BCP European Defensive ESG Kick-Out Bond

BCP is delighted to launch the new BCP European Defensive ESG Kick-Out Bond that provides exposure to a portfolio of 75 larger companies from across Europe, with the highest ESG scores and the strongest financial indicators. The Bond itself aims to deliver a strong yield with significant capital protection features. This listed security is issued by SG Issuer with Societe Generale as the Guarantor.

Kick-Out Bonds such as this are designed to provide strong, fixed returns without investors having to take direct equity risk. BCP has designed this product to optimise the return potential whilst minimising the risk of capital loss with opportunities for the Bond to mature early quarterly from the end of the first year. 

Key Features

  • The aim of the Bond is to provide a potential return equivalent to 9.0% p.a. and return your capital in full at the end of the 10 year Term, or earlier
  • Underlying Europe Evolution Fund provides exposure to a portfolio of 75 larger companies from across Europe, with the highest ESG scores and the strongest financial indicators. The fund includes a risk control mechanism designed to manage the amount of volatility the fund is exposed to
  • Potential returns of 9.0% per annum (2.25% per quarter) if the Fund is at or above the Autocall Barrier on any quarterly observation date, after the first year
  • Autocall Barrier is at 100% from the end of year 1 until the start of year 5 when it drops to 90% until maturity. At the end of the Term, the Fund can fall by up to 10% and still pay a gain of 90%
  • 100% of invested capital will be returned at maturity provided that the underlying Fund has not fallen by more than 50%. If the Fund has fallen by more than 50% you will lose 1% for every 1% fall in the Fund. This is a capital at risk product. Societe Generale is the Guarantor and SG Issuer is the Issuer of the Bond. In the event Societe Generale fails to meet its liabilities, you could lose some or all of your money.
