Man Investments has launched the Man IP220 Index Notes Series 4 based on the Man IP220 family of investment products. The notes feature capital protection and a controlled level of risk.
The Global Head of Sales for Man Investments, Christoph Möller, says: "The popularity of the IP220 series is easy to understand, given its performance record over a long period. In today's uncertain markets we expect a strong response from investors eager for the chance to gain attractive returns, away from traditional investments, with the comfort of a capital guarantee and provision for a profit lock-in."
Man Investment states, "The underlying portfolio has delivered strong returns over the past 12 years, especially when traditional investments were falling. The first capital protected product in the Man IP220 series has delivered a compound annual return of 16.6% from 18 December 1996 to 30 June 2008. This equates to a total return of Man IP220 Ltd of 489.5%, compared with just 63.9% for world stocks and 93.4% for world bonds in the same period of time."
Man IP220 Index Notes Series 4 is offered in CHF, USD and EUR denominated notes, which come with the security of capital protection underwritten by Deutsche Bank AG, London Branch, and a profit lock-in feature.
