The Reyker FTSE 100 Quarterly Conditional Income Plan could potentially return a quarterly income of 1.575%, subject to the performance of the FTSE 100 Index.
Issued by Credit Suisse AG (A rated by S&P, A1 rated by Moody’s and A rated by Fitch).
Investors can afford to leave their capital invested for 8 years
This investment could potentially return a quarterly income of 1.575%. This will only occur if the underlying index, in this case the FTSE 100, closes at or above 75% of its starting level on the quarterly observation dates. Investors will not expect the FTSE 100 to fall below this level on any observation date.
Could this investment end early?
Yes. It is possible for this investment to end early and this could happen from the end of year 2 and quarterly thereafter. This will occur if the FTSE 100 closes at or above 105% of its starting level on the quarterly observation dates. If this does occur, investors may face a reinvestment risk.
Potential return of capital
At maturity, this investment has a capital at risk barrier feature that will determine how much, if any, of your initial invested capital you will receive. In this case, if the FTSE 100 has fallen by more than 40% from its starting level, you will lose capital. This will be at least 40% of your initial invested capital and potentially all of it. This is because a barrier breach will result in you losing capital on a 1 to 1 basis equal to the percentage fall in the FTSE 100. For example, if the FTSE 100 has fallen by 70% at maturity, you will lose 70% of your initial invested capital. This barrier feature is known as a 60% European barrier and it poses a risk
to your capital.
The capital at risk barrier feature gives your investment a degree of protection against a fall in the FTSE 100. However, it makes this investment riskier than, for example, a bank deposit. As such, investors will not expect the FTSE 100 to fall by more than 40% in 8 years’ time.
How can this investment be held?
Direct, Stocks & Shares ISA (new or transfer in), SIPPs/SSAS, Corporate, Charities and Trusts.
By investing in this plan, you are placing your capital at risk. It is not guaranteed that you will receive an income from this investment. If you are looking for a guaranteed income, you should not invest. Any potential income and return of your capital is subject to Counterparty bank risk. If Credit Suisse AG default, you could lose all your invested capital and potential income. This investment does not pay growth and any potential return is not linked to inflation. If you are looking for a growth, or an inflation linked investment, you should not invest
