Abbey releases capital-guaranteed bonds for wary investors

UK Bank Abbey has launched four new capital-guaranteed bonds designed to cope with the volatile market conditions. The products guarantee return of all capital at their four-year maturity and each tracks different international indexes, including the UK FTSE 100, the US S&P 500, the Chinese Hang Seng index and the Japanese Nikkei 225.
