The Kauri Income Units and Kauri Growth Units are invested in Permal Multi-manager funds that generate high returns with 100% capital protection.

The new units are PIE compliant. "The immediate success of Kauri Notes suggested there is a strong latent demand in New Zealand for a product that provides a unique combination of high security, high performance and liquidity," Savings & Loans director Don Cowie says.

The Kauri Notes already on issue are currently achieving around a 20% annualised return, he says, even though the financial markets have been volatile.

The Kauri Growth Units are targeted to achieve an annual return of 5% above the bank bill rate.

"While we are understandably delighted at the initial performance of Kauri Notes, it is early days and we well understand this rate of returns may not continue, but it is important to note that Kauri Income Units are primarily designed to deliver regular returns above market rate, whatever the phase of the market cycle," Cowie says.

The Kauri Income Units are intended to provide investors with a quarterly coupon at a market return of 9.50%.

Kauri Income Units also feature a guarantee of interest on the first eight coupons.

The Kauri Units offer opened on December 17 and funds will be invested in Permal Funds each two months, with the sixth and final subscription being made in October 2008.
