The performance of the oil price is in the focus of investors, financial markets and media alike. Since the end of the oil price slump in the first quarter of 2016, the prices of major oil brands have steadily recovered and have settled above the 60-dollar mark.
The USD Oil Bond Guarantee Certificate is based on the Brent Crude Oil Future. The certificate addresses investors, who expect at least moderately rising prices of Brent Crude Oil, but at the same time wish for a 100% capital protection at the end of the term.
At the initial valuation date the starting value (settlement price of the Brent Crude Oil Future) is determined. At the final valuation date the settlement price of Brent Crude Oil is compared to the starting value and one of the following scenarios will apply:
- SCENARIO 1: Oil price unchanged or ABOVE the starting value
If the settlement price of Brent Crude Oil quotes at or above the starting value at the final valuation date, redemption at the maturity date is effected at 135%. This is equivalent to USD 1,350 per USD 1,000 nominal value and at the same time represents the maximum amount (maximum payout).
- SCENARIO 2: Oil price BELOW the starting value
If the settlement price of Brent Crude Oil quotes below its starting value at the final valuation date, the capital protection applies and the certificate is redeemed at 100% of the nominal value at the maturity date. This is equivalent to USD 1,000.
Please note: The USD Oil Bond Guarantee Certificate is denominated in USD. If the cash flows from the certificate are later converted into another currency, additional risks as well as opportunities arise from possible fluctuations of the currency price.
