Plan providers Gilliat Financial Solutions and Jubilee Financial Products have launched new early redemption investments linked to the FTSE 100.
Gilliat is marketing its Kick-out Growth series, which will redeem and make an annual payment if the index is equal to or greater than its initial level.
The five-year product pays a potential return of 9% in year one, with potential for increased payouts in the subsequent years.
Capital is at risk on a one-for-one basis if on any day the FTSE 100 closes below 50% of its starting level.
The plan is open for investment until 24 December set at a minimum of £3,000 with Rabobank serving as counterparty.
Meanwhile, Jubilee is offering the fifth issue of its FTSE 100 Early Redemption Plan, which will knock-out on an annual basis and pay multiples of 8.25% if the index is equal to or greater than its starting level.
Capital will be returned at maturity provided the FTSE 100 has not fallen by 50% or more at any time during the investment term. In this event, capital will be reduced commensurate with the percentage amount the index is lower than the initial level.
The minimum investment is £15,000 and is open to 8 January 2010, with the plan investing in warrants issued by UBS.
