High interest: 5% per year, even if the FTSE falls up to 25%…
With everything that has happened over the last year, plans that offer high interest are proving hard to come by, especially those that offer regular payments. Which is why this plan from MB Structured Investments should be appealing to investors.
The UK Quarterly Contingent Income Plan will pay 1.25% at the end of each quarter, provided the FTSE 100 Index has not fallen more than 25% below its level at the start of the plan – that’s a potential 5% interest per year. If the Index does close below this level, no interest is paid for that quarter.
The plan has a maximum term of 6 years, but also offers the opportunity to receive your initial capital back in full before then if the FTSE is at or above its initial level at the end of each quarter (from year 1 onwards). If the plan does not end early, your initial capital is returned in full provided the FTSE has not fallen by more than 35% at the end of the plan term. If it has, your initial investment will be reduced by 1% for each 1% fall, so your capital is at risk.
If the opportunity for high interest even if the FTSE goes down, quarterly payments, and some protection of your capital sounds appealing, this plan might be worth a closer look.
Potential quarterly income: 1.25% (equivalent to 5% annually) if the Index doesn’t fall by more than 25%
