When you invest in the Walker Crips UK Step Down Kick-out Plan, you may receive an accumulated return of 7.75% for each year of your investment depending on the performance of the FTSE 100 Index.
The full Investment Term is seven years, however, the Plan has the potential to mature early (kick-out) from the second anniversary and annually thereafter.
If the FTSE 100 Index is at or above the required level on an Anniversary Date, the Plan will mature early (kick-out) and repay your Initial Investment plus a defined return (as outlined on page 5 of the brochure). The required kick-out level reduces on the third anniversary, and annually thereafter. The required Final Index Level is 75% of the Initial Index Level.
You will receive back significantly less than you initially invested if the Closing Level of the FTSE 100 Index is below 65% of its Initial Index Level on the Investment End Date.
The Counterparty for this Plan is Credit Agricole CIB. If Credit Agricole CIB were to fail or become insolvent, you could lose some or all of your Initial Investment and any return that may be due, irrespective of the performance of any Index.
