Nationwide Overseas - the Isle of Man subsidiary of Nationwide Building Society - has launched a five-year guaranteed investment bond, linked to the FT-SE 100, which guarantees a minimum return of 20 per cent gross.

Gross interest payable will be equivalent to any rise in the FT-SE 100 during the life of the bond, or to 20 per cent, whichever is greater.
