Investec Bank has a little something up its sleeve for structured product investors looking to benefit from future growth in the FTSE 100.

On maturity, the latest tranche of the Guaranteed Five Year FTSE 100 Growth Plan will pay 100% of the growth in the UK's flagship index, up to a maximum of 75%, on top of returning the investor's original capital.

Minimum investment is £1.5K, while the product is also available within an ISA wrapper, SIPP or SSAS.

The offer period closes 29 January next year, with the investment start date being 15 February.

For providing the opportunity to achieve a decent windfall, this product earns four out five Moneyfacts stars.

However, investors must bear in mind that if the FTSE 100 has fallen after the five year term, it is only their original capital that will be returned.
