Scottish Life International releases its indicative participation rates for Q2, topping 300 per cent for the first time.
The quarter, commencing March 14, sees the fund provider’s indicative participation rates for the Protected UK Index fund with 95 per cent protection surpassing 300 per cent, unprecedented in the UK.
These funds are available through the Safe Combination bond from Scottish Life International.
Scottish Life International marketing manager Douglas Law says: “Volatility has fallen to low levels across all markets.
“This has resulted in good news for indicative rates for the next quarter, demonstrating that capital protected funds can potentially outperform the index over the short term, whilst balancing risk and reward.
“Although 95 per cent protection means 5 per cent is at risk each quarter, with these levels of participation it will need growth of just 2.7 per cent to outperform the index.”
