Mariana have launched an Income Plan (There are very few quality plans available to investors who require ”Income”)

Take a look at the plans shape:

Mariana FTSE Defensive Income Kick Out Plan – July 2019


This is a ten year plan based on the performance of the FTSE™ 100 Index, the underlying. The plan is constructed to offer a potential income of 1.575% per quarter providing the closing price of the underlying is at or above 75% of the start level on a quarterly observation date. If the closing price of the underlying is below 75% of the start level on a quarterly observation date, no income is paid for that quarter and the income for that period is permanently lost.

Investors will only receive the quarterly potential income if the income criteria is fulfilled on a quarterly observation date. To note, if, on every one of the quarterly observation dates the income criteria is not fulfilled, investors will receive no potential income throughout the term of the plan.


The plan has the possibility to kick out from the end of year 2 and quarterly thereafter. Should the closing price of the underlying be at or above 105% of the start level on any one of the kick out observation dates, the plan will mature early paying the potential income for that quarter and returning initial capital in full (subject to counterparty risk).


If the plan has not already kicked out, initial capital will be returned in full at the end of the plan’s term if on the maturity date (19 July 2029) the finish level of the underlying is not more than 35% below the start level.


Investors are at risk of losing your capital if the closing price of the underlying is less than 65% of the start level (representing a decline of more than 35% from the start level), investors initial capital will be lost at a rate of 1% for every 1% the closing price of the underlying is below the start level.
