BCP Equity Index Kick-Out Bond 4

BCP is delighted to launch the new BCP Equity Index Kick-Out Bond 4. This European equity investment strategy aims to deliver high yield in a low return environment, with strong downside protection.

Kick-Out Bonds such as this are designed to provide strong, equity-based, fixed returns without investors having to take full equity risk. BCP have designed this product to provide returns in excess of current equity market performance, with significant levels of in-built capital protection. We believe this is an attractive investment opportunity, considering the current equity market uncertainty, for investors looking to reduce portfolio risk while still aiming to generate equity-type returns.

The guarantor of this listed security is Société Générale, which has a A+ rating from Fitch. The bond references a leading European Equity Index, and employs a robust capital protection feature.
