Britannia International is planning to launch a US Dollar Optimum Growth Bond early next year.
This follows the success of the capital–guaranteed Optimum Growth Bond which has just had the 21st sterling issue launched. The first two issues matured early with a 31% gross return (8% AER) following strong FTSE growth since their launch three and a half years ago. T
he offshore bank is keen to offer more currency versions in its structured products in order to appeal to expatriate customers who are often not paid in sterling. A euro launch may follow.
