After several years of absence, new structured certificates issued by UniCredit Bank have been reintroduced to trading on the Warsaw Stock Exchange.
The certificates are offered by Alior Bank Private Banking and the underlying instrument is the S&P GSCI Crude Oil-Index Excess Return-Index.
“We are glad that UniCredit Bank AG has issued a new series of structured certificates on our market after a few years of absence,” says Małgorzata Zaleska (pictured), president of the Warsaw Stock Exchange.
“The new instruments add new price index linked to the global commodity markets to the range of available investment opportunities. We realise that education is key to attracting new investors. Hence, we have partnered with issuers to jointly engage in initiatives which promote knowledge of this market segment. The introduction of the certificates to trading also demonstrates that a transparent secondary market of trading is essential for investors.”
One series of certificates ISIN DE000HVB1730 has been introduced to trading with a final trading date of 13 November 2020. The issue price of the certificates is PLN100. The issuer has introduced 128,388 certificates to trading. The new instruments will be traded on the parallel market in the Market Maker System. The certificates were distributed in a non-public offering by Alior Bank.
“Alior Bank has noted strong interest in such investments,” says Marcin Kobus, head of savings products, Alior Bank. “In the low interest rate environment, clients are looking for alternative investment opportunities. Certificates are investment products which give access to a range of underlying assets. Knowledgeable investors use the potential of alternative instruments to build investment portfolios. Thanks to the introduction to trading on the exchange, the certificates are a liquid financial instrument traded on a regulated market at a market price. The bank is arranging further issues of UniCredit Bank AG structured products to be introduced to trading on GPW.”
