Premier offers safety net for property investors

Premier Asset Management has introduced a protected pan-European property plan.

The product, which has a six-year term, will offer returns linked to the Premier pan-European property share fund managed by Alex Ross.

The plan offers 100 per cent of any capital growth and a full return of capital will be offered if the vehicle is held until its maturity date on July 5, 2013. The product is available until June 29 with the minimum investment set at 5,000. Interest of 3 per cent is offered to early investors in the plan.

Premier launched the pan-European property share fund for Ross on his arrival from Aberdeen Asset Management in 2005. The fund invests both in property companies and collective investment schemes.

Managing director, sales and marketing, Simon Weldon says: “One of the key disadvantages of indirect property investment, as with any stockmarket investment, is volatility and there is always a risk the fund could fall in value.

“This is why we have built in a safety net which provides 100 per cent protection against the erosion of capital, providing the plan is held until maturity.”
