Waxson Financial Services (WFS) has launched a new product, WFS Treasury Plus Investment (TPI), to offer good returns for investors.

WFS Treasury Plus Investment TPI is a Government of Ghana Treasury bill market-link instrument to offer higher potential yields than traditional fixed income investment with similar maturities. It offers 10% above GoG Treasury Bill rate or 12% if inflation increases above 25% of the prevailing rate.

“Our TPI is an inflation sensitive product and provides a unique opportunity to take advantage of superior yields while providing principal and interest protection for conservative investors”, Mr. Korsi Dzokoto, Chief Executive Officer of WFS said.

“In order to protect your privacy with regards to your investment, we commit to the highest standards of confidentiality in managing your investment. Annual accrual compound interest is paid at maturity. “Our TPIs are designed for investors looking to manage investment risk in order to protect wealth, as well as provide guaranteed higher returns”.

The minimum investment amount for the individuals under the WFS Treasury Plus Investment (TPI) is GH¢ 10,000.00 and GH¢ 20,000.00 for institutions.

Fiduciary Money - Money that depends for its value on confidence that it is an accepted medium of exchange. It originated as a paper certificate that was a promise to pay a certain amount of gold or silver to the bearer. From the Latin fiducia meaning confidence or trust.

A general fall in price levels caused by a decline in the supply of money or credit or by a fall in demand and spending. Individuals and companies will postpone making purchases in the expectation of lower prices in future. It can lead to severe economic recession and to high levels of unemployment. Central banks may respond by cutting official interest rates close to zero and increasing the money supply in an attempt to stimulate an increase in prices.

PARI PASSU - Securities issued with a pari passu clause have rights and privileges that are the same as those of existing securities of the same class. Pari passu means 'with equal step' in Latin.

ROCE (%) - rate of return on the capital employed - is another useful comparison tool that measures a company's profitability. It is calculated as earnings divided by net assets (assets minus debts). Generally, the higher the figure the better and it is best used to compare companies from the same industry sectors. An oil company, for example, will have higher capital outlay than an online retailer.

[11/04/13]   |A to of Z|
PEG FACTOR (X) - This is another measurement of value and investors should look at price to earnings to growth, known as PEG factor or ratio. This measure a company's value at present against how quickly it may grow in the future. It is calculated by dividing the PE ratio by forecast EPS growth. So a company with a PE of 20 and expected earnings growth of 10% would have a PEG of two. As with PE ratios, the lower the PEG the cheaper the shares.

EPS (UNDILUTED) - this is an important ratio for showing how much profit after tax and other deductions (net profit) is actually being earned per share. You divide the net profit by the number of shares in issue. It is usually expressed as x pence per share. Looking at whether the EPS is rising or falling over time is one of the most important indicators of whether a company is really making money for its shareholders. (Undiluted means that exceptional costs have not been included.)

[10/30/13]   |A to of Z|

PE RATIO - The price to earnings ratio is a way of gauging whether a company's share price is cheap or expensive compared to similar companies in the same sector. You get the PE by dividing the share price by the earnings per share (EPS) figure. For example, Company X with an EPS of 5p and a share price of 250p would have a PE of 50. Investors are prepared to pay more for shares whose earnings they think are going to rise strongly, so demand pushes the share price up. But if the EPS doesn't rise proportionately, the company's PE will rise. So if Company X's share price rose to 400p, but its EPS remained at 5p, the PE would rocket to 80. A high PE can indicate a high-growth company, but it can also indicate that the company's earnings have taken a sudden, maybe temporary hit. Generally the PE ratio is seen as a kind of barometer of confidence in a company's prospects.

TYPES OF DEBT INSTRUMENTS

In this post we will understand two types: loan and bonds.

LOAN – A loan is the simplest form of debt. It is the most easily understood one. It involves an agreement to lend a principal amount for a fixed period of time. At the end of the period, the principal amount is repaid with interest. In certain kind of loans which are for more than a year, interest is required to be paid on a periodic basis till it is repaid. In some other forms, the borrowed amount is repaid in equal installments (monthly or yearly) over a period of time. Loans can be classified in two ways-

SECURED

SECURED LOAN- A loan where borrower pledges some asset as the collateral for the loan.

MORTGAGE LOAN – These are borrowings meant specifically to buy certain asset like home or a vehicle. This is very common among individuals who want to purchase a house. The amount borrowed is used to buy a house, and the lender is given security in the form of lien on the title of the house. In case borrower defaults on repayment, the lender has a legal right to recover money selling the house.

UNSECURED LOAN – These do not have any assets attached as security for the lender. Examples are credit card, personal loan, bank over drafts. Individuals use this form of borrowing for many purposes. Examples – Individuals take loan from Banks to buy house (home loan). Credit cards to buy goods and repay after a period of time. Employees take loan from employers to pay deposit to take house on rent.

BONDS- Bond is a debt issued in the form of a Security. The transaction remains similar to that of a Loan except that in case of a bond a security is created and hence, the terminology changes. The borrower is known as issuer. The lender becomes the investor and interest becomes the coupon. These are used by businesses or government to borrow money from investors. The government, financial institutions, public sector units, private sector companies, banks and non banking finance companies all need to borrow money for various purposes. They borrow money by issuing debt securities (bonds) to investors.

UNDERSTANDING THE PROCESS

Issuer borrows amount from investors and issues then a financial instrument known as a bond against the borrowing.
Bond usually has a standard denomination, like GH¢100.00. Every bond represents that the issuer has borrowed GH¢100.00 which is repayable as per the conditions of issue of the bond. These conditions normally include time of repayment, interest rate of borrowing, frequency of interest payment and manner of repayment of the principal amount. This standard denomination is known by many ways like the face value par value or the principal value of the bond.

Interest is calculated on the face value (amount borrowed). Interest is paid either on periodic basis (coupon bearing bonds) or on maturity (zero-coupon).
The principal amount is normally repaid by the issuer on the maturity date. This kind of bonds is called as bonds having “bullet” maturity. There can be bonds which provide for payment of principal amount in a phased manner, mostly equally spread over last few years of the tenure of the borrowing. Such bonds are called as mortising bonds.
