AT-1 notes of Deutsche took a havy hit amidst the banking disaster unfolding
So…. After the close to default of debit suisse, and the whole wipe out of 16bn USD in AT-1 notes, I determined nowadays that it could be well worth the time to do a “thorough” deep dive into the character of those bonds.
So I discovered, the Deutsche Financial institution issued such bond in November 2022 (ISIN: DE000A30VT97) Further Tier 1, after refinancing and passion rose for all people.
My two questions here’s: The place did I omit out? Is that this a damage or a cross?
For my “in-depth” investigation:
(+) First, Deutsche is paying a hard and fast coupon of 10% p.a. till 2028, which sounds no longer like a nasty deal assuming inflation remains underneath the yield price for the approaching time. Any other benefit will be the recuring “mounted” bills vs. spending hours inspecting shares to be able to free money.
(+) 2d, maximum unexpected for me, the bond these days trades 85ct for 1EUR, so the markdown is fairly heavy. Deutsche Financial institution AG 10% Anleihe | A30VT9 | DE000A30VT97 | Kurs (boerse-frankfurt.de)
(+-)3rd. I (attempted) to learn the emission prospectus and drew the belief, that the bonds can be nugatory, when their Tier 1 Capitalisation Ratio will fall underneath 5.125%. It these days (12/31/22) sits at round 15%. So if the bonds are nugatory, the financial institution must be actually bankrupt. *2022-11-10_AT1_Prospectus.PDF (db.com)
(+) Fourth, Deutsche Financial institution had the Credit score Suisse struggles from the years 2012-2018, scandals were resolved, altough it took a very long time, the financial institution diminished dangers (they mentioned so) and is these days run by means of a monotonous (appears cast) German man. No longer the kind of CEO who attracts consideration by means of tailing his employes or circumventing Covid restrictions by means of the use of a company jet.
(-) 5th, their score is simply litte above Credit score Suisse remaining score, within the vary of A+ to A-. The credit score defaul switch spreads are these days at 175 bps, so fairly prime.
The ECB mentioned, underneath their jurisdiction, fairness must be ate up first. ECB Banking Supervision, SRB and EBA remark at the announcement on 19 March 2023 by means of Swiss government (europa.european)
