New Ethical plan: Invest responsibly, without sacrificing your potential return…
The Investec FTSE4Good Plan is offering 15.9% if the FTSE4Good UK 50 Index is higher at maturity than at its starting level. As with other cash deposits, your capital is also eligible for FSCS protection.
The FTSE4Good UK 50 Index is linked to the performance of the 50 largest companies listed on the London Stock Exchange which also demonstrate strong Environmental, Social and Governance practises. The stocks that make up the FTSE4Good UK 50 Index generally also feature in the FTSE 100 Index, since both indices track the shares of the largest companies listed on the London Stock Exchange.
The 15.9% return is equivalent to 2.65% per year (not compounded), which is significantly higher than any other cash based product. The downside is that the return is not guaranteed, so if the FTSE4Good UK 50 Index ends lower, you only get your initial capital back.
This plan gives investors comfort that ‘doing the right thing’ doesn’t necessarily mean sacrificing return potential, so if ethical investing is an important issue for you, this plan could be worth a closer look.
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.
