Further Information

The FTSE 100 5 Year Defensive Deposit Plan 8 is designed to repay your initial deposit and deliver a return if the FTSE 100 is higher than 95% of its starting level, at the end of the 5 year Plan Term.

20% return if the FTSE 100 is higher than 95% of its starting level after 5 years.

If at the end of year 5 the FTSE 100 is equal to or lower than 95% of its starting level you will receive back your initial deposit with no return.

Therefore, this Plan has been designed for clients who are looking for alternatives to fixed rate cash products in order to achieve capital growth over a 5 year term. They do not wish to risk losing their initial deposit and therefore the product is aimed at those who have a relatively low attitude to risk. Clients may be looking for equity-linked returns and expect moderate growth in the market.
