The Investec FTSE 100 Defensive Step Down Kick Out Plan is designed to repay your initial investment and deliver a return dependent on the performance of the FTSE 100.
If at the end of years 2, 3, 4, 5 or 6 the FTSE 100 is higher than a specified percentage of its starting level, the Plan will mature returning your initial investment plus a fixed payment equal to 5.5% per annum (not compounded).
The below table shows the levels that the FTSE 100 needs to exceed for the Plan to Kick-Out or pay a return.
|Year||% of the index's starting level||Return|
However, if the Plan runs for the full 6 years and at the end of year 6, the FTSE 100 finishes lower than 60% of its starting level, your initial investment will be reduced by 1% for every 1% fall in the FTSE 100 at the end of the Plan Term.
Other Key Information

Investec Bank plc
This product is denominated in GBP and is designed to return your initial investment as well as delivering a return linked to the performance of FTSE 100 (the “Underlying”) over the term of 6 years. This product also has the potential to mature early (“Kick Out”), returning your initial investment plus a return depending on the performance of the Underlying.
Early Maturity (Kick Out)
This product will “Kick Out” at the end of any year from the 2nd year onwards, returning your initial investment as well as 5.5% (not compounded) for every year that has elapsed since the Start Date, provided that the Underlying is above a reducing percentage of its starting level. These percentages are 100%, 95%, 85%, 75%, 65%.
Maturity After 6 years
If no Kick Out occurs and the product runs to the Final Maturity Date, your return will be determined accordingly:
♦ If the Underlying is above 65% of its starting level, the product will return your initial investment plus 33%
♦ If the Underlying is equal to or below 65% of its starting level, the product will return your initial investment with no additional return
♦ However, if on the Final Maturity Date, the Underlying is below 60% of its starting level, your investment will be reduced by 1% for every 1% fall in the Underlying.
This product has been designed for investors who are looking to potentially achieve a high level of growth over a term of 6 years but can accommodate receiving their money back before the end of the term. Investors will have a medium appetite to risk. They will be prepared to risk their capital in order to achieve higher returns.
