Win a weekend at the Grand Prix

Supremacy, success and skilfulness are essential elements of the modern


competitive business world. Nowhere is the cut and thrust of day-to-day


challenges more closely matched than in the world of motorsport.


That is why we at Money Marketing are pleased to have an


adrenaline-pumping weekend for two at the British Grand Prix at Silverstone


(April 22 and 23) to give away in this Money Marketing/Sterling


competition.


In the current competitive climate, getting information on the move and


keeping up to date with advanced technology is also essential to business


success.


Cutting-edge technology needs cutting-edge products and, to celebrate the


launch of the new Sterling Isa, we have four internet mobile phones to give


away as runners-up prizes.


So don&#39t tie yourself in knots to get the best investment for your clients.


Sterling has bent over backwards to bring you a surprisingly flexible new


Isa which offers a whole range of choices to suit clients&#39 needs.


This powerful package, designed to attract a wide market audience, gives


clients the opportunity to select from a range of 15 leading investment


fund managers.


The Isa offers exposure to the major investment markets – the UK, Europe,


US and Japan – as well as global specialist markets.


Technology funds are available, as are specialist niche markets tracker


funds and ethical funds.


This dynamic new product will appeal to regular, lump-sum and transfer


investors looking for a wide choice of investment managers, fund types and


risk profiles.


By allowing investors to switch funds without being penalised in


anticipation of markets moving, the Isa will be attractive to investors


seeking advice to construct a pers onal portfolio.


Any amount can be accessed subject to at least £500 remaining in the


account at any time. No notice period is required and there are no


additional exit charges.


It is ideal for clients looking for an income. Up to 10 per cent of the


Isa fund can be taken as regular withdrawal, either as a fixed amount or a


percentage of the fund.


One feature that provides an important fail-safe for investors looking for


a secure investment is the minimum death benefit for all clients.


The Sterling Isa has been designed to pay out on death the amount invested


less withdrawals (other than income generated), even if the investment fund


value has fallen.


To mark the launch of its Isa on April 6, Sterling is offering readers the


chance to win a fantastic first prize of a weekend for two at the British


Grand Prix at Silverstone.


Plus, there are internet mobile phones with one year&#39s rental to be won by


four second-place winners by answering three simple questions in the box


below.


All you have to do is answer the questions on the left and send your


answers on a postcard to Anita Saunders, Zurich IFA Group, PO Box 750, SN38


1FA, to arrive by April 17, 2000.


Don&#39t forget to include your name, address and a contact phone number.
