Successful maturity prompts creation of new investor opportunity

Lowes launches the latest in the series of 8:8 Plans, in collaboration with Mariana Capital.

Ian Lowes, Managing Director of Lowe, said “This is potentially ideal for those investors that want to reinvest some, or all their 8:8 maturity proceeds.”

Following Investec’s recent withdrawal from the UK Retail Structured Products sector, Lowes Structured Investment Centre, has turned to Mariana Capital for the latest 8:8 Plan utilising Morgan Stanley as counterparty.

The 8:8 Plan April 2021 is a maximum eight-year investment constructed to offer a potential return of 3.25% for each six-month period it runs, with the possibility of early maturity and the full repayment of the initial capital from the end of the Plan’s second year and semi-annually thereafter.

The launch follows the successful maturity of the Investec/Lowes 8:8 Plan Issue 1 on March 8, 2021, which gave investors a gain of 22.5% plus the original capital – this despite the FTSE 100 being down almost 7% over three years.

Ian Lowes stressed structured products have an appealing track record, but remain off the radar for most people.

Ian Lowes continued, “the Investec/Lowes 8:8 Plan Issue one was the 1,001st investment of its type to mature for UK retail investors – all but 8 of those produced attractive gains. This could also be a fantastic investment opportunity for other investors who are completely new to the sector.”

Applications to invest in the new 8:8 Plan can be made before April 23 with the Strike Date of the Plan being April 30, 2021.

The new 8:8 Plan utilises the new FTSE CSDI Index, created specifically for structured products by FTSE Russell, the same organisation that calculates and publishes the FTSE 100 Index.

The performance of the CSDI very closely correlates with the FTSE 100, tracking the same shares and the returns that can currently be offered on structured products linked to the CSDI can offer comparatively higher potential.
