Mariana have just launched their second tranche of the first true ESG Structured Product launched in the UK working alongside Credit Agricole as the chosen Counterparty. The Contract is written as an Autocall which is the most popular/dominant shape in the UK.
Structured Products linked to ESG Indexes are quite common in Europe, but not so in the UK. However, when you look at these products and investigate the mechanics, investors are gaining exposure to the performance of these Indices but not really investing ethically which is what has now been changed.
This was achieved by just one simple amendment to how Structured Products are constructed. The normal Bank Bond, which is a significant part of a Structured Product, has been replaced with a Bank Issued Green Bond. Green Bonds have been created to exclusively fund projects that have positive Environmental and/or Climate benefits.
With this small change you can now get true exposure to ESG focused or ethical Indices while at the same time ensuring that the funds invested are used for Green Projects. The Green Bond is issued out of Credit Agricole directly so in terms of credit risk it is treated in the same way as any other Credit Agricole Structured Product.
Please find detailed below the headline details of this Autocall Product. Please refer to the Brochure and KID for full information. Pages 14 -16 of the brochure contains full information on both the chosen Index & the Counterparty for the underlying Bond.
Combined with great potential returns, Structured Investments like this allow you to put to one side current media commentary/market nerves & focus on the pre-defined outcomes offered to Investors going forward. Couple this with the fact that you can complete the whole investment process very simply. There is no need for wet signatures, you can complete each investment with email & scanned documentation plus online Banking.
Please note that for any ISA Transfer cases original wet signature paperwork may still required by many ISA Providers which is outside the control of Mariana and James Brearley (the administrators); the paperwork for these cases needs to be received by the 24 June.
We believe the overall Product design coupled with the current market environment make this a compelling and powerful diversification tool for many Investors’ investment strategies.
As always, we would remind you that this is a limited offer and if you are interested in the Plan we would encourage early action to take advantage of these attractive terms.
