BNZ goes head to head with Ords

BNZ has taken on Ord Minnett directly in the market for capital protected investments.

The Bank of New Zealand has gone head to head with Ord Minnett in the market for capital protected investments with a bit of spice.

BNZ has launched its second capital protected term deposit, just days after Ord Minnett put the latest series of its popular OM-IP investment into the market.

The two-part products are similar in that they offer investors a capital guarantee combined with exposure to some much higher risk investment.

In BNZ's case its investment offers returns linked to two major sharemarket indices – the UK’s FTSE 100 index and the European Eurostoxx 50 index.

While Ords place a portion of the money it raises with a futures trader.

BNZ's EuroStock is designed to let the investor enjoy European sharemarket performance with 100% capital protection and the assurance of a minimum return at maturity without currency risk.

BNZ Premium Financial Services general manager Katherine James says EuroStock appeals to many types of investors, from the risk averse to those with more diversified portfolios.

"Customers’ capital and return will not be affected by fluctuations in the New Zealand dollar against the Pound Sterling and Euro plus there is the peace of mind that comes with 100% capital protection," she says.

Ord Minnett's OM-IP series has been popular over the years but it is unknown how much money New Zealand investors have put into these Australian based investments over the years.

BNZ launched its first capital protected investment, which was linked to the S&P 500 index in October last year. The exact amount raised has never been made public, but it is understood to be around $34 million.

EuroStock investors receive 60% of the growth in the two indices and, no matter what happens in the sharemarkets, the capital is repaid in full at maturity in three year's time. In addition, there is a minimum return of 6% at maturity.
