Innovation made in Banca Akros: the Equity Premium Accelerator Coupon Certificates

Banca Akros becomes a leading player in investment product innovation, launching a new range of Investment Certificates offered in direct listing mode and targeted at ‘self-directed investors’.

The launch will be accompanied by a digital advertising campaign aimed at strengthening the Banca Akros brand and spreading awareness of the new investment certificates that can be purchased directly on the market beginning October 4.

These are 15 Equity Premium Accelerator Coupon Certificates, with a term of 18 months, which allow the investor to obtain coupons conditional on the performance of the underlying share and can mature early from June 2023. The unique feature of this new range of Investment Certificates is that, in the event of early maturity, all future premiums (Accelerator Coupons) that could have been received if the Certificate had not matured early are paid out.

Key Elements:

  • Threshold: from 60% to 75%
  • Premiums: from 1.90% (7.60% p.a.) to 2.75% (11.00% p.a.)
  • Premium Frequency: quarterly
  • Autocallability: quarterly from June 2023
  • Accelerator Coupon (in case of early maturity): from 7.60% to 11%.

The Certificates all have a minimum denomination of 100 Euros and are listed on Cert-X of the Italian Stock Exchange. It is possible to purchase them at the market price on the open market at any time through your financial intermediary/online broker.

(hereinafter “Banca Akros”) for the purpose of providing certain summary information on the characteristics of the Certificates and should not be considered as an offer to the public or recommendation to invest. In this respect, reference should be made exclusively to the Base Prospectus prepared by the issuer in order to find complete and comprehensive information on the issuer itself and on the characteristics of the Certificates. Certificates are complex instruments whose market value depends on the performance of the underlying asset and could become even lower than the nominal value. The issuer’s payment of any periodic amounts due and the settlement amount is subject to credit risk and bail-in risk. From this it follows that this type of investment has risk profiles that make it unsuitable for all investors. It is therefore appropriate that the potential investor in Certificates, before proceeding with the investment, should gather all the information necessary for the correct assessment of risks and consequent suitability and appropriateness to their own profile, if necessary by contacting their broker and at the same time providing the latter with all the information it may require regarding: knowledge and experience in investment matters, financial situation, investment objectives including risk tolerance. This is intended to allow the intermediary to assess the suitability and appropriateness of the investment to the individual investor’s profile. Investment decisions in the Certificates shall be the sole responsibility of the investor and the consequences of any losses resulting from the investment in the Certificates shall be borne solely by the investor. The Certificates may only be subscribed, purchased or sold through intermediaries authorised to provide investment services. These intermediaries will be solely responsible for receiving and executing orders. The offer and sale are restricted in some states or for residents of some states. The Certificates are issued by Banca Akros, and therefore transactions carried out by Banca Akros on these instruments, as well as by other companies belonging to the Banco BPM Banking Group, constitute transactions in conflict of interest. Before signing up, read the basic prospectus and the KID (Key Information Document) carefully, which are published on the website The Base Prospectus is also available at the issuer’s registered office on viale Eginardo, 29 – Milan.
