This tranche is open for investment until 6 May 2011 with a minimum investment of €5,000."

The investment includes; One year 7.5% (gross) Fixed Return Fund - -  customers invest one-third of their money into a secure* one-year market-leading 7.5% Fixed Return Fund.

100% Capital Secure* Investment Bond – customers can benefit from returns in equity markets by investing two-thirds of their money in SecureAdvantage 16 over a term of 4 years and 11 months.

* NI said to provide the capital security on Secure Advantage 16 and the 7.5% Fixed Return Fund, New Ireland Assurance Company plc (New Ireland) has entered into an arrangement with the Governor and Company of the Bank of Ireland. The amount that New Ireland will pay at the end of each term will be based on the value of the New Ireland arrangement with the Governor and Company of the Bank of Ireland. In the event that the Governor and Company of Bank of Ireland is unable to meet its obligations to New Ireland, you may lose some or all of the amount invested and/or any return on your investment at the maturity dates. 

Commenting on the launch, Eoin Kennedy, Head of Products, New Ireland Assurance said: “Customers are continuing to adopt a more risk adverse investment strategy when it comes to their money.

We offer cautious investors the real potential to take advantage of today’s and future market opportunities but knowing that risks are minimised in that their original investment is 100% protected at the end of the investment term,”
