Further Information

The Dual Index Defensive Income Kick Out Plan April 2018 is a ten year Plan based on the performance of the FTSE100 Index and Russell 2000 Index, the Underlyings.

The Plan is constructed to offer a Potential Income of % per quarter providing the Closing Price of both the Underlyings is at or above 75% of the Start Level on each quarterly Observation Date. If the Closing Price of any one of the Underlyings is below 75% of the Start Level on a quarterly Observation Date, no income is paid for that quarter.

The Plan has the possibility to kick out from the end of year 2 and quarterly thereafter. Should the Closing Price of both the Underlyings 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 the Finish Level of the worst performing Underlying is not more than 40% below the Start Level.

Therefore, This Plan has been designed for clients who are looking for a high level of income over a 6 year period, where the level of income is known and can be budgeted for, perhaps to meet living expenses.

It is aimed at clients who may be cash rich but income poor. As the capital is at risk, it is suited to those clients who are willing to take a risk on capital return in order to receive a higher level of income than could otherwise be achieved from cash products, and therefore are likely to have a medium attitude to risk or higher.
