Key risks

The key risks include:

  • Your return (including any Performance Coupons) is affected by the performance of the Reference Asset. There is no guarantee that the Reference Asset will perform well.
  • There will be no Performance Coupon payable if the performance of the Reference Asset is negative at the relevant Coupon Determination Date.
  • The potential Performance Coupons are determined by reference to the Reference Asset Performance on the relevant Coupon Determination Date and deducting any past Performance Coupons paid.
  • Any Performance Coupons payable will be negatively impacted by any increase in the AUD/USD exchange rate between the Commencement Date and the relevant Coupon Determination Date.
  • There is no guarantee that the Units will generate returns in excess of the Prepaid Interest and Fees, during the Investment Term. Additionally, in the event of an Investor requested Issuer Buy-Back or Early Maturity Event, you will not receive a refund of your Prepaid Interest or Fees.
  • Gains (and losses) may be magnified by the use of a 100% Loan. However, note that the Loan is a limited recourse Loan, so you can never lose more than your Prepaid Interest Amount and Fees paid at Commencement.
  • Investors are subject to counterparty credit risk with respect to the Issuer and the Hedge Counterparty; and
  • the Units may mature early following an Early Maturity Event, including an Adjustment Event, Market Disruption Event or if the Issuer accepts your request for an Issuer Buy-Back.

Please refer to Section 4 “Key Risks” of the Term Sheet PDS and Section 2 “Risks” of the Master PDS for more information.
