Accelerated Tracker

Accelerated Trackers are Structured Products, which offer investors a potential Gross Return at maturity based on the amplified rise of an Index such as the FTSE 100. The potential Gross Return is typically capped so there is a maximum potential return. Capital will typically be returned at maturity as long as the Index has not fallen below a predefined Protection Level.
