Banking News 17percent After 3 Years Provided The FTSE Goes Up Capital Protected 18471829
17% after 3 years provided the FTSE goes up, capital protected
15 June 2012 / by Oliver Roylance-Smith
That equates to 5.37% per year…
“With most 3 year fixed rates only offering around 4%, the opportunity to return 5.37% a year is certainly worth a closer look. The trade off for such a high return is that the FTSE needs to finish higher at the end of the three years than its starting value (subject to averaging).
So if you think the FTSE will rise in the next few years and want to gain a higher return on your business savings than is available through fixed rate bonds, this is a compelling alternative.”
