Introducing

Vital Invest – Certus Guaranteed Fund.

The Certus Guaranteed Fund, as part of Vital Invest insurance, guarantees the client the return of 100 % of the amount invested in the fund on maturity (following the deduction of administration costs). In the event the underlying basket of shares increases, though, it can bring a yield of 5 % each year.

What is the Guaranteed Fund Certus ?

It is a new guaranteed fund from Komerční pojišťovna, a.s., one that broadens investment strategy options as part of Vital Invest life insurance. The fund is ideal for clients that are aware of a potential rise in the price of shares in the food and pharmacy markets and who want to branch out with their finances. At the same time, these are clients that do not want to expose themselves to the risk that the value of their investment will fall.

The Certus Guaranteed Fund offers:

  • the guaranteed return of 100 % of the money invested on maturity (minus administration costs);
  • a yield of up to 5 % per annum;
  • the chance to share in the growth of the shares of prominent world food and pharmaceutical companies;
  • a portfolio managed by experts from the French Société Générale, one of the biggest and most stable banks in the Eurozone.
Subscription period 11. 2. 2013 – 7. 5. 2013 (or until no more funds are available)
Maturity of the fund 6 years; the fund matures on 22. 5. 2019
Premium payment to Certus Guaranteed Fund one-off/extraordinary premium

How the Certus Guaranteed Fund investment strategy works

The performance of the fund depends on the performance of the underlying share basket. The contents of the basket do not vary and consist of the shares of 22 companies:

Name of company Country Name of company Country
Anheuser-BuschBelgiumMonsanto CoUSA
Abbott LabsUSAMerck & CoUSA
Basf SGermanyNestle SASwitzerland
Bayer AGGermanyNovartis AGSwitzerland
Bristol-Myer SQBUSAL‘OrealFrance

Du pont (EI)USAPfizer IncUSA
GlaxoSmithKlineGreat BritainProcter & GambleUSA
Kellogg CoUSARoche Hldg-GenusSwitzerland
Kraft Foods GroupUSASanofiFrance
Eli Lilly & CcoUSAUnilever NVThe Netherlands

How the performance of the underlying share basket is calculated

Performance of shares = actual performance of shares for the past year / for past years since the creation of the fund.

Recorded share performance

  • If the actual share performance value is positive, 300 % of this value is recorded, whereby this value may equal 5 % at the most.
  • If the actual share performance value is negative or zero, 100 % of this value is recorded, whereby this value may equal - 50 % at the worst.

The annual coupon is subsequently calculated based on the recorded performance of individual shares.

The annual coupon is calculated as the arithmetic average of the recorded annual performance of all 22 shares, in that the value is always zero at worst.

The total yield paid on the maturity of the fund is the sum of all 6 annual coupons.

The client receives the following on the maturity of the fund:

  • 100 % of the capital invested (minus administration costs)
  • the sum of the 6 annual coupons (equalling 0 at worst).

Examples of calculating the performance of the Certus Guaranteed Fund

Example 1 – the client receives a yield of 12,20 % on his investment.

Annual coupon2,0%2,0%1,6 %2,0 %2,8%1,8 %
Payment on maturity100 % + 2 % + 2 % + 1,6 % + 2 % + 2,8 % + 1,8 % = 112,2 %

In this case a yield of 12.2 % is paid on the maturity of the fund, corresponding to the sum of the values of the 6 annual coupons.

Example 2 – the client receives 100 % of the money invested (minus administration costs).

Payment on maturity100 % + 0,0 % + 0,0 % + 0,0 % + 0,0 % + 0,0 % + 0,0 % = 100 %

In this case, the share performance mostly ended with negative values. Nonetheless, thanks to the guaranteed return of the amount invested, the client receives 100 % of the invested finances on the date of maturity (minus administration costs) since the values of the annual coupons were fixed at zero.

These examples are for illustration only and do not in any way predict the future performance of the Certus Guaranteed Fund.
