Bank Austria's new Floater-Obligation 2011–2013 Serie 20 bond offers an attractive interest rate and security of capital
The 2-year floater bond with a short term and a variable interest rate is tailored to the needs of corporate investments but is also suitable for private customers who are interested in short-term investments with an increasing interest rate. The interest rate will be adjusted to the 3-month EURIBOR plus 0.4 per cent p.a.1) on a quarterly basis over the entire term of the bond and paid every quarter. The Floater-Obligation 2011–2013 Serie 20 bond is denominated in units of EUR1,000. The minimum investment is EUR 3,000.
With this bond, investors will be able to invest their money at an attractive variable interest rate for a reasonable period of time while benefiting from a possible increase of the 3-month EURIBOR. If investors expect the 3-month EURIBOR to rise in the next two years, the floater bond will be the right investment.
Security for capital and interest
Interest on the floater bond will be paid on a quarterly basis on specified dates. The floater bond will be repaid at the nominal value of 100 per cent only at the end of the term pursuant to the conditions of issue. Bank Austria is liable with its entire assets for the payment of interest and capital.
The bond may be sold at the relevant price before maturity; the market price is influenced by market interest rate levels, liquidity, the debtor's rating, and by the laws of supply and demand.
If the investment is not held to maturity there is a risk that investors may not get back the full amount invested, especially if the investment is only held for a short time.
