The Causeway Securities ESG Green Bond Step Down Kick Out Plan is a maximum 7 year plan that offers potential growth of 7% for each year the plan runs, subject to the performance of the Solactive Climate Change Europe BTI PR Index (SBTICCPE)
The Plan will Kick-Out if the respective Closing Level of the Underlying Asset, on any Observation Date from end of Year 2, is at or above the Kick Out Level. In this event an investor will receive their Initial Capital back, plus a Potential Investment Return of 7% for each year that the Plan has been in existence. The first Observation Date on which an early maturity could be triggered will be two years after the Start Date.
If on the Final Observation Date the Closing Level of the Underlying Asset is less than 60% of its Opening Level (representing a decline of more than 40% from the Opening Level), your Initial Capital will be lost at a rate of 1% for every 1% that the Final Level of the Underlying Asset is below its Opening Level.
The Counterparty of the Securities is Barclays Bank plc. If Barclays Bank plc were to fail or become insolvent, you could lose some or all of your investment and any return that may be due, irrespective of the performance of the Underlying Asset.
Subject to a minimum investment of £10,000, the Plan is available to: Direct Investment; ISA/ISA Transfers; Pensions; Companies; Trusts; Charities.
It is Causeway Securities understanding of current legislation and known HMRC practice that any investment return from a direct investment by individuals or Trusts into this Plan is expected to be subject to Capital Gains Tax. Investors should obtain their own tax advice.

The issuer intends to use the net proceeds from this product to finance and/or refinance green projects including: (1) energy efficiency, (2) renewable energy, (3) sustainable transport, (4) sustainable food, agriculture, forestry, aquaculture and fisheries, and (5) resource efficiency and pollution control (these will be considered eligible assets).
This product is linked to the underlying which has been selected in accordance with the issuer’s ‘green index selection principles’. The product is designed to provide a return in the form of a cash payment on termination of the product. The timing and amount of this payment will depend on the change in value of the preference shares, which in turn will depend on the performance of the underlying. The product has a fixed term and will terminate on the maturity date, unless terminated early. If, at maturity, the final reference level of the underlying has fallen below the barrier level, the product may return less than the product notional amount or even zero.
Early termination following an autocall: The product will terminate prior to the maturity date if, on any autocall observ ation date, the reference lev el is at or above the relevant autocall barrier level. On any such early termination, you will on the immediately following autocall payment date receive a cash payment equal to the applicable autocall payment. The relevant dates, autocall barrier levels and autocall payments are shown in the table(s) on the key information document.
Termination on the maturity date: If the product has not terminated early, on the maturity date you will receive:
1. if the final reference lev el is at or above the barrier level, a cash payment equal to GBP 1; or
2. if the final reference lev el is below the barrier level, a cash payment directly linked to the performance of the underlying. The cash payment will equal (i) the product notional amount multiplied by (ii) (A) the final reference level divided by (B) the strike level.
Investors should note that the payments described above are based on the expected value of the preference shares. Therefore any return you may receive on the product depends directly on the value of the preference shares. As such, your return is only indirectly dependent on the underlying.
Under the product terms, certain dates specified above and below will be adjusted if the respective date is either not a business day or not a trading day (as applicable). Any adjustments may affect the return, if any, you receive. The product terms also provide that if certain exceptional events occur (1) adjustments may be made to the product and/or (2) the product issuer may terminate the product, as applicable, early. These events are specified in the product terms and principally relate to the product and the product issuer. The preference shares in turn contain provisions allowing the preference shares to be adjusted or terminated early in the case of certain exceptional events, in particular relating to the underlying. Any such adjustments or early termination are likely to affect the amount and timing of return you receive under the product, meaning the return (if any) that you receive on such early termination is likely to be different from the scenarios described above and may be less than the amount you invested.
For display purposes numbers within this document have been cut off at 4 decimal places.
