Potential high growth returns and capital protection…
If capital protection is a top priority when considering your options, the chances are the returns on your savings have reduced significantly in recent years, which is where Investec’s FTSE 100 6 Year Deposit Plan could offer an alternative.
The plan will pay a fixed return of 19.5% provided the FTSE 100 Index at the end of the term is higher than its value at the start of the plan (subject to averaging). As with other deposits your capital is also eligible for FSCS protection but if the Index is lower, you will only get your initial capital back.
By linking your return to the stock market, it is not guaranteed as it would be with a fixed rate bond. However, if the plan does provide the fixed return, it is equivalent to around 3.01% per year (compound), which is considerably higher than other deposit based options.
Important Information: This is a structured deposit plan and is capital protected. 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 this event you may be entitled to compensation from the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS), depending on your individual circumstances. In addition, you may not get back the full amount of your initial investment if the plan is not held for the full term.
