New Investment Plan – 8% pa even if FTSE 100 Falls By 8%

…with a 6 month early maturity feature.

This new investment plan launch has a maximum term of 8 years, but will mature early (‘kick out’) at the end of each six month period (from year 2 onwards), provided the FTSE has not fallen more than 8% below its value at the start of the plan. If it kicks outs, you receive 4% for each six month period invested – equivalent to 8% per year (not compounded) – along with a return of your initial investment.

If the Index has fallen more than 8% at the end of each six months, no investment growth is paid, and your initial capital is returned in full unless the Index has fallen by more than 40% at the end of plan. If it has, your capital will be reduced by 1% for each 1% fall, and so your capital is at risk.

For those investors who are not convinced the FTSE will rise significantly in the coming years, this defensive investment could offer a competitive balance of risk versus reward.”
