Important Update – Please Read
We are currently able to accept postal applications, however given the current circumstances we would suggest sending applications to us by e-mail if you can. The funds for your investment should be transferred direct to the investment company so they have cleared funds by the closing date. Account details for transferring funds are included on all application forms. Please send completed application forms and appropriateness questionnaires to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will confirm receipt of your application within one working day.
If you have opted to pay your fee separately we will provide you with our account details when confirming receipt of your application.
The Investec FTSE 100 3 Year Defensive Deposit Plan is designed to repay your initial deposit and deliver a return provided that the FTSE 100 does not fall by more than 10% or more over the Plan Term.
♦ 3.75% return if the FTSE 100 is higher than 90% of its starting level on the Final Maturity Date
♦ If on the Final Maturity Date the FTSE 100 is equal to or lower than 90% of its starting level you will receive back your initial deposit with no return.
The use of Averaging to calculate the Final Index Level can reduce the adverse effects of a falling market or sudden market falls before maturity. Equally, it can reduce the benefits of an increasing market or sudden market rises before maturity.
