13% potential growth returns on your investments

The opportunity for 13% annual returns…
“The current economic climate is a challenging one when deciding which way the FTSE 100 might go. However, provided you think the index could be higher by just 1 point in the coming years, the Enhanced Kick Out plan from Investec provides a compelling opportunity.
Should the value of the FTSE at the end of years 1 to 4 be higher than the value at the start of the plan, this investment will return 13% for each year it has been in place (not compounded). All other similar investments with a potential return from year 1 are currently offering much lower rates.
Your capital is at risk if the FTSE falls by more than 50% during the 5 year investment term and finishes below its starting value – arguably a fair trade-off for the potential upside and with high growth stories a rare thing of late, this investment certainly demands a closer look.”

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.
