Barclays Wealth is reissuing the US and UK versions of its Super Tracker investment strategy for investors predicting an elongated U-shaped recovery.
Launching on 7 July, the two Super Trackers are designed to offer investors enhanced upside from the US and UK stock markets through leveraged exposure to the FTSE 100 or S&P 500.
The products target investors who believe the promising recoveries across both sides of the Atlantic will be followed by a prolonged period of minimal growth.
The US Super Tracker is a standalone five year investment offering three times the first 26.6% rise in the S&P 500, subject to a maximum return of 80%.
UK Super Tracker is available for three or five year's investment. The three year option offers three times the first 15% rise in the FTSE, subject to a maximum return of 45%, while the five year version allows three times the first 30% rise in the index, up to 90%.
In all cases, investors' capital is repaid in full unless the respective indices close at a level below 50% at any time during the term and remain lower than the starting level at maturity, in which case capital is lost one for one with the index.
"Most commentators believe there will be a recovery of sorts in the UK and US stock markets but there is increasing uncertainty about whether they can deliver strong returns in the medium to long term," says Lisa Chaudhuri, manager, Barclays Wealth.
She believes the Super Trackers will appeal to investors who anticipate an elongated U-shape recovery and are seeking a vehicle to boost low returns.
"With a significant level of capital protection both Super Trackers also guard against further market falls, giving investors peace of mind in what is likely to be a uncertain environment in the years ahead."
