A Bonus Certificate gives the investor the potential to receive an attractive Bonus Level payment as long as during the life of the certificate the underlying never trades at or below the lower Barrier Level during the term.
If the Barrier Level is triggered, the investor does not receive the Bonus Level Payment at maturity, in this case the investor receives the price of the underlying instrument at maturity. The Bonus Certificates do not pay any income during the Term. This means, for example, that if Bonus Certificates are linked to an underlying share or ETF, the Holder will not be entitled to any dividends, distributions or other amounts paid by the Issuer of those shares or that ETF.
As with any investment that offers the potential for profit there is a corresponding potential for loss. You should appreciate and understand all of the risks before investing in this product. Please see the relevant PDS for further details.
