The investment is in shares (“Shares”) in a company called Britannic Opportunities Limited, registration number 57717 (‘the Company”), which is incorporated in Guernsey and listed on the Bermuda Stock Exchange.  The Company offers preservation of capital of the principal amount initially invested if held until maturity.

The Index value at maturity will be calculated as the simple average of the closing values of the Index on the same date in each month in the averaging period. The maximum averaging period will be 12 months; however, a 3-month period is targeted.

The investment is an investment in Shares of a company incorporated in Guernsey and listed on the Bermuda Stock Exchange.

The Principal Amount will be invested by the Company in

  • Subordinated debt instruments in of a debt issuer*1 that has a rating equal to or better than Investec Bank Limited. (*1 refer Company Prospectus). The Company will deposit the coupons received from the underlying debt instruments with Investec Bank Limited. These deposited amounts will accrue interest. The entire value will be paid to the Company after some 3.8 years in order to align with the first call date of the debt instruments.​​​​​​​
  • Equity option(s) issued by an international bank or entity(ies) in the group of an international bank (such bank or entity(ies) having a minimum international S&P A rating) to provide equity exposure.

The percentage of the Principal Amount invested in the debt instruments will be determined so that the amount received by the Company at the end of the investment period in USD, will be equal to at least 103% of the Principal Amount in USD or GBP equivalent, as applicable.
