New structured products certified by Forum ETHIBEL
April 08, 2015

In 2015 both AG Insurance and BNP Paribas Fortis continued issuing structured products with a distinct socially responsible profile that are linked to the Ethical Europe Equity Index. The following prodcts have been certified by Forum ETHIBEL:

Since the beginning of 2015 AG Insurance has issued the Smart Invest Bon SRI Europe 9, 10 and 11 as well as the Smart Invest Bon SRI 90 Europe Booster 1, 2 and 3.

BNP Paribas Fortis in its turn launched a new series of structured notes called the BNP Paribas Arbitrage Issuance BV (NL) Autocallable SRI Note series. The first note in the series, the Autocallable SRI Note 2021, was issued in March.

Recently BGL BNP Paribas in Luxemburg launched a similar series called the BGL BNP Paribas Autocallable SRI Note series. The subscription period of the first issuance is currently open.

All of the above mentioned products follow a similar mechanism. On the one hand the return on investment is linked to the performance of the Ethical Europe Equity index. This ethical and optimised index is reviewed every three months and certified by Forum ETHIBEL. On the other hand there is a savings component guaranteeing the reinvestment of the full invested amount following predetermined socio-ethical criteria. Given that the socio-ethical reinvestment is equally certified by Forum ETHIBEL the investment is covered 100% by socio-ethical criteria.

In the coming months more new products will be issued within these series. Visit the websites of BNP Paribas Fortis and BGL BNP Paribas for more information.

Specifications on the reinvestment criteria can be found in the individual certificates which are available on this page.
