Hilbert Income Series: FTSE 100 EWFD Quarterly Memory Autocall : Issue 4 –  April 2022

Investment Term: Up to 10 years. However, the Plan will mature early from 29th April 2024 if certain criteria are met (see “Early Maturity” below).

Income: You will receive an income payment of 2% for each Quarterly
Measurement Date that the Closing Level of the Underlying Asset is at least equal to 80% of its Opening Level. The income is paid gross. If the Closing Level of the Underlying Asset is below 80% of its Opening Level on a Quarterly Measurement Date, no income will be paid for that quarter. However the Memory Feature means that any missed income payments are carried forward to future Quarterly Observation Dates together with the income payment due for that quarter. Once the Plan has matured, no further income
will be paid.

Early Maturity: The Plan will mature early if the Closing Level of the Underlying
Asset is at least equal to 105% of its Opening Level on any Quarterly Measurement Date from 29th April 2024. If this happens, you will receive the income payment for that quarter, and the repayment of your original investment in full at this point.

Repayment of your investment if no early maturity: If the Final Level of any of the Underlying Assets is more than 40% below its Opening Level, you will receive back significantly less than your original investment. The amount of your investment
you receive back will be reduced by the same percentage amount that the worst performing Underlying Asset has fallen in value from the Start Date.

Quarterly Measurement Date: The first Quarterly Measurement Date will be on 29th July 2022. After that, the Quarterly Measurement Dates will be the 29th of
October, January, May and July up to the Final Valuation Date. If a Quarterly Measurement Date falls on a non-Business Day, then the Closing Level of the Underlying Asset will be recorded on the next business day. The first Quarterly Measurement Date on which an early maturity could be triggered will be on 29th April 2024.

Start Date: 29th April 2022. This is the date that the Opening Levels of the Underlying Assets are recorded (the official closing levels).

Maturity Date:  17th May 2032 (11 Business Days immediately following the Final
Valuation Date, which is the date the Final Level of the Underlying
Assets are recorded).

Don’t Forget The RisksAs with all forms of investment there are risks involved. These plans do not guarantee to repay the money invested. The potential returns of the plans and repaying the money invested are linked to the level of the stock market and also depend on the financial stability of the Issuer and Counterparty Bank.

Past performance is not a guide to future performance and may not be repeated.  Investment involves risk. The performance data does not take account of the commissions and costs incurred on the issue and redemption of shares. The value of investments and the income from them may go down as well as up and investors may not get back any of the amount originally invested. Because of this, an investor is not certain to make a profit on an investment and may lose money. Exchange rate changes may cause the value of overseas investments to rise or fall.

The promotion of the plans does not constitute ‘advice’ to invest. Advice is always specific to an individual investor’s circumstances and needs, following the process of ‘know your customer’, with the aim of ensuring that any product is suitable for an investor.

As always, the recommendation and common sense approach is to consider product solutions as a portfolio, never over-exposing oneself to a point of financial pain and suffering liquidity or counterparty over exposure.

At the Best Price FS price the Hilbert Plans are certainly worthy of consideration for inclusion within investment portfolios.

We would like to thank you for your continued interest in our Investment services and look forward to receiving your continued support.

Warmest Regards.

Best Price FS Team
