The Arcus 6Y UK Conditional Income Kickout Plan is a maximum 6 year investment which offers potential quarterly income of 1.775%, dependent on the performance of the FTSE 100 Index.
The potential income
You have the opportunity to receive an income payment every quarter, depending on the performance of the UK stock market – specifically the FTSE 100 (UKX) Index (the ‘FTSE 100’).
♦ On each Income Date, the closing level of the FTSE 100 will be compared to its closing level on the Start Date (the ‘Start Level’).
♦ If the closing level of the FTSE 100 is at or above 80% of its Start Level on an Income Date, you will receive an income payment equal to 1.775% for that quarter, which is equivalent to 7.10% a year (not compounded).
♦ If the FTSE 100 closes below 80% of its Start Level on an Income Date, you will receive no income for that quarter.
The chance for early maturity
From the end of the second year, the Plan will mature early if the FTSE 100 closes at or above 100% of its Start Level on a quarterly Income Date. If this happens:
♦ You will receive the income payment of 1.775% for that quarter
♦ You will be repaid your Amount Invested, and;
♦ The Plan will mature at this point, meaning you will receive no further income payments.
What could you receive when the plan matures?
If the FTSE 100 fails to close at or above 100% of its Start Level on any of the Early Maturity Dates, your Amount Invested is at risk. The amount you will get back 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 80% of its Start Level, you will receive the final income payment and will be repaid your Amount Invested in full.
♦ If the Final Level of the FTSE 100 is below 80% of its Start Level, but at or above 60% of its Start Level, you won’t receive the final income payment but 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 6 of the brochure 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.
