Introduction to Structured Products
Structured Products offer investors the opportunity to purchase investments with exposure to a specified underlying asset class such as a basket of shares over a period which matches with their investment strategy. Structured Products have a preset formula for calculating risk and return. In other words, you know the potential risk and return from the outset of your investment.

UK Accelerated Tracker 5 (UKA5)
The new UK Accelerated Tracker 5 (UKA5) is a 6 year investment product, which aims to provide an enhanced return at maturity based on 5 times the positive performance of the FTSE 100 Index. The maximum potential return is capped at 60% (gross).
This product is also designed to return your invested capital in full as long as the FTSE 100 has not fallen by more than 40% at Maturity. If it has, capital is at risk.
The Product’s ability to pay any Gross Return and return your capital at Maturity is dependent on the ability of Societe Generale to satisfy its obligations as Issuer.

Performance of the FTSE 100 Index. The aim of the Product is to pay a gross return equivalent to 10% of the Issue Price per year, and return your initial investment at Maturity, depending on the performance of the FTSE 100 Index.
This Product is different to many investment products in that it can “Kick Out” and expire early after just one year of the Investment Term. On early expiry it will pay the Gross Return, and return the initial price of £100 per unit in full. In order for this to happen, the FTSE 100 Index must close 5% higher on any one of five annual Valuation Dates during the Investment Term. The product has been designed in conjunction with Tier One Capital, an independent Wealth Manager and specialist in Structured Products.

Structured Products may not be suitable for you. It is important that you understand their nature and risk prior to investing. If you are at all unsure, please discuss them with a qualified advisor. The price and value of investments and any income paid fluctuates and you may get back less than you invested. Many structured products do not pay an income - please check the product details before investing if income is important to you. Remember that the favourable tax status of these products may change in the future and that how an investment performed in the past is not necessarily a guide to how it will perform in the future.
