FTSE 100 Super tracker Investment Plan: New Launch
Potential for either 10.2% pa or for high growth returns of 4x FTSE 100 growth at end of term
Do you think the FTSE 100 Index could be higher in six years’ time?
One of the key features of a ‘Super tracker’ investment plan is that if the FTSE 100 does go up, the growth you receive is based on a multiple of any rise in the Index. These types of plan also include conditional capital protection, which means provided the FTSE does not fall by more than a certain percentage, you will receive a return of your initial investment – and so investors get a defined return, for a defined level of risk.
Commenting on the plan, Oliver Roylance-Smith, head of savings and investments at Fair Investment Company, said: “You know at the start of the plan that you will only lose money if the FTSE 100 has fallen by more than 40% in six years’ time. Whilst you also know at the start that if the FTSE 100 rises, you will receive four times any growth, or alternatively a return equivalent to 10.2 % pa. This latest launch is a welcome addition to the range of plans currently available, and offers a compelling balance of risk versus reward.”
This plan also contains a feature which means it can be ended early each month, from the end of year 1 onwards. Should this happen, you will receive 0.85% for each month invested, along with a return of your initial capital.
If the plan is not called early, and the FTSE is lower at the end of the term, no growth is achieved. At that point your initial capital will be returned in full, unless the Index has fallen by more than 40%. If it has, your capital will be reduced by 1% for each 1% fall, so your capital is at risk.
The plan has a minimum investment of £10,000, and you can invest in and outside of an ISA.
