10% each year even if the FTSE only rises by a single point…
With the recent volatility in the markets this could be an uncertain time in the investment climate. If you’re not confident the FTSE 100 will rise significantly, but would like to achieve double digit returns even if it only rises a little, Investec’s recently launched 8 Year Kick Out Plan may be worth a closer look.
The plan has a maximum term of eight years, but will ‘kick out’ provided the level of the FTSE 100 Index at the end of any plan year is higher than its value at the start of the plan (subject to averaging), from year 2 onwards. If it is, then you will receive 10% for each year invested (not compounded), plus your initial investment back.
If the Index is lower at the end of every year, no growth return is achieved and your initial capital is returned in full unless the FTSE 100 has fallen by more than 40% at the end of the plan. If it does your capital will be reduced by 1% for each 1% fall, so there is a risk you could lose some or all of your initial investment.
The six year version of this investment is historically our best selling growth plan and with the opportunity for 10% annual growth, we expect this new eight year plan to be equally as popular.
