Barclays Global Investors is launching a new traded endowment fund. The BGI Endowment Fund III is an investment trust that will buy second- hand with-profits endowment policies. It has a projected annual return of 11.1 per cent a year. The fund is aimed at long-term investors, as it will pay out over the last five years of its life, in the years 2009 to 2013. BGI's last two endowment funds were both oversubscribed and have been trading at a premium of 4 per cent. Minimum investment is pounds 2,000. For a mini-prospectus call 0800 448860.
