White Christmas offers boost to Bristol & West investors

23 December 2004
An extra £700,000 will be handed out to investors at Bristol & West, if it snows on Christmas day.

Investors in the organisation's Guaranteed Equity Bond, who took it out in October and November, will get Marks and Spencer shopping vouchers worth one per cent of their investment if snow falls at Heathrow Airport tomorrow.

Nick Pagon, senior product manager at Bristol & West, said: “With the odds on a white Christmas getting shorter, our customers will be looking skywards with eager anticipation.

"We are always looking for ways to make our products more interesting, and this is a great seasonal offer for our savers."

The extra snow-bonus does not affect the wider performance of the investment bond, the bank added.

Bristol & West estimate that, if it does snow, it will pay out around £700,000 to around 7,000 customers.
