*The performance represented is historical; past performance is not a reliable indicator of future results and investors may not recover the full amount invested. There can be no warranty that an investment objective, targeted returns and results of an investment structure is achieved. The value of your investment can go up and down, and you could lose some or all of your invested money.
Why covered bonds? For protection.
Highly secured bonds
- If the issuer (a bank or mortgage institution) becomes bankrupt, the covered bonds have priority of payment in liquidation
Supported by a double level of protection (dual recourse)
- Backed by the issuing institution
- Backed by a “cover pool” of highly regulated assets that will cover the bond’s payments if the issuer can’t.
No covered bond has ever defaulted in more than 200 years.
