Morgan Stanley says it improved terms for its latest FTSE-linked structured products suite.
Its six-year Tracker Plus Plan 4 offers 125% participation (120% previous issue) in the rise of the UK index, with a minimum capital return of 80%.
Protected Growth Plan 35, will knock out after three years and return 120% (116% previous issue) if the index has risen by 10% or more from its initial level. Otherwise it will continue until year six, when it will return capital with 100% of any index growth.
Kick Out Growth Plan 5 matures early after three years returning 150% (140% previous issue) if the index has risen by 10% or more. Otherwise, it continues to year six returning capital plus 130% of any rise in the index. A -50% soft protection applies.
Best Entry Growth Plan 5 sets the strike date at the lowest level recorded in the first three months of the term. The product returns the capital in full and pays 200% of the rise in the FTSE100, capped at an overall 125%. A -50% soft protection applies in bear market scenarios.
Experienced advisers know that structured products are an effective way of accessing market volatility and offsetting risk to help optimise an investment portfolio, said Marc Chamberlain, executive director at Morgan Stanley. But not everyone shares the same market outlook, or the same investment goals, and we think it's important to cater for these different views and risk profiles with a sensible and responsible core offering.
Thee products are open until 28 July. Minimum investment is -ú3,000.
