the FTSE will stay around the same value but go up, albeit by only a very small amount.
For those who consider the FTSE may go down, the next decision is between income and growth. Gilliat’s Income Builder offers up to 8.1% per year which is accrued for each week the FTSE remains above 3,000, a level not seen since 1995, and with payments made quarterly, it is an attractive income solution.
Morgan Stanley’s Booster Plan offers a fixed return of 60% at the end of the term provided the FTSE has not gone down by more than 20%. The plan also includes a unique booster feature which allows you to receive a positive return, even if the FTSE falls by up to 50%."
