In an online article on the website This is Money Justin Modray of Candid Financial Advice looked at Capital Bonds offering over 8.5% compared to just over 2.4% offered by fixed term five year deals with banks and building societies. AMYMA offer a variety of this type of investment.
In the article he suggests that the reason that some Capital Bonds have such high rates on offer is because they are of significantly higher risk than standard investments.
He notes that these rates may be attractive to retired investors looking for higher returns to combat higher and rising living costs, but also notes that’s these may not be suitable for those investors.
Mr Modray notes that most of these Capital Bonds have performed well in recent markets however that may all change given a downturn in the market.
This article highlights the fact that in the current market place such Capital Bonds are very desirable given the higher levels of income they are able to offer to Investors but that choosing which Capital Bond may be suitable for you is a complex process with many factors which you need to consider when making that choice.
