NDF Admin goes fourth with 3-year 30% return

NDF Administration is offering a fourth version of its extra-income and growth plan.

It features a return of 30.5 per cent over three years, providing the Dow Jones Eurostoxx 50 index does not fall by more than 20 per cent over the term.

Income investors can get up to 10.1 per cent a year for three years, again providing the Eurostoxx index does not fall by more than 20 per cent during the term.

Plan 4 will be sold exclusively through IFAs. Its predecessor, the third version, has attracted £100m since launch in June.

The Eurostoxx 50 index tracks the top 50 companies listed on European stockmarkets. As long as the market does not fall below 20 per cent of the starting index level, the investor will receive 100 per cent of their capital plus growth.

Managing director Antony Stack says: “We believe that the extra income & growth plan 4 offers cautious investors the best possible returns, whether they are investing for income or growth. By using innovative investment techniques, we have been able to combine excellent returns with a considerable degree of protection in a highly tax-efficient way.”
