Barclays will launch a dual option version of its Super Tracker plan on January 1.
The plan offers investors a six-year option linked to the DJ Euro Stoxx 50 index or a five-year option connected to the FTSE 100.
Barclays says the six-year version offers investors 10 times the first 10% rise in the DJ Euro Stoxx 50, while the five-year option gives five times the first 15% rise in the FTSE 100, up to a maximum 75% return.
Both plans will return full capital to investors unless the respective index falls by more than 50% and fails to recover to the starting point by maturity, in which capital is lost 1:1 with the index.
Returns are taxed as capital gains, allowing investors to use their annual CGT exemption, freeing up the ISA allowance for different investments.
“We expect demand for this issue to surpass anything we have seen before as favourable pricing conditions have enabled us to offer a record multiple of 10 times the first 10% rise in the Euro Stoxx index,” Barclays Wealth director Colin Dickie says.
“This is probably our best product to date and the proposed changes to CGT rules make it even more attractive.
“Our recent poll showed that most IFAs expect markets to remain volatile for at least six months – in many cases longer – so they need products which protect investors’ capital while boosting returns with only small rises in the index.”
Minimum investment is £4,000 on both plans and adviser commission is 3%.
