    They sound like Investment Bonds to me with those rates.

    They are not risk free and you could lose your capital.

    Alternatively, if they claim that they're covered by the old Financial Services Authority (that was abolished in 2013), then this also wouldn't paint a particularly positive picture about their attention to detail!

    Ignore, avoid, etc, ....
