Further Information

The Plan is designed to repay your initial investment and deliver a return dependent on the performance of the FTSE 100.

Potential for maturity at the end of years 2, 3, 4, 5 or 6 with a payment equal to 6.55% per annum (not compounded) if the five-day average closing level of the FTSE 100 is higher than a specified percentage of the Initial Index Level. The specified levels are 100% of the Initial Index Level in year 2 and reduces by 5% per annum to 80% in year 6.

The Reference Levels are as follows: year 2 at 100%; year 3 at 95%; year 4 at 90%; year 5 at 85% and year 6 (Final Level) at 80%

If the Plan continues to the end of year 6, the closing levels of the FTSE 100 are used to calculate the Final Index Level, as explained below:

  • If the Final Index Level is higher than 80% of the Initial Index Level, you will receive back your initial investment plus 39.3%.
  • If the Plan runs for the full 6 years and the Final Index Level is equal to or lower than 80% of the Initial Index Level but is equal to or higher than 60% of the Initial Index Level, you will receive back your initial investment with no return.
  • If the Final Index Level is equal to or lower than 80% of the Initial Index Level and the FTSE 100 has fallen by more than 60% from the Initial Index Level during the Observation Period, then your initial investment will be reduced by 1% for every 1% fall (including partial percentages) in the FTSE 100.

This Plan has been designed for clients who are looking for equity-linked returns over a 6 year period, but can accommodate receiving their money back before the end of the term. The payoff profile has been designed to suit clients who are cautious on equity market growth. Clients are likely to have a medium to high attitude to risk and be prepared to risk their capital in order to potentially achieve higher returns. This product is aimed at a more market cautious client who has high financial sophistication.
