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 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/Lowes 8:8 Plan is designed to repay your initial investment and deliver a return if the FTSE 100 increases over the Plan Term.

If the Kick-Out Level is equal to or higher than 92% of the Initial Index Level, the Plan  will mature early (Kick-Out) and you will receive back your initial investment plus 7.25% per annum (not compounded).

The Kick Out Dates occur every 6 months, from the end of year 2 onwards.

However, if the Plan runs for the full 8 years and at the end of year 8, 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

The 8:8 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 FTSE 100 (the “Underlying”) over  the term of 8 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 semi-annual period 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 Underlying is above 92% of  its starting level.

Maturity After 8 years

If no Kick Out occurs and the product runs to the end of the recommended holding period, your return will be determined accordingly:

If the Underlying is above 92% of its starting level, the product will return your initial  investment plus 58%

 If the Underlying is equal to or below 92% of its starting level, the product will return  your initial investment with no additional return

 However, if 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 8 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.  Additionally, investors will have knowledge and understanding of this structured product  and experience of financial markets.
