The FTSE STOXX Defensive Step Down Kick Out Plan 13 (UK 4 option) is designed to repay your initial investment and deliver a return dependent on the performance of the FTSE 100 and EURO STOXX 50.
Potential for maturity at the end of years 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 or 8 with a fixed payment equal to 7.25% per annum (not compounded), if both the FTSE 100 and EURO STOXX 50 are higher than a specified percentage of their starting levels.
The Reference Levels are as follows: year 2 at 100%; year 3 at 100%; year 4 at 100%; year 5 at 95%, year 6 at 90%, year 7 at 85% and year 8 (Final Level) at 65%
If the Plan continues to the end of year 8, the closing levels of the FTSE 100 and EURO STOXX are used to calculate the Final Index Level, as explained below:
- If both the Final Index Levels of the FTSE 100 and EURO STOXX 50 are higher than 65% of their respective Initial Index Levels, you will receive back your initial investment plus 43.5%.
- If either Final Index Level is equal to or lower than 65% of its Initial Index Level, you will receive back your initial investment with no return.
- If either Final Index Level is lower than 60% of its Initial Index Level then your initial investment will be reduced by 1% for every 1% fall (including partial percentages) in the worst performing index. For example if the Final Index Level of the FTSE 100 has fallen by 50% from its Initial Index Level, and the Final Index Level of the EURO STOXX 50 has fallen by 20% from its Initial Index Level then your initial investment will be reduced by 50%.
This Plan is comprised of Securities which are issued by SG Issuer (the Issuer), a subsidiary of Societe Generale, and guaranteed by Societe Generale (the Guarantor).
This Plan is collateralised in order to reduce the risk of potential loss to your investment should Societe Generale fail or become insolvent. Instead, the risk to your investment will be dependent on whether any of the four named UK institutions; the UK Four, (Aviva plc, Barclays Bank plc, HSBC Bank plc and Lloyds Bank plc) experience a Credit Event.
This FTSE STOXX Defensive Step Down Kick Out Plan 13 (UK 4 option) has been designed for clients who are looking for equity-linked returns over an 8 year period, but can accommodate receiving their money back before the end of the term. The payoff profile has been designed to suit clients who are cautious on equity market growth. Clients are likely to have a medium to high attitude to risk and be prepared to risk their capital in order to potentially achieve higher returns. This product is aimed at clients who can understand a more complex product and have a higher attitude to risk when compared to a single index equivalent. This product is aimed at a more market cautious client who has high financial sophistication.
All investments carry risk. It is identifying those risks, understanding how they may affect an investment and assessing whether an investment is suitable for your circumstances that is important.
