Innovation in fixed-term deposits in Germany: With Savedo, savers can securely invest in stock market trends

  • FestgeldPLUS offers the potential to receive interest rates of up to 3.15% p.a. on a fixed term of 12 months
  • The safety of a term deposit enhanced with the opportunity to profit from stock market trends

Berlin, 8 March 2017 – Savedo announces today the launch of FestgeldPLUS, a new form of investment that is available to German savers exclusively through its international retail investment platform savedo.de. The new product is the result of a collaboration with Savedo's latest partner, the innovative Portugese investment bank Banco de Investimento Global, S.A. (BiG), which offers savers fully-insured deposits with a potential return of up to 3.15% on a 12-month term.

With FestgeldPLUS retail savers may now participate in the upside of the stock market, without taking the risk of losing their investment. This is accomplished by combining the best qualities of fixed-term deposits with a basket of popular underlying stocks grouped to follow popular trends. Customers invest in a specially-designed 12-month term deposit and their investment is protected by the deposit guarantee scheme of the EU member country Portugal, up to a maximum of EUR 100,000 per client, just like a traditional fixed-term deposit.

With FestgeldPLUS, we are allowing retail investors to invest in stock market trends they believe in, without facing the risk of a loss on the principal. This product gives investors the opportunity to safely participate in the dynamic of the stock market, potentially with a high return, with completely transparent terms. In addition, we are delighted we have found a partner in BiG, which for many years has been among the best and most stable banks in Portugal and has already received several awards for its achievements.

Björn Jüngerkes, Managing Director at Savedo GmbH

Savedo and BiG have designed two initial products which empower customers by allowing them to choose to profit from trends they believe in. The interest rates of the FestgeldPLUS products are determined simply and transparently by the performance of two baskets of well-known corporate stocks. If the share prices of the stocks in each basket remain constant or rise over the 12-month term, investors will receive an interest rate of up to 3.15 %. If aforementioned targets are not achieved, the principal is nevertheless secure and repaid in full, at maturity.

Our common goal with Savedo is to reconcile German savers with the stock markets by allowing them to prevent any loss on their investment, in contrast to a direct investment in the stock market.
