The "STOXX® Global Select Dividend" index with 100 selected high-dividend equities is the underlying instrument for the 0.5% Fixzins GarantieAnleihe 2016 – 2023 Series 109. The "STOXX® Global Select Dividend 100 Index" comprises high-dividend stocks from around the world. Among others, the stock index currently includes equities of consumer goods manufacturers Altria and Mattel, pharmaceutical stocks such as AstraZeneca and GlaxoSmithkline, telecommunication giants like AT&T and Verizon as well as insurance companies such as Allianz and Swiss Re.
Helmut Bernkopf, Bank Austria Director for Private and Corporate Customers, emphasised that "With the 0.5% Fixzins GarantieAnleihe 2016 – 2023 Series 109 we offer investors the chance to benefit easily from interesting opportunities on the equity market in these times of low interest rates, because historically, dividend-paying shares have always managed to perform well versus the overall market. This bond combines a fixed interest rate with the chance to benefit from rising prices. The integrated capital security factor limits the term-end risk within the meaning of a low-risk investment."
The new Garantie-Anleihe offers attractive investment opportunities over a mid-term horizon. On the one hand, this Garantie-Anleihe pays out a fixed interest rate of 0.5 percent p.a. Also, this bond participates 100 percent in any percentage gains made by the "STOXX Global Select Dividend 100" index up to a maximum yield of 50 percent2. When calculating performance, the index reading on the calculation day at the end of the term is compared to that at the start of the term. The underlying instrument is a price index. This means that the dividend payments of the companies in the index are not included in the calculation of the index.
In the event the performance of the underlying stock index is negative, the bond has a capital security guarantee of 100 percent 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 7¼ years, and the bond can be sold under normal market conditions at its current price.
