OTP Podviynyi provides a fixed interest rate on a deposit, which is 3 points higher than the standard deposit in OTP Bank – 15% per annum – as well as an opportunity to receive additional income from participation in the fund, which invests money into G-bonds, which are currently bringing more than 16% of annual yield. An additional advantage of investing in the fund is obtaining profit in form of dividends, which allows to reduce taxation by half, down to 9% (+1.5% military tax).
Reliability of this investment is confirmed not only by years of experience and perfect reputation of OTP Group, but also by state guarantees. The deposit from OTP Bank is guaranteed by the Deposit Guarantee Fund. The strategy of the mutual fund involves the investment in government bonds, guaranteed by state.
“For the first time, a similar "hybrid" product was launched in 2012 in Ukraine, following the successful experience of Hungarian colleagues, OTP Fund Management and OTP Bank. In recent years the offer of such a program by OTP Capital and OTP Bank twice a year has become a good tradition in Ukraine, aimed to give a good opportunity for investors to try mutual fund as alternative way of investing and at the same time to obtain a higher rate for deposit. The yield of such product is usually 3-5 percentage points higher than standard deposit rates. This time it's possible to get a double catch of benefits from OTP Group only till the middle of October, but the total emission is limited, so I would not advise you to postpone the investment till the last day," - said Vitaliy Dyshlovy, Head of Sales and Marketing Department of Asset Management Company “OTP Capital”.
