Do you still have questions? We have the answers:
What is FestPlus?
FestPlus is an alternative to the traditional fixed-term deposit offered by banks, developed via the bond market. FestPlus has a fixed term until September 2027 and pays back the invested money in full at this time. In addition, you receive interest distributions during the term, which are invested back into your FestPlus to make the most of the compound interest effect. If you need your money before the end of the term, you can sell FestPlus on the stock exchange at any time at the current price and have the money paid out. This further increases flexibility, although your money is exposed to fluctuations on the bond market during the term and can therefore also incur a loss. To put it in a nutshell, FestPlus combines the positive elements of attractive interest payments from a fixed-term deposit with the flexibility of the capital market. We have developed FestPlus in such a way that, like our CashPlus product, it revolutionizes fixed-term deposits as call money 2.0.
How much return can I expect with FestPlus?
At the time of the product launch on February 13, 2024, the annual return was 3.80%. However, the actual realized return depends on the time of your investment and can therefore be higher or lower. FestPlus therefore gives you the opportunity to invest your money for a longer period until September 2027, similar to a fixed-term deposit, and thus secure an attractive interest rate.
Can I lose money?
That is possible. If you invest your money in FestPlus, you can expect the current yield to maturity until the end of the term. As of today, this is 3.80% (February 13, 2024), provided that no bond in which FestPlus invests defaults (the so-called credit risk) This is unlikely, but cannot be ruled out. At the same time, no single bond in FestPlus can account for more than 3% of the investment amount, which represents an additional safety mechanism. In comparison, if money is invested in a traditional fixed-term deposit offered by a bank and this bank gets into payment difficulties, only the deposit protection up to €100,000 applies. If you sell FestPlus in whole or in part before the end of the term in September 2027, you may also incur losses due to fluctuations in the bond market (the so-called interest rate risk).
This makes FestPlus the better fixed-term deposit.
The return after costs is calculated as follows: The annual interest rate of 3.80% at the consideration date of February 13, 2024 is multiplied by the portfolio value and then divided by 12. The costs of FestPlus and the use of UnitPlus amount to a total of 0.62%. Accordingly, the amount invested is multiplied by 0.62% and then also divided by 12. In the final step, the costs are deducted from the return, resulting in the net return after costs.
