Invest with 95 percent minimum repayment at maturity:
The new “HVB bond with 95 % minimum repayment 03/2028” on the “Global Water Strategy Index“20

  • With the new bond with 95 percent minimum repayment, you can benefit from the opportunity to participate 100 percent in a positive development of the “Global Water Strategy Index”
  • Minimum repayment of 95 percent of the nominal amount at maturity
  • The term is 8 years, whereby the bond can be traded at the stock exchange under normal market conditions

The basis for the development of the “HVB bond with a minimum repayment of 95 % 03/2028” is the “Global Water Strategy Index”. The index tracks the performance of the equity fund “KBI Institutional Water Fonds” (ISIN IE00B64V3N43) taking into account a flexible hedging system. The investment fund invests primarily in equities of companies that are traded on renowned international stock exchanges and are permanently active in all areas of the water industry (water infrastructure, technology and utilities). The Fund invests a maximum of 30% of its net assets in emerging countries.

Mauro Maschio, Member of the Management Board Privatkundenbank of UniCredit Bank Austria, emphasizes: “With the new bond with a minimum repayment of 95 percent on the ‘Global Water Strategy Index‘, we offer investors in the current low-interest environment an interesting investment opportunity in a promising market segment and the opportunity to participate in the performance of the ‘KBI Institutional Water Fonds’ in a risk-optimized manner. The bond offers a 95 percent minimum redemption at maturity.”

The “Global Water Strategy Index” consists of two components, the “KBI Institutional Water Fonds” (ISIN IE00B64V3N43) and a money market investment in cash and money market instruments from the European Currency Area represented by the 3-months Euribor (i.e. the Offer Rate, expressed as a percentage per annum for deposits in EUR with a duration of three months) as determined by UniCredit Bank AG, Munich and published on Bloomberg (Code: EUR003M Index) at 11:00 a.m. Brussels time. The aim of the “Global Water Strategy Index” is to participate in the performance of the fund in a risk-optimised manner, taking into account a flexible hedging system. For this purpose, the system determines the participation of the index in the fund on the basis of the level of volatility (fluctuation in value) of the fund. The higher the volatility of the fund, the higher the proportion invested in the money market index. The lower the volatility of the fund, the higher the proportion invested in the fund.

On the initial observation day, 30.03.2020, the closing price (reference price) of the “Global Water Strategy Index” (underlying) is determined. The base price (95 percent of the reference price) is calculated from this.

The performance of the index is then calculated from the reference prices of the initial and last observation days. If the reference price of the index on the last observation day is at or above the strike price, the redemption per bond will take place on the redemption date, 31.03.2028, at the nominal amount of 1,000 Euros plus the positive or negative percentage performance multiplied by the nominal amount. This means that the redemption amount on the redemption date may be less than the nominal amount of 1,000 Euros, but at least 950 Euros per bond. If the reference price of the index on the last observation day is below the strike price, the redemption will be in the amount of the minimum redemption amount of 950 Euros per bond. The possible loss is therefore limited to 5 percent of the nominal amount.

The capital is invested for a total of 8 years, whereby the bond can be sold under normal market conditions on and off the stock exchange. The underlying “Global Water Strategy Index” is calculated in euros. UniCredit Bank AG is the index sponsor and calculation agent.
