Investors searching for decent returns with guaranteed capital security have few options available to them.

 

Gone are the days when investors had a range of capital secure products like high deposit interest rates and generous bond yields. In fact, deposit rates today are practically zero and some banks are even charging their clients to leave money on deposit. Government bond yields have also collapsed, offering less than 1% in most cases today.

 

This new reality has not changed people’s attitudes towards security though. We know from Surveys that over 40% of people surveyed ‘What level of Risk they want to take’ and 40% have said that they want to take no risk at all.

Unfortunately there really aren’t any products out there for investors who want guaranteed capital security with a reasonable rate of return. This all comes back to the super low interest rates on offer from the banks. Capital security offers zero returns.
