Popular Defensive Plan: potential 5% per year growth, even if the FTSE falls by 15% over five years…
Defensive investments normally offer the potential for growth, even if the market goes down slightly, and this investment from MB Structured Investments could be very attractive.
This plan will ‘kick out’ and return your initial capital plus 5% for each year invested (not compounded), provided the level of the FTSE 100 Index is above the required level at the end of each year. The required level is 105% of its starting value at the end of year 1, reducing by 5% every year over the 5 year term, down to 85% in the final year. So the plan could offer 5% annual returns, even if the FTSE falls by 15% at the end of the term.
If the FTSE is below the required level each year, no growth is achieved and your original capital will be returned, unless the FTSE 100 Index has fallen by more than 35% at the end of your investment. If it has, your initial capital will be reduced by 1% for each 1% fall, so you could lose some or all of your initial investment.
Depending on your views of what might happen to the FTSE in the coming years, this plan offers the opportunity for investment level returns, even if the market goes down slightly.
