Zurich is set to offer a guaranteed account linked to the green business sector.
The Zurich Green Guaranteed Account will allow investors to benefit from 100% of any growth in the RBS Green Index, which includes companies specialising in green sectors such as biotechnology, solar and wind energy.
Investors' interest in the green sector is increasing, according to Paul Wright, investment management director at Zurich.
“More and more people are interested in the environment and the businesses that operate in that sector," he says.
"The Zurich Green Guaranteed Account is a new way to link an investment in this sector. We believe this product will prove popular with both intermediaries and their clients.”
The account is open for investment until 21 July 2008 and includes an early bird bonus of 0.33% for applications received before 23 June. Investors can also carbon offset their early bird bonus to climate change organisation, Climate Friendly.IFAonline
