Coupon income in Barclays regular income bond makes up for capital loss

Losses to capital resulting from a barrier breach in this Barclays regular income bond were offset by the coupons (or the growth option) paid over the life of the five-year product. Regular growth products created at the beginning of 2008, when this product was launched, would have fared less well

Initial capital was at risk if the 60% barrier was breached and if the index was below its initial level at maturity.
