Barclays Wealth has added an Eastern Europe option to its protected Emerging Markets Optimiser plan.
Launching on 16 June, the dual-option Optimiser offers investors the choice between broad emerging markets or a more focussed Eastern European stock exposure.
The Eastern European option offers a return on an equal weighting to the RDX and CECE Traded Index. The RDX comprises of Russian shares quoted on the London Stock Exchange, while the CECE represents stocks in the Polish, Hungarian and Czech markets.
As with the global option, the Eastern European plan uses a risk-adjusting strategy to determine daily participation in underlying markets. Participation will fall when perceived market risk is high and levels will increase when risk is deemed lower.
At the end of the five-year term clients will receive the return from their chosen investment option in addition to initial capital.
“The new Eastern European option is a logical addition and takes our proposition a step further by offering investors the chance to gain enhanced exposure to a more targeted investment base in countries that are widely predicted to perform strongly in the years ahead,” Barclays Wealth director Colin Dickie says.
