Westpac Capital Notes 3

Westpac have just launched their latest fixed income hybrid investment at an indicative rate of 4%-4.2% over the Bank Bill Swap Rate (BBSW).

Since our analysis just over a year ago where we highlighted our concerns over low rates offered on hybrids, spreads have widened considerably and banks have been asked to hold more capital on their books. This is good news for investors looking to invest in hybrids as they’re being offered a greater return with more security.

CBA has been the butt of many jokes since issuing Perls VI at a fat margin of 3.8%, but with the recent widening of hybrid spreads again they’re at last being offered some reprieve. Westpac’s issue (likely to be at 4% over the BBSW), will take over the mantle of offering the highest running yield of any of the Big 4.

With volatility once again returning to the markets, interest rates tipped to fall further and retirees chasing income, we feel the fat margins are not likely to be around for too long and offers value to hybrid investors. This issue is likely to close early at the bottom end of the indicative range of 4.0%-4.20% over the BBSW (indicative rate of 6.14%-6.34%pa – 28/07/15).
