Growth Investment Opportunity – Potential 20.5% Return In 2 Years

The Enhanced Kick Out Plan from Investec is our best-selling growth investment, and with the current version offering the potential for double digit returns in as little as 12 months, there’s every chance it will retain this top spot for the foreseeable.

The plan offers 10.25% for each year invested (not compounded), provided the value of the FTSE 100 Index at the end of each year is higher than its value at the start of the plan.

For example:

If this happens at the end of year 2, you would receive your initial capital back along with a 20.50% growth return.

Should the FTSE be lower, the investment continues to the next year. If the plan fails to provide a return, your capital is at risk if the FTSE has fallen by more than 40% at the end of the full term. If it has, your initial capital is reduced by 1% for each 1% fall. You could therefore lose some of all of your initial investment.

So if you’re looking for the opportunity for high growth returns, and are prepared to accept your capital is at risk if the FTSE falls by more than 40%, this plan is likely to appeal to a wide range of investors.”

In addition, you may not get back the full amount of your initial investment if the plan is not held for the full term.
