The latest issue of Morgan Stanley's FTSE Protected Growth Plan really gives investors something to shout about.

A six year structured product requiring a minimum investment of £3K, the plan gives investors the chance of a return equal to the full growth of the FTSE 100, plus of course the return of the original capital they invested.

What is more, there is no cap on the overall return should the investment run to maturity.

Adding to its appeal is an early kick out option, giving investors the opportunity to exit the plan early with a fixed return of 18% (plus their original investment) if the FTSE 100 has risen by 15% or more after the three years.

The offer period closes 15 March 2010, while the product can be held within an ISA or SIPP/SSAS.

Standing out from the crowd in a competitive market, this product earns the maximum five out five Moneyfacts stars.

Marc Chamberlain, Executive Director, UK Structured Solutions, Morgan Stanley comments:

"The FTSE Protected Growth Plan resonates with current investor sentiment about markets generally, enabling them to tap into the stock market whilst still protecting their initial investment. A five out of five star rating from Moneyfacts confirms our belief that we are offering products which can add real value to investors' portfolios."
