Premier releases latest tranche of structured offering

Premier Fund Managers this week released the latest tranche of its Premier limited editions structured product, a six-year growth plan based on the FTSE-100.

The manager says the structured product is offering investors the potential of growth whether the market rises or falls and there will be 100 per cent redemption of capital whatever the market does.

Investors will receive 75 per cent of any growth if the final value of the plan rises over the term. If the final value falls investors receive 1 per cent capital growth for every 1 per cent the final value has fallen, capped at 30 per cent. A flat market will return investors their initial investment capital at the end of the term.

The minimum investment amount is £5,000, the maximum is £1m and the offer period closes April 16, 2004.

Premier Fund Managers managing director Jonathan Fry says: “This is a great investment, a chance to make money from a falling or rising market. Crucially important for the risk-adverse, investors will receive the full return of their capital at the end of the term, whatever happens.”

When will everyone realise that this action is pathetic? Equities must constitute a greater proportion of longer-term investment funds, especially when the alternatives (gilts and corporate bonds) have […]

MEP backs adviser against FOS

He was contacted by the IFA who says he is unable to afford a judicial review. Chichester thinks that the FOS should never have been set up outside the […]

Standard mistrust

It is all very well for Standard Life to crow about their IFA salesforce being their jewel in the crown and how they have “invested heavily in it and our long-term relationship with IFAs” but what about what they have done to us on all the personal pensions of theirs that we sold back in […]
