I received this from Bradford and Bingley in my mailbox today

Dear Mr Harris,

If so our new 50/50 Property Bond could be right up your street, with a fantastic savings rate plus a guaranteed capital return, coupled with the potential to gain from any rise in the Halifax House Price Index (HHPI)

Watch your savings build and build...

- A five year House Price Bond, paying 110% of any gain in the Halifax House Price Index on the rest

So is this a good investment or is it a cynical attempt to cash in on the sheeples belief that property prices only go up?

Any sales pitch that stresses it is a limited offer and you must act now (because obviously there'll be no houses in a months time... :ph34r: ) is clearly designed to manipulate greed. I'd steer well clear...

I too saw this offer in one of their branches and immediately thought "they think house prices are going to go down don't they!"

It would be a good hedge for them as a building society - as the mortgage portfolio starts to suffer they at least have to pay out less to savers because they've hooked their returns directly up to the property market...
