The FTSE®/STOXX Semi-Annual Super Step-Down Kick Out Plan October 2019 is a maximum 7-year 3-week investment offering a potential gross investment return of 3.25% for each 6-month period that the plan has been in force.
The capital and investment return are linked to the performance of the FTSE 100 Index and the EURO STOXX 50 Index (each 'an Index', collectively ‘the Indices’).
The Securities purchased will be issued by HSBC Bank plc.
This is a capital-at-risk Plan and the investor may lose some or all of their money if the Final Level of one or both Indices is below 65% of its Opening Level. In this case, the reduction in the money invested in the Plan at the Maturity Date will equal the same percentage that the Final Level of the lower performing Index is below its Opening Level.
If the Closing Levels of both Indices on any Measurement Date before the Final Measurement Date are at least equal to their respective Reference Levels, the Plan will kick out, i.e. mature early, and make a gross investment return for each year that the Plan has been in force.
The first Measurement Date will be on 16 December 2020 one year after the Start Date.
The Reference Levels are as follows: Measurement Date 1 at 105%; Measurement Date 2 at 105%; Measurement Date 3 at 100%; Measurement Date 4 at 100%; Measurement Date 5 at 95%; Measurement Date 6 at 95%; Measurement Date 7 at 90%; Measurement Date 8 at 90%; Measurement Date 9 at 85%; Measurement Date 10 at 85%; Measurement Date 11 at 80%; Measurement Date 12 at 80%; and Final Level at 65%.
If the Plan matures early on a Measurement Date, the gross investment return payable will be: 6.50% at Measurement Date 1; 9.75% at Measurement Date 2; 13% at Measurement Date 3; 16.25% at Measurement Date 4; 19.50% at Measurement Date 5; 22.75% at Measurement Date 6; 26% at Measurement Date 7; 29.25% at Measurement Date 8; 32.50% at Measurement Date 9; 35.75% at Measurement Date 10; 39% at Measurement Date 11 and 42.25% at Measurement Date 12.
If the Closing Levels of both Indices on any Measurement Date before the Final Measurement Date are below their respective Reference Levels, no investment return will be made, and the Plan will remain in force.
If the Final Levels of both Indices are at least equal to 65% of their respective Opening Levels, the Plan will make an investment return at the Maturity Date equal to 45.50% of the money invested in the Plan. If the Final Level of one or both Indices is below 65% of its respective Opening Level, no investment return will be payable at the Maturity Date.
It is possible that the Counterparty could collapse or fail to make the payments due from the Plan. If this happened the investor would lose some, or all, of the money they invest in the Plan, as well as any investment return to which they might otherwise have become entitled.
It is our understanding that any investment return from this Plan will be subject to Capital Gains Tax.
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.
