13% each year even if the FTSE only rises by a small amount
15 June 2012 / by Oliver Roylance-Smith
Will the FTSE go up?
“If the FTSE 100 increased by 1% over a year and yet the growth you received from your investment was 13%, most of us would agree that this would be an attractive return. Well this is exactly the opportunity offered by the Enhanced Kick Out Plan from Investec.
This investment will mature early or ‘kick out’ provided the value of the FTSE at the end of years one to four is higher than its value at the start of the plan. The trade off for such a high return is that if the FTSE should fall by more than 50% during the investment term as well as finish below its starting value, your capital will be at risk.
Balanced with the combination of high growth potential and the ability to mature early, this plan makes for a compelling investment opportunity.”

This is a structured investment plan that is not capital protected and is not covered by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS) for default alone. There is a risk of losing some or all of your initial investment due to the performance of the FTSE 100 Index.
There is a risk that the company backing the plan or any company associated with the plan may be unable to repay your initial investment and any returns stated. In addition, you may not get back the full amount of your initial investment if the plan is not held for the full term.
If you are at all unsure of the suitability of this type of investment, both in respect of its objectives and its risk profile, you should seek independent financial advice.
