Structured products

About the product

Structured products are among the most modern and interesting bank products available on the Polish financial market. They are an example of an effective blend of a conservative bank deposit with investments in diverse financial instruments.

The products provide opportunity to invest in all sectors and locations worldwide – on equities', bonds, commodity markets, investment and hedging funds. Products ensure access to instruments, markets and investment strategies not available before to many investors including, in particular, individual Clients. 

Taking advantage of practically unlimited opportunities provided by many markets, structured products have become an excellent tool to diversify your portfolio. 

Structured products create a rich and diverse group of innovative, tailor-made financial products characterised by: 

  • pre-defined level of guarantee of your capital, 
  • pre-defined disbursement formula, 
  • value at expiration conditional upon value of other instruments. 

The terms and conditions of access to a structured product are defined for each such product independently. Relevant information together with descriptions of risk involved with the product is provided in the product presentation as well as in essential issue documents or T&C, which are available free of charge in Bank Millennium S.A. Financial Centres.

Risks

Structured products with full or partial capital protection are investment products in the form of, inter alia, bonds, banking securities, investment deposits or insurance policies, based upon financial or commodity market indicators such as FX rates, prices of equities, values of stock exchange indexes, commodity prices or baskets of the above variables potentially setting up bases for calculation of final interest rates of the bonds, amounts of banking securities settlements or amounts to be disbursed from the policy. Structured products are covered by full or partial capital guarantee on investment maturity date. Structured products with partial capital guarantee provide capital protection at the level below 100%. Under such cases, investors have to be prepared for losing capital but, in return, can expect higher share in potential profits.


In case of structured products, full or partial guarantee of capital is effective only on the investment repurchase/maturity day. In case of a structured product sale on secondary market before maturity/repurchase day, the full or partial capital guarantee will not apply.
