- Specific risks associated with the subordinated bond:
If the issuer finds itself in a situation requiring increase of regulatory capital, all measures will need to be taken first to internally create capital in accordance with applicable European legislation. The regulatory authority may order the transformation of subordinated bonds into equity (shares), reduction of their principal, or their full depreciation. If the issuer, in this case Erste Group Bank AG, is liquidated or becomes insolvent, all unsubordinated debt obligations shall firstly be settled (e.g. mortgage bonds, senior bonds) and only then will investors in subordinated bonds receive their funds. A further risk for subordinated bond holders is the possible limitation of their liquidity. It cannot be ruled out that in future it will not be possible to trade bonds on any market nor sell them before their maturity date. In view of these risks subordinated bonds offer the bonus of a higher yield.
