Reference Entity Certificate with Conditional Capital Protection
Category — Structured Products
The face value and interest will be paid at the time of expiration if the credit event on the underlying asset or the reference company doesn’t happen while the bond is traded. The credit event is specified in the bond prospectus and can be in the form of lowering of a credit rating by a rating agency, bankruptcy, debt moratorium, etc. If the credit event occurs, a part of a minimum value of the certificate is paid or nothing is paid, in other words the investor loses the money. At the same time, the certificate issuer always offers a larger income than for the securities from the category with protected capital.
