    I've have been thinking about this one. Talked to ANZ and they offered me a 5 year fixed mortgage at 4.99% so am thinking of taking a couple of hundie to invest in this. Small risk and easy money in my view !

    Personally I would never borrow to invest but I'm an old fuddy duddy and may well be an idiot.....a lot of differing views on this idea in thread on "investment strategies...folly or fortitude. Bottom line is we are all responsible for our own decisions. I am investing in these because I had sold down some of my other bonds since I thought interest rates may have been going up. I guess as long as you are not sinking all of your trust in one product its fine but a wide spread of investments always seemed like a good idea to me.

    I am like you BB, have never borrowed to invest other than in rental properties. Probably won't do it this time either but just thought it was interesting that ANZ offered to lend me money at 4.99% to invest with them at 7.20%

    I can see why this would be a perplexing situation for many and for others it would seem like easy money, which on the face of it, it is.
    Let's ramp it up to illustrate my points better. Suppose you're debt free and have a lovely home in Nelson worth say $700,000 and the bank offered to lend you $500,000 to invest in these Basil 3 capital compliant loss absorbing deeply subordinated unsecured financial instruments. Suppose also you're in a good paying job and / or business and all is well for the average Joe Bloggs. Joe and his Mrs think this is the easiest 2.2% return they'll ever make and will earn $11,000 before tax for nothing right ? WRONG.

    1. You are trading the security of your debt free family home for "a risk" to make that $11,000 per annum before tax, $7,370 per annum after 33% tax.
    2. You are moving from a completely risk free, (assuming you're living in a part of Nelson that doesn't flood) totally secure position in your home which provides long term security for you, your wife and your children to a psotion where you're exposing them to risk.

    So what's the risks ?

    1. Debt servicing Risk. Well ANZ in certain circumstances don't have to pay interest on these and its non cumulating and they wouldn't if there was a serious "event". You however would still be required to pay your interest at $25,000 per annum and while this probably wouldn't greatly affect you it would smash many families budget to bits.

    2. Capital Risk. They're loss absorbing so in the event of a crisis at any time over the entire life of this financial instrument, (read GFC Mk2), if in the Reserve bank of Australia's opinion it was necessary for the bank to give its shareholders "a haircut" you could see a substantial portion of your investment obliterated but of course you'd still be left holding the baby on your full $500,000 mortgage. If you got a 40% haircut, ($200k of your $500K gone, it would make the circa $7.5K per annum after tax return, look a bit silly wouldn't it !!

    Now I know you're a bright and likeable guy and have your head screwed on well and truly and have a range of other quality investments and wouldn't be so silly as to do this to a level of half a mil so the above is purely for illustrative purposes for others to understand the risks, fully.

    There's no free lunches in the investment world even when it appears there are !!

    Now on the other hand if one were to say, yes there's risk here (as in any capital investment), but lets borrow that $200K and invest in more HNZ shares which will give better dividends and in all likelyhood dividend growth each yearand capital appreciation I think there's a far better case to be made for that sort of investment being better on a risk / reward basis, e.g. your investment could easily double (as you know it does with that company), in value in 5 years and you're being pretty well compensated for the risk involved.

    Disc This poster thought he was clever and decided to partake of what appeared to be a free lunch and did what you're proposing to do on a fixed interest product prior to the GFC and got his fingers burned...once bitten twice shy !! My hair is greyer than yours mate so I just thought I'd share some of that hard learned wisdom.

    Fine until the second to last paragraph....HNZ has been around a couple of years and lets face it looks ok but has no real track record or history like ANZ....Yes it MAY show capital appreciation and it MAY keep giving dividends but there is no guarantee on that continuing...its a minnow and a new minnow..I certainly wouldn't be borrowing against my house on THAT either. Caveat emptor. on everything anywhere...and forever.

    HNZ have a 50% better capital ratio than ANZ and no exposure to all those hundreds of small aussie mining companies that must be starting to really struggle to service their debt with those commodities prices where they are now ...just saying.

    These bonds have been trading now for a little while and have been a good buy for those who got in on the open. Given 'normal circumstances' the biggest risk for new entrants via NZDX would seem to be that of redemption and loss of capital (ie premium paid to purchase vs face value). Interest rates have gone significantly south since these have been issued which raises the question would ANZ review and redeem at first opportunity? Perhaps none on this forum can know the answer but I would be interested for some healthy discussion on the topic. If they were redeemed early would that put ANZ in a bad light with the market in general given they may need to raise further capital as pointed out by previous posters. Also heard on the news today Aussie banks will need to increase capital even more to comply with regulators new requirements.

    And yet people are still buying..makes me think..why didn't they buy at outset? However, who can say why or why not as to others timing and or motivation. With interest rates still dropping it should keep upward pressure on new entrants. Personally I don't believe ANZ would redeem early as would certainly be a "bad look". Obviously new entrants are not thinking about some sort of early redemption or the buying would have stalled. I cant remember details about their options re early redemption. However difficult for me to understand all the intricacies of global debt markets so cannot pretend to be anything other than an interested observer with some hope that they will continue for some time to come.

    Fact is that wholesale interest rates have dropped significantly in the circa four months since this deeply subordinated unsecured Basil 3 capital compliant issue and that is reflected in the current premium they're trading at.
    Don't for a moment pretend these don't have a serious financial risk attached to them if on a global basis we have a SHTF MK2 GFC.
    The premium is further magnified by a dearth of new issues lately. All the Aussie banks are under the regulator thumb to improve their Basil 3 capital adequacy ratio's so the likelihood of ANZ redeeming these after the initial five year ? callable option is very, very low in my opinion.

    ANZ has declared themselves pretty comfortable with the new APRA capital requirements.

    http://www.asx.com.au/asxpdf/2015072...9xdw09wq6b.pdf

    But of course their idea of "manageable" may or may not involve redemption of these or any other securities.
