About structured deposits

Structured deposits are products, which combine features of a term deposit (100% protection of capital on day of maturity of the deposit) and investments on financial markets (a chance to have gains higher than standard interest rate on deposits). Drawing on the practically limitless opportunities on many markets, structured deposits are an excellent tool for diversifying the portfolio.

Risks involved with investing in structured deposits

Investments in structured products involve various types of risks, in particular this may be: market risk, credit (bankruptcy) risk, liquidity risk, tax risk, legal risk, interest rate, product complexity, availability of market information risk.

Structured deposits are based on indices of the financial or commodity market, such as FX rates, share prices, values of exchange indices, prices of commodities or baskets of those variables, evolution of which may determine the end interest rate on the structured deposit. Structured deposits have other features than traditional deposits with fixed or variable interest rate. If investment assumptions are not fulfilled, structured deposits may fail to pay interest.

  • Detailed description of risk

    Market risk – yield from structured deposit depends on behaviour of the particular market variable (e.g. FX rate). If the investor’s expectations turn out to be false, then the amount paid upon maturity may be equal to the protected principal. Products (depending on the structure) may also bring a yield lower than the growth/fall of the underlying instrument.

    Credit risk – an investment in structured deposits involves carrying credit (bankruptcy) risk of the Bank, in which the deposit is being set up. Therefore the deposit holder, in case of lack of the Bank’s solvency, shall receive funds due to him under the deposit, in keeping with currently valid principles of protection of funds by Bankowy Fundusz Gwarancyjny.

    Liquidity risk – the holder of an structured deposit may at any time during the subscription period and during the investment period, terminate the investment by withdrawing 100% of principal. It must be remembered that terminating an structured deposit after the subscription period and before its maturity causes the obligation to pay a handling fee upon termination of the structured deposit, the amount of which fee is stipulated in Structured Deposit Terms and Conditions.

    Tax risk – risk of change of tax regulations, causing that investing in financial instruments and products will be involved with a higher tax burden than before, which may make the investment less cost effective.

    Product complexity – concerns risk involved with the nature of the product and documents involved. The more complex and non-standard a product is, the more complex will its documents and descriptions contained in them be. In result understanding how a product works may be difficult in case of a complicated structure of the product and its documents.

    Detailed descriptions of risks are presented in Description of risk involved with financial instruments and products for individuals in Bank Millennium S.A., available in the Bank’s branches and on its website.
