Sunday Times Excerpt - 25th May 2010

“Given that the income is tax-free, the return on £14,000 investment is equivalent to 12.9% for a 50% tax-payer and 10.3% for a 40% tax-payer, with the investment recouped in as little as seven years. As the payments are linked to RPI, this equates to a real return of 18.2% and 15.6% respectively at today’s RPI rate of 5.3%” - The Sunday Times
