Skipton Building Society is offering a five-and-a-half-year investment plan linked to the FTSE 100. Up to 50% of the initial capital in the Balanced Fixed Rate Investment Plan goes into a one-year fixed rate bond, giving a 6.25% return gross per year until June 2004. The remaining capital goes into a protected fixed rate plan offering 40% growth and full capital repayment at maturity unless the FTSE 100 falls by more than 50% and fails to recover during the term of the product. Minimum investment in the plan is £7,000.
