Keydata bond offers two annual income deals

Keydata Investment Ser-vices has set up an extra income plan offering

a choice of either 6 or 8 per cent annual income over five years

depending on the choice of capital protection selected.

The first version of Plan 4 offers investors the choice of either 6

per cent annual or 1.44 per cent quarterly income or 32 per cent

capital growth.

The second option gives investors the choice of 8 per cent annually

or 1.93 per cent quarterly or 43 per cent capital growth.

Capital on both versions is returned in full at the end of the term

unless the FTSE 100 index falls by 40 per cent during the term and

fails to recover to at least its starting level.

In this event, capital will be eroded by 1 per cent for every 1 per

cent fall in the FTSE for the 6 per cent option and by 2 per cent for

the 8 per cent option.

The plan is available through a maxi Isa, a Pep or Isa transfer or

direct investment. Minimum inv-estment is £7,000.

Investment services sales director Mark Owen says: “Intermediaries

are under increasing pressure from clients to answer demands for

income in the face of paltry returns from deposit accounts and

continued uncertainty over equities. The plan offers reassurance

through its transparent structure, a quantifiable approach to risk

and realistic but att-ractive levels of return.”
