Quantum PLUS 13 divides your money equally between the Quantum and PLUS portions:
Quantum portion (50% of the deposit amount)
Half of your money (the Quantum portion) is held for one year in a deposit account earning 3% AER for Sterling and US dollar deposits or 8% AER for Australian dollar deposits. After one year you will receive back this half of your deposit plus interest at the relevant fixed rate.
PLUS portion (50% of the deposit amount)
The other half of your money (the PLUS portion) is held for five and a half years in a deposit account. At maturity you will receive back this half of your deposit plus a proportion of the Market Performance of your chosen market. There is no cap on the Market Performance used to calculate your potential return. Your return is based on the growth in the market of your choice:
