UAF Patrimoine launches UAF Autocall, a new structured bond that offers an alternative to dynamic equity investments
Eligible for inclusion in UAF Patrimoine’s Octavie 1 and 2, Alyss and Laurys policies and linked to the performance of the Euro Stoxx 50® index, UAF Autocall offers investors the following benefits:
- a profit objective of 7.5% per completed year if the Euro Stoxx 50® index does not record a decline of more than 50% at maturity compared with its initial level.
- an early redemption mechanism triggered automatically from year 1 to 5 if the performance of the Euro Stoxx 50® index from the starting date (30 December 2011) is positive or zero. In this case, investors receive the full amount of their capital plus a gain of 7.5% per completed year.
At maturity, if the early redemption mechanism has not been triggered previously, the capital is exposed to a risk of a loss only if the Euro Stoxx 50® index has declined by more than 50% since the starting date.
Amid the turbulent economic conditions currently prevailing, with a highly uncertain outlook for the equity markets and a low level of interest rates, UAF Autocall represents a straightforward and easy-to-understand investment opportunity with ideal market timing given the decline in the equity markets.
