Banking on earnings opportunities of equities with capital security:
The new MegaTrend GarantieAnleihe of Bank Austria

  • The new MegaTrend GarantieAnleihe 4/2015–4/2022 of Bank Austria offers earnings opportunities with 20 equities of international companies and capital security at maturity

The MegaTrend GarantieAnleihe 4/2015–4/2022 of Bank Austria lets investors participate in the development of an equity basked comprising 20 stocks of well-known international companies with strong market positions in the sectors of automobiles, cosmetics and bodycare, food and beverages, luxury goods, pharmaceuticals and insurance. The companies include BMW, Volkswagen, L’Oreal, Danone, Mondelez, LVMH Moet Hennessy Louis Vuitton, Johnson & Johnson and Zurich Insurance Group. Thus the equity basket tracks important economic megatrends of today. Helmut Bernkopf, Bank Austria Management Board member for retail and corporate customers, emphasises: "With this new MegaTrend GarantieAnleihe we offer investors the chance to benefit easily from the opportunities on the equity market in these times of low interest rates. The capital security at maturity significantly limits the risk of holding the investment to the end of the whole term compared to a direct investment in individual stocks."

The MegaTrend GarantieAnleihe opens up the opportunity for a promising investment in an interesting basket of equities with a term of seven years. The value of each equity on 13 observation dates in the first and last year is recorded and an average derived to measure performance. This averaging method mitigates the risk of sharp price fluctuations at the start and the end of the term significantly. When the basket matures, investors benefit from the entire positive average performance of the equity basket.

In the event the performance of the underlying equity basket is negative, the bond has a capital security guarantee of 100 per cent at the end of the term. This means that the bond will be paid back at least at the nominal amount of EUR 1,000 per bond. The capital is invested for a total of seven years, and the bond can be sold under normal market conditions at its current price.
