However, If the deposit taker does not end the plan early and it runs the full six years, you will receive 2 times any rise in the FTSE 100 Index over the term of the plan, with no upper limit. For example, if the FTSE rises 10%, you will receive 20%, along with a full return of your initial capital. If the FTSE is lower at the end of the term, you will not receive any interest and only a return of your original capital.
With traditional savings rates failing to inspire, this plan offers the potential for significantly higher returns but without risking your capital.”

This plan is also available as a Cash ISA and accepts ISA transfers. Application deadlines apply.
You can only open one Cash ISA each tax year, though you may be able to transfer, as such shopping around thoroughly to try and find the best cash ISA account for your needs can be a good idea. You can use tables on this website to view a selection of different ISAs from various providers, and find out more by following the links.
Tax ISAs work essentially the same as a normal savings account offered by a bank or building society. Savers can deposit up to their maximum ISA allowance into the account which will accumulate on it. The main difference however, is that the interest that accrues on the account is paid tax-free.
When looking for a Cash ISA it is important to consider which would be the best for you, savers should consider things such as how they want to save their money, and if any accounts have minimum deposit requirements.
There are various types of different Cash ISA available to savers depending on how they want to save their money:
ISA providers are required to allow account holders to transfer out to another ISA, either with the same or a different provider. However, ISA providers do not have to allow transfers in to their ISAs. So if you are looking to transfer you will need to find an account that permits transfers in.
You can transfer between ISA types, so you could for example transfer from a Cash ISA into a Stocks and Shares ISA or vice versa. A cash ISA transfer should take 15 days to complete.
