Early Bonus Plan 6 offers a final bonus payment of 54% and includes a kick out feature, which means that investors may receive their capital, plus a bonus payment, at any one of five set trigger points prior to the end of the six year term (27 June 2018) - see early bonus payment table below.
The Plan is available for investment over a seven week period from Monday 23 April until Friday 8 June 2012.
David Beard, Legal & General’s Business Development Manager, Platforms & Distribution said, “Once again our Early Bonus series is offering investors the potential for their investment to outstrip inflation combined with the flexibility to access their capital if stock market growth picks up strongly. There are five opportunities for the kick out feature to trigger an early payment. Investors are also assured of the return of their original investment unless the FTSE 100 Index on the 27 June 2018, the maturity date, has fallen by 50% or more of the starting index level on 27 June 2012. This provides protection against a possible slow down in the economy, which could stall any FTSE 100 Index growth.”
The Plan offers repayment of capital plus a bonus as long as the final level of the FTSE 100 Index is equal to, or better than, the initial FTSE 100 Index level at the investment start date (or strike date), provided the investment is held until maturity and the early bonus payment is not triggered.
Early bonus payment
The early bonus payment feature will be activated if the FTSE 100 Index is equal to, or better than, the initial index level at any of the anniversaries. If this happens the Plan will close and pay a set bonus as shown in the table:
|End of Year||1||2||3||4||5||6|
If the early bonus payment feature is activated, the investment will close and there is no option for the investment to continue.
Capital is not protected with this Plan. There is the potential that some or all of the original investment may be lost if the FTSE 100 Index has fallen by 50% or more (that is 50% - 100%) of its starting level at the end of the six year term. The original capital invested will be reduced by 1% for each 1% that the final level of the FTSE 100 Index is below its starting level. So, if the FTSE 100 Index is 60% less than it’s starting level, investors will receive 60% less than they invested.
The minimum investment is £3,000. Investors can invest up to £11,280 in a stocks and shares ISA for the 2012/2013 tax year. There is no maximum for ISA transfers. The last date for ISA transfers is 25 May 2012 to allow time for the completion of the transfer before the offer close date. The closing date for all other applications is 8 June 2012.
