Bank Austria's new Inflations-GarantieAnleihe 2011–2016 Serie 16 offers attractive earnings potential in the case of rising prices

With its new Inflations-GarantieAnleihe 2011–2016 Serie 16, Bank Austria is offering a new GarantieAnleihe for investors who expect prices to increase over the medium term and who want to take advantage of this anticipated development to achieve attractive earnings. This GarantieAnleihe has a five-year term and offers capital security when it is held to maturity. The coupon will be paid out annually on the coupon dates, with fixed interest in the amount of 3 per cent p.a.1 paid out for the first two years. In the third to fifth year, the coupon will be determined based on the positive percentile change in the value of the European Harmonised Index of Consumer Prices (HICP) ex Tobacco. This change will be used to calculate the inflation rate, which investors will participate in at a rate of 133 per cent, paid out as an annual coupon (corresponding to 100 per cent of the inflation rate after the deduction of Austrian capital yields tax).1 The minimum investment is EUR 4,000, and the bond is denominated in units of EUR 1,000.

Security for your capital and interest
The interest earned by the GarantieAnleihe is paid out annually on a fixed date. Investors receive 100 per cent of the nominal value of their capital at the end of the term.

If investors require their money before maturity, Inflations-GarantieAnleihe 2011–2016 Serie 16 can be sold at the prevailing market price. However, it should be noted that the GarantieAnleihe is subject to price fluctuations during the term. If the investment is not held until the end of the term, the investor may fail to recover the full invested amount.
Bank Austria guarantees the payment of the interest and capital with all of its assets.
