Catalyst Investment Group is offering IFAs 6% commission on its ARM (Assured Risk Mitigation) Capital Growth Bond until the end of August.
The usual commission on the bond is typically somewhere between 4% and 5.25%, depending on the IFA organisation involved and other factors.
Catalyst says the 6% deal coincides with increased demand in the current market for its ARM range.
The group says investors are attracted by the fact its ARM Capital Growth Bond and ARM Assured Income Plan are uncorrelated to the equities markets as they are asset-backed by a pool of US traded life policies.
Catalyst executive director Andrew Wilkins says: “We are offering the 6% commission because there seems to be a lot of interest in the asset class, and we wanted to keep the profile up."
The ARM Capital Growth Bond was launched in 2006 and is designed to double investors’ money over seven years.
Catalyst’s other ARM product, the ARM Assured Income Plan, offers a 10% annual income over a 10 year investment period, paid quarterly.
Both ARM products form part of Catalyst's $250m (£126.9m) ARM Asset Backed Securitisation Bond Programme, which listed on the Irish Stock Exchange last August. To date, Catalyst has raised more than $75m (£38.1m) for its ARM products, 44% of which was invested within the last three months.ifaonline
