Barclays Wealth reissues Super Tracker

Barclays Wealth is reissuing its Super Tracker structured product with an option for investors to link to the S&P 500.

The Super Tracker runs over a three or a five-year term and gives geared exposure to the FTSE 100. It offers investors four times the first 12.5% rise in the index up to a maximum return of 50%, while the five-year option offers four times the first 25% rise in the FTSE with a maximum return of 100%.

The new S&P 500 option will be available on the five-year version of the product from May 9. It will offer four times the first 22.5% rise in the index, up to a maximum return of 90%.

All three versions of the plan guarantee to repay investors’ full capital unless the index falls more than 50% during the term and remains lower than its starting level at maturity. If this happens capital is lost in a ratio of 1:1 with the index.

The group says the product is being launched in response to demand from advisers it surveyed who expressed interest in an America-linked protected investment.


Strategic return

I wonder how many brokers recognise the name of William Littlewood. He was the star UK fund manager of the 1990s and is also probably the best fund manager I have ever met.

Strong demand

This year has brought about many changes for recruiting within the financial services sector. Demand for well qualified and experienced IFAs is still strong despite the economic downturn. The option of being self-employed is still popular as it allows a high level of earnings and more autonomy.
