The AXA Express 2 certificate combines the opportunity to generate an attractive yield with the possibility for an early redemption. The share of AXA S.A. serves as underlying for the investment product without capital protection. The Express Certificate offers an attractive profit opportunity for those investors who expect the share of Europe’s largest insurance company to quote at or above its current level within the forthcoming five years.
The certificate has a minimum term of1year and a maximum term of 5 years. If the closing price of the AXA share quotes at or above its redemption level (equal to the share’s closing price at the initial valuation date) at one of the annual valuation dates, (early) redemption is effected according to the predefined redemption price.
If the share quotes below its termination level at the respective annual valuation date, the term extends by another year and the potential annual termination price increases by 15% to a maximum of 75% of the nominal value. This means, the longer the term, the higher the potential termination price (between 115% and 175% of the nominal value).
In case no early redemption was effected from the first to the fourth year and if the underlying quotes below the termination level at the fifth and final valuation date, an additional safety mechanism applies: in case the closing price of AXA share quotes above the barrier of 60% at the final valuation date, redemption is effected at 100% of the nominal value. This means investors do not generate profit and the nominal value of EUR 1,000 is redeemed.
Then the investor gets the AXA shares in the amount predefined at the issue date (nominal value/strike). The difference to the integral number is paid out.
