  • Example Calculation

    The participation ratio is the options amount per unit share and it is calculated by dividing the remaining amount to be used in buying options by the options price. This ratio indicates the investor's participation ratio in the potential earnings of the fund.

    For example; if a TL 100 fund invests TL 90 in government bonds and purchases options with the remaining TL 10, given that options price is TL 20, the participation ratio would be 10/20 = 50%. By multiplying potential earnings by 50%, the amount to be earned in addition to the principal is found.

    Performance = [USD/TL (Value at Maturity) / USD/TL (Starting Value)] – 1

    Gross Value at Maturity = Principal (100%) + [Participation Ratio x  if Performance > 0, then Performance; if Performance < 0, then 0)

    Example 1USD/TLExplanation
    Starting Amount 1,5000

    At maturity, the USD/TL parity increases by %27. In this case, the return of the USD/TL parity will be multiplied by the participation ratio, and the amount will be added on top of the principal and given to the investor.  The investor's return will be subject to a 10% stoppage tax.

     

    Gross Value at Maturity = 100% + (27%x50%) = 113%

     

    Return After Tax = 13%x (90%) = 12%

    Amount at Maturity 1,9000
    Return 27 %
    Participation Ratio* 50 %
    Tax 10 %

    Example 2USD/TLExplanation
    Starting Amount 1,5000

    At maturity, the USD/TL parity is equal to the starting value. As the rate of return is 0%, the right side of the equitation will be “0” and the investor will only get the principal. As there is no return, no stoppage tax will be applied.

     

    Gross Value at Maturity = 100% + (0% x 50%) = 100%

    Amount at Maturity 1,5000
    Return 0 %
    Participation Ratio* 10 %
    Tax 10 %

    Example 3USD/TLExplanation
    Starting Amount 1,5000

    At maturity, the USD/TL parity decreases. As the rate of return is a negative value, the right side of the equitation will be 0 and the investor will only get the principal. As there is no return, no stoppage tax will be applied.

     

    Gross Value at Maturity = 100% + (0% x 50%) = 100%

    Amount at Maturity 1,2000
    Return - 20 %
    Participation Ratio* 50 %
    Tax 10 %

    * The participation ratio is fixed for the maturity date and may change over the course of the fund based on the market variables. The actual participation ratio will be announced after the fund portfolio is established.
