How to earn 1% per month (12% per year) by investing in these companies
Thanks to the certificate CH0377502726 issued by Leonteq, with a nominal value of 1000 euros per piece, it is possible to invest in these 4 companies, collecting 1% per month in the form of a coupon. ( See coupon coupon benefits )
Therefore, investing 10,000 euros, or buying 10 pieces, you will collect 100 euros a month if none of these companies were to experience a 33% drop in qutations. ( See product sheet for more information )
How do you invest in this product?
This certificate is quoted on the CERT-X segment of EuroTLX, so just look for this ISIN ( CH0377502726 ) in your home banking, to proceed with the purchase.
What are the risks?
If even one of the 4 stocks were to lose more than 33%, the coupon of 1% would no longer be paid, until the security returns above this threshold. If this happens, thanks to the memory effect, we will collect the unpaid coupons, in the period when the price has remained below the barrier level.
In the event that, at the expiration date of the certificate, even only one of the securities had lost more than 33%, then even our investment would suffer this loss.
The coupons of this certificate, are considered “different income”, which makes it possible to recover the losses, made with other instruments such as shares or bonds.
Therefore, by buying this certificate, we will not pay the withholding tax on the coupons, as long as we have not recovered the losses on other instruments.
How does the refund work?
At maturity, within one year, if none of the underlyings is below the barrier level (-33%), we will receive 100% of the nominal value, even with negative performances of the underlying assets. It is ideal for those with bullish or moderately bearish expectations. The certificate could be reimbursed in advance.
