New Global Equity Plans

Mattioli Woods has announced the release of two new structured products today in conjunction with Walker Crips Structured Investments. The plans are based on five leading global companies; BMW, BP, Johnson & Johnson, Microsoft and Roche. The Global Equity Income Plan offers an attractive 10% per annum income stream whilst the Global Equity Kick-Out Plan offers a potential return equivalent to 8% per annum.

Ben Wattam, Investment Manager commented; “Equity markets are becoming increasingly internationalised. A report by Citigroup in March 2011 found that nearly 70% of earnings in the FTSE 100 were generated from outside the UK. Companies are increasingly targeting overseas earnings as the growth rates in many emerging market economies exceed that of the developed world.”

The benefits of each of the Global Equity Plans are that neither requires substantial growth for the attractive returns to be paid. In the current environment of austerity and uncertainty, the defensive nature of these plans makes for attractive opportunities.

Bob Woods, Chairman added; “Our continuing strategy for structured products is to offer plans on a regular basis and for clients to invest modest amounts sequentially to diversify the underlying asset, counterparty risk, and market timing”.

The two new plans are designed to provide further diversification of the structured product portfolio, which now totals over £100m and lies at the heart of the developing broader wealth management business. Mattioli Woods provides a hands-on and holistic service designed to maintain a successful investment strategy tailored to each client’s needs, providing clients with carefully considered investment opportunities.

Further information on structured products can be found on the structured products page of the Mattioli Woods website. Specific product details on areas such as capital protection, potential returns, costs, etc can be found in each plan brochure.
