Launch Series 43 – Key Risks

Key risks include:

  • Your return (including any Coupon) is affected by the performance of the Reference Asset. There is no guarantee that the Reference Asset will perform well.
  • In the Event that an appropriate hedge cannot be achieved in relation to all or some of the Underlying’s comprising the Reference Asset, the Issuer may choose to remove the Underlying or replace the Underlying with a similar fund in its absolute discretion. Any changes will be notified on the Issuers website and in correspondence to Investors.
  • The Units have varying levels of exposure to the Reference Asset depending on volatility due to the variable Participation Rate. It operates by varying the exposure that the Units will have to the Reference Asset depending on the Realised Volatility of the Reference Asset and the Target Volatility. There is the risk that the Participation Rate could drop below 100% during the Investment Term in which case Investors will not gain the full benefits of an increase of the value of the Reference Asset.
  • Investors should note that there is a lag in measuring the Realised Volatility of the Reference Asset.  This means that where there has been a period of high Realised Volatility, the Investor’s exposure to the Reference Asset will be low, regardless of whether the Reference Asset is performing positively or negatively.
  • There will be no Performance Coupon payable if the performance of the Strategy Value is negative at a Coupon Determination Date.
  • There is no guarantee that the Units will generate returns in excess of the Prepaid Interest, Risk Management Fee and other Fees, during the Investment Term. Additionally, in the event of an Investor requested Issuer Buy-Back, 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.
