The Arcus 5Y UK Fixed Income Plan is a 5 year investment which offers quarterly income of 1.3875%, with a potential bonus of 1% at maturity, dependent on the performance of the FTSE 100 Index.
The quarterly income
You will receive an income payment every three months (quarterly) during the term. Each income payment will equal 1.3875% of your Amount Invested (a total of 5.55% a year).
A final conditional income payment
On the final income date only, you have an opportunity to earn extra income. You will receive an additional 1% of your Amount Invested on the final income date if the FTSE 100 closes at or above 100% of its Start Level on the Final Maturity Date (meaning a total final income payment of 2.3875%). If the FTSE 100 closes below 100% of its Start Level on the Final Maturity Date, there is no additional payment and your final income payment will be 1.3875%.
What could you receive when the plan matures?
Whether you are repaid your Amount Invested in full at maturity will depend on the Final Level of the FTSE 100. On the Final Maturity Date, the closing level of the FTSE 100 is recorded (the ‘Final Level’).
♦ If the Final Level of the FTSE 100 is at or above 60% of its Start Level, you will be repaid your Amount Invested in full.
♦ If the Final Level of the FTSE 100 is below 60% of its Start Level (meaning it has fallen more than 40% since the start of the Plan), the repayment of your Amount Invested will be reduced by 1% for every 1% fall in the FTSE 100 (please see page 5 for some examples of how much you could lose in different scenarios).
Crédit Agricole Corporate and Investment Bank (“Crédit Agricole CIB”) is the Issuer, meaning it is responsible for issuing the investment (known as Securities) which the Plan will purchase in order to provide the returns of the Plan to you. If the Issuer becomes insolvent, you could lose a significant amount of your Amount Invested, regardless of the performance of the FTSE 100.
