Paradigm launches Keydata structured products

Paradigm Group, the IFA and mortgage partnership proposition, has launched a range of structured investment products to its membership through the investment specialists, Keydata Investment Services Ltd.

The products are aimed at delivering sensible investing through the provision of a choice of investment solutions meeting a broad range of investment objectives.

Paradigm adviser members can now provide three Keydata Plans to their clients.

The Keydata Plans available through Paradigm include the Extra Income Plan, which aims to provide investors with a regular, fixed income over the investment term with the potential for the full return of the initial investment capital at the end of the five-year term.

The Dynamic Growth Plan Plus (Issue 15): this aims to provide investors with accelerated growth of the FTSE 100 Index, over a five-year investment term with the potential for the full return of initial investment capital at maturity.

The Defined Income Plan (Issue 8): this aims to provide either regular income or growth over the investment term of the Plan with the potential for the full return of the original capital at maturity.

As at the end of 2008 Keydata had attracted over £2.6bn of assets under management.

Bob Hunt, Partner at Paradigm Group and chief executive of Paradigm Mortgage Services, says: “Paradigm Group is committed to offering our membership a variety of product options that meet their client’s wide and varied needs.

“We are therefore delighted to be working with Keydata and launching these three structured product investment plans to our adviser members today.

“We certainly believe they offer an attractive opportunity for investors looking for solutions which have the potential to deliver in volatile markets. Each of the three plans available includes a variety of options for clients to choose based on both the term they would like to invest over and the return they are seeking.

“Paradigm members will undoubtedly have clients who can benefit from these structured products and we would advise all those interested to visit both the Paradigm and Keydata website for further information on the available range.”

Steven Graham, head of intermediary sales at Keydata Investment Services Ltd, says: “We are really please to be forming a strong relationship with Paradigm. We are committed to working with quality independent financial advisers since we believe they offer consumers the best financial advice.”
