This is a 6 year 2 week Deposit Plan linked to the performance of the FTSE 100 Index and Eurostoxx 50 Index. The Deposit Plan is constructed to offer a potential return of 7.50% p.a. If on any annual observation date (including the Final Observation date), starting at Year 4, if both Underlying Indices are at or above their Initial Strike Level, the investment will kick out. Initial capital plus the coupon for each annual period which has elapsed is paid and the investment will end. If the investment does not kick out, then at the Final Observation date full capital is returned. The opportunity for full capital protection and growth is the key aim of this investment.

The investment is linked to the FTSE 100 Index and Eurostoxx 50 Index (see page 6 of the Brochure for full details) and investors will benefit from growth or even flat market conditions.

The initial investment into the Deposit Plan, minus any initial adviser fee, will be returned in full at maturity.

Don’t Forget the Risks

As with all forms of investment there are risks involved. Some plans do not guarantee to repay the money invested. The potential returns of the plans and repaying the money invested are linked to the level of the stock market and also depend on the financial stability of the Issuer and Counterparty Bank.

Past performance is not a guide to future performance and may not be repeated.  Investment involves risk. The performance data does not take account of the commissions and costs incurred on the issue and redemption of shares. The value of investments and the income from them may go down as well as up and investors may not get back any of the amount originally invested. Because of this, an investor is not certain to make a profit on an investment and may lose money. Exchange rate changes may cause the value of overseas investments to rise or fall.

The promotion of the plans does not constitute ‘advice’ to invest. Advice is always specific to an individual investor’s circumstances and needs, following the process of ‘know your customer’, with the aim of ensuring that any product is suitable for an investor.

As always, the recommendation and common sense approach is to consider product solutions as a portfolio, never over-exposing oneself to a point of financial pain and suffering liquidity or counterparty over exposure.

At the Best Price FS price point the iDAD Plans are certainly worthy of consideration for inclusion within investment portfolios.

Warmest Regards.
