Walker Crips makes income debut

Walker Crips has launched its first three-year fixed income structured product.

There is an early bird offer for investments made prior to the closing date of interest of 1 per cent per annum.

The plan is suitable for investors who wish to achieve a high annual rate of return and are prepared to accept a defined degree of risk. The three-year plan will pay a fixed income payment of 7 per cent gross a year.
