Investec expands structured product range

Investec has launched its eighth collection of structured products.

The new tranche includes the launch of a new capital guaranteed FTSE100 income plan.

The plan is deposit-based, offering a full capital guarantee and offers annual income payments of 6 per cent per annum provided the FTSE 100 doesn’t halve during the five year investment term.

If the 50 per cent barrier is breached then all future income payments will cease.
The latest collection sees a continuation of the company’s range of accumulation plans, income plans and investment plans.

All plans are underwritten by Investec Bank which is Baa3 rated by Moody’s Investors Service.

Investec says it plans to develop its structured fund offering by the end of Q2 this year.

Investec head of intermediary sales Gary Dale says: ‘’With the UK base rate at 50bps, its lowest level in its 315 year history, income generation continues to be a focus for investors.”
