Westpac has released the prospectus for its Capital Notes 5 offer, which is expected to open on 13 February and raise approximately $750 million.

Westpac's latest tier 1 capital vehicle, Westpac Capital Notes 5, will open to investors on 13 February.

The hybrid security is expected to have a margin of between 3.2 and 3.4 per cent above the 90-day bank bill rate.

Eligible Westpac CPS holders will be given an opportunity to reinvest all of their existing securities into Westpac Capital Notes 5.

The closing date for the offer is expected to be 6 March 2018.
