Further Information

The FTSE Step Down Kick-Out Plan April 2018 (BNP) is a maximum six year two week investment offering a potential gross investment return of 6.5% per annum. The capital and investment return are linked to the performance of the FTSE 100 Index.

If on any Measurement Date, before the Final Measurement Date, the closing level of the Index is at least equal to its Reference level, the Plan will mature early and make a gross investment return. If the Plan matures early on any Measurement Date, the gross investment return amount payable will be 6.5% of the money invested for each year that the Plan has been in force.

If, on a Measurement Date, before the Final Measurement Date, the closing level of the Index is below its Reference Level, no investment return will be made and the Plan will remain in force.

The Reference Levels are as follows: year 1 at 105%; year 2 at 100%; year 3 at 95%; year 4 at 90%; year 5 at 85% and year 6 (Final Level) at 80%.

If the Plan has not matured early and the Final Level of the Index is at least equal to its Reference Level, it will provide a gross investment return at the Maturity Date equal to 39% of the money invested. If the Final Level of the Index is below its Reference Level, no investment return will be payable at the Maturity Date.

Please note an additional 0.25% charge will apply to this product if you require paper-based correspondence, rather than online communications from Meteor Asset Management.
