Cash Flow Tool

Calculate your investment income in 3 easy steps

Exchange Traded Bond units (or XTBs) provide investors with both security and a regular income stream. Our Cash Flow Tool allows you to build your own portfolio of XTBs, or choose from one of our XTB Starter Portfolios, with XTBs selected around targeted investment themes. By using this tool, you confirm your acceptance of the terms of use, including any limitation of liability and disclaimers.

Follow the 3 simple steps below to create your XTB cash flow forecast.

  • STEP 1: Click on the icons below to choose a Starter Portfolio, or build your own portfolio of up to 10 XTBs.
  • STEP 2: If you chose a Starter Portfolio, enter your investment amount, which will be allocated according to the portfolio weightings across the pre-selected XTBs. If you chose to build your own portfolio, select up to 10 XTBs from the list. Then either enter an overall investment amount to be split equally across your chosen XTBs, or select individual investment amounts for each XTB.
  • STEP 3: Calculate your cash flow.

About your results

Your results graph is interactive, showing your coupon payments for their lifetime, or across a single year. Simply click on a year on the bottom axis for the single-year view.

It also shows exact payment dates and coupon amounts. Your Cash Flow Table shows the income and capital outlay of the portfolio and net return, so you can track how your XTB portfolio will perform over time.

Emailing the cashflow tools results:

Click the "EMAIL RESULTS" button to receive a copy of your portfolio so that you always have it on hand. We’ve also included a handy option for you to send a copy to your adviser at the same time.

To buy:

When you are ready to make a purchase, contact your adviser or log on to your online broker to place your trade in the same way you do with shares.

All XTBs start with the code "YTM" and are 6-digits long. Emailing the cashflow tool results to yourself is a good way to ensure you have the correct YTM codes when you’re ready to invest.
