Investec FTSE/S&P 500 Defensive Step Down Kick Out Plan 12

Investec Structured Products Logo

The Investec FTSE/S&P 500 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 and S&P 500.

If at the end of years 2, 3, 4, 5 or 6 both the FTSE 100 and S&P 500 are higher than a specified percentage of their starting levels, the Plan will mature returning your initial investment plus a fixed payment equal to 7.25% per annum (not compounded)

The below table shows the levels that both the FTSE 100 and S&P 500 need to exceed for the Plan to Kick-Out or pay a return.

Year% of each index's starting levelReturn
2100%14.5%
395%21.75%
485%29%
575%36.25%
665%43.5%

However, if the Plan runs for the full 6 years and at the end of year 6, either the FTSE 100 or S&P 500 finish lower than 60% of their respective starting levels, your initial investment will be reduced by 1% for every 1% fall in the worst performing index at the end of the  Plan Term.

For further details on how we calculate your returns, which includes the use of averaging, please see ‘How does the Plan work?’ on page 6 of the brochure.

Other Key Information

The FTSE/S&P 500 Defensive Step Down Kick Out Plan is a structured investment. Your money will be used to buy securities issued by 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 the FTSE 100 and S&P 500 (the “Underlyings”) 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 Underlyings.

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 7.25% (not compounded) for every year that has elapsed since the Start Date, provided that the worst performing Underlying is above a reducing percentage of its starting level. These percentages are 100%, 95%, 85%, 75%.

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 worst performing Underlying is above 65% of its starting level, the product will return your initial investment plus 43.5%

 If the worst performing 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 worst performing Underlying is below 60% of its starting level, your investment will be reduced by 1% for every 1% fall in the worst performing 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. Investors will understand that the potential returns of this product are linked to the performance of the FTSE 100 and the S&P 500.

Additionally, investors will have knowledge and understanding of this structured product and experience of financial markets.
