The “S&P Global Water Index” forms the basis for the performance of the HVB Cap Anleihe 11/2025. The index is calculated in Euro and includes 50 of the world’s leading multinational companies in the sectors water supply and water infrastructure as well as water treatment and water accessory. The bond provides minimum repayment of 95 percent of the nominal value by the issuer at the end of term.
Christian Noisternig, Area Head Private Customers, Small Business and Independent Professions at UniCredit Bank Austria, emphasises: “With our new Cap Anleihe on the ‘S&P Global Water Index’ we offer investors the chance to benefit from interesting investment opportunities in the promising sector of water supply and water treatment on a diversified basis in these times of low interest rates. The Cap Anleihe also offers minimum repayment of 95 percent on maturity and will therefore be certainly welcomed by security-oriented investors.”
The new Cap Anleihe offers interesting investment opportunities in the medium-term maturity segment. When valuating performance, two average values are set. For this purpose on 13 observation dates at the beginning of the term (first observation period) and 13 observation dates at the end of the term (second observation period) the respective closing rates (reference prices) of the index will be determined. Two average values are formed: The average of the 13 reference prices at the beginning of the term will be compared to the average of the 13 reference prices at the end of the term. The performance of the index is calculated from these two average values taking into account the participation factor of 80 percent.
If the performance of the index (taking into account the participation factor of 80 percent) is greater than or equal to five percent at the end of the term, investors receive the nominal amount of EUR 1,000 plus the calculated positive performance, multiplied by the nominal amount per bond, up to the maximum of the cap (upper limit) on 14 November 2025, the defined repayment date. This means that the maximum redemption amount at the end of the term is EUR 1,400 per bond , the minimum redemption amount is EUR 950.
If the performance of the index (taking into account the participation factor of 80 percent) falls below minus five percent at the end of the term, the investor is repaid at the amount of the minimum repayment of EUR 950 per bond.
The capital is invested for a total of eight years, during which time the bond can be sold under normal market conditions at its current price. The applied “S&P Global Water Index” is calculated in Euro, the index sponsor and calculation agent is S&P Dow Jones Indices LLC.
