Launch Series 62 – ASX

Launch Series 62
Offering Leveraged Upside to the Australian Equity Market with an Enhanced Break-Even feature

The Units in Sequoia Launch Series 62 offer investors 100% leveraged exposure to the Australian Equity Market as measured by the S&P/ ASX200 (ASX:XJO), combined with an enhanced break-even feature for a two year period. The S&P/ASX 200 is recognized as the institutional investable benchmark in Australia. Index constituents are drawn from eligible companies listed on the Australian Securities Exchange. The S&P/ASX 200 is designed to measure the performance of the 200 largest index-eligible stocks listed on the ASX by float-adjusted market capitalization. Representative, liquid, and tradable, it is widely considered Australia’s preeminent benchmark index.

The Units are designed to give investors exposure to any positive growth of the Index over a 2 year Investment Term through the payment of a Performance Coupon at Maturity. Any Performance Coupon at Maturity is calculated by reference to the positive growth of the Index during the Investment Term applied to the 100% leveraged Investment Amount subject to:

  • a Zero Break-Even feature; and
  • a Performance Cap of 35%.

Enhanced Break-Even feature

If the Index Performance is between 0% and 13.95% at Maturity the Zero Break-Even Feature applies. This feature has the objective of ensuring that Investors at least recoup their Total Investment Cost at Maturity so long as the Index Performance is positive at Maturity. In this case the minimum Performance Coupon payable would be 13.95% irrespective of the actual Index Performance (so long as it is greater than 0%). Since the Total Investment Cost is also 13.95%, investors will at least breakeven in this case. As such, the Performance Coupon will be fixed at 13.95% whenever the Index Performance is between 0% and 13.95% at Maturity.

The calculation of the Performance Coupon at Maturity is summarised in the diagram below:

Key risks include:

  • Your return (including any Performance Coupon) is affected by the performance of the Index. There is no guarantee that the Index will perform well.
  • There will be no Performance Coupon payable if the performance of the Index is negative at Maturity and Investors will suffer a 100% loss;
  • There is no guarantee that the Units will generate returns in excess of the Prepaid Interest and Fees, during the Investment Term. Additionally, in the event of an Investor requested Issuer Buy-Back or Early Maturity Event, you will not receive a refund of your Prepaid Interest or Fees.
  • Gains (and losses) may be magnified by the use of a 100% Loan. However, note that the Loan is a limited recourse Loan, so you can never lose more than your Prepaid Interest Amount and Fees paid at Commencement.
  • Investors are subject to counterparty credit risk with respect to the Issuer and the Hedge Counterparty; and
  • The Units may mature early following an Early Maturity Event, including an Adjustment Event, Market Disruption Event or if the Issuer accepts your request for an Issuer Buy-Back.
  • Please refer to Section 2 “Risks” of the Master PDS for more information.
