The safety of a capital guarantee
The Capital Guarantee ensures that the initial investment amount of A$1.00 per Share (or such greater amount as generated by the rising guarantee) is repaid to Shareholders on the Maturity Date regardless of Orb's performance.
The benefit of a rising guarantee
The capital guarantee provided by Citibank allows for a rising guarantee. This rising guarantee enables the capital guarantee to increase automatically over the life of the investment if the performance is strong, potentially providing Qualifying Shareholders with the benefit of a guaranteed minimum return on the Maturity Date of more than A$1.00.
The technology sector has demonstrated growth over the past 30 years, consistently outperforming the broader sharemarket during this time, and the indications are that it will continue to experience growth.
Technology, which incorporates a wide range of industries from mobile phones to medical science, comprises over 30% of world market capitalisation but only 3% of the Australian sharemarket. Orb Technology provides Australian investors with access to those global markets using a specialist fund manager to maximise returns.
