As with any investment, there are risks associated with a Macquarie Tailored Equity Collar, including:

  • Performance risk: The value of securities may go down by a material amount, even over a short period of time.
  • Borrowing to invest: Leverage can magnify gains and losses on an investment.
  • Breakeven risk: To make a profit on your investment, the total value of any gains (subject to any applicable cap) and any distributions from your investment throughout its term will need to exceed your total interest payments and other costs, including break costs.
  • Early termination risk: Macquarie may terminate your Tailored Equity Collar investment early in certain circumstances or you may choose to terminate the investment early. In these circumstances, you may need to pay any break costs, interest charges, fees and other costs that may apply, which may be substantial. Additionally, loan principal protection only applies at maturity, and does not apply if either you or Macquarie terminate the investment early.
  • Insolvency risk: If Macquarie fails to perform its obligations, for example if it becomes insolvent, you may not receive a payment which you are entitled to receive.
