Mariana FTSE 4X Uncapped Supertracker (Issuer Callable) July 2020

Mariana have launched their second tranche of this exciting new product which could well be a great addition to many investors’ portfolios looking forwards. N.B. Timescales are tight on this one for investment & the original tranche was oversubscribed very quickly, therefore if you wish to invest in this plan please submit your application as soon as possible so we can arrange to reserve funds for you.

The new Mariana FTSE 4X Uncapped Supertracker (Issuer Callable) July 2020.

A bit of a mouthful but with the FTSE 100 still over 20% down from its highs in January, this product allows clients to get 4 times participation in any rise in the FTSE 100 uncapped. This means that if the FTSE 100 was 10% higher on the End Date compared to the Start the client would receive a return of 40%. The product has a 65% European barrier, meaning capital is only at risk if on the End Date the FTSE 100 was more than 35% below its Start Level. This product has an Issuer Callable feature, where the counterparty (Citi Group) can close the product early on any quarter from the end of Year 2 but not only would they need to provide return of capital to investors they would also need to pay a return of 9% per year. For example, if the counterparty decided to call the product early after 3 years and 3 months the client would receive their money back plus a return of 29.25%.

Combined with great potential returns, Structured Investments like this allow you to put to one side current media commentary/market nerves & focus on the pre-defined outcomes offered to Investors going forward as things return to the new normal.

Couple this with the fact that you can now complete the whole investment process from your home offices. There is no need for wet signatures you can complete each investment with email & scanned documentation plus online Banking. All at a time when many people have sufficient time on their hands to really consider what’s on offer.

Please note that for any ISA Transfer cases original wet signature paperwork is still required by some ISA Providers plus the paperwork needs to be received by the 10th June (to allow for possible delays in the post we request that applications are received by ourselves by 4th June).

Headline details of the product are as follows but please refer to the Brochure for full information on the Plan.

Don’t Forget the Risks

As with all forms of investment there are risks involved. These plans do not guarantee to repay the money invested. The potential returns of the plans and repaying the money invested are linked to the level of the stock market and also depend on the financial stability of the Issuer and Counterparty Bank.

The promotion of the plans does not constitute ‘advice’ to invest. Advice is always specific to an individual investor’s circumstances and needs, following the process of ‘know your customer’, with the aim of ensuring that any product is suitable for an investor.

As always, the recommendation and common sense approach is to consider product solutions as a portfolio, never over-exposing oneself to a point of financial pain and suffering liquid or counterparty exposure.

At the Best Price FS price point (when combined with our smiley and helpful service) the Mariana Plans are certainly worthy of consideration for inclusion within investment portfolios.


Simply get in touch if you wish to receive regulated advice in relation to the ‘suitability of the plans to meet your investment needs’.

Warmest Regards.
