ADIB launches second tranche of Healthcare Pharmaceuticals Equities Basket Note following popular demand
UAE, Abu Dhabi, 8 July 2017 -Abu Dhabi Islamic Bank (ADIB), a leading financial institution, has launched a second tranche of its Healthcare Pharmaceuticals Equities Basket Note following popular demand from customers and investors on the first tranche that was launched in May 2017. Designed to capitalise on projected growth in the healthcare industry, the Shariah-compliant note matures in one year and provides 100% capital protection at maturity to minimise investment risk.
The product provides investors with exposure to a basket of leading international companies operating across the healthcare and pharmaceutical sectors, including Pfizer, Merck, Celgene, Novartis and Novo Nordisk. The note is open for subscription until August 24, 2017 and offers a 3-month lock-in period. The minimum investment for the note, which has a maturity date of August 30, 2018, is US$30,000.
Daffer Luqman, Global Head of Liabilities and Wealth Management at ADIB, said: 'We continue to see strong demand for ADIB's Shariah-compliant equity basket notes as investors appreciate the opportunity to attain strong returns in a low return environment with no risk to their capital. Global healthcare is a growth industry due to aging demographics in developed economies and increases in population and wealth in emerging markets. This note provides exposure to leading international pharmaceutical companies primed to capitalise on such demographic and economic trends. As a bank, we will continue to develop tailored wealth management solutions to customers which allow them to meet their financial goals through a diversified investment portfolio.'
ADIB continues to develop and deliver best-in-class solutions tailored to meet the financial needs of customers through effective financial planning and asset allocation.
On June 5, 2017, an ADIB Shariah-compliant equity note capturing the performance of blue-chip German exporters yielded 5.46% upon its maturity.
