The Causeway Securities FTSE 100 Step Down Kick Out Plan is a maximum 7 year plan that offers potential growth of 5.75% for each year the plan runs, subject to the performance of the FTSE 100 Index.
The Plan will Kick-Out if the respective Closing Level of each 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 5.75% 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 65% of its Opening Level (representing a decline of more than 35% 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 Goldman Sachs International. If Goldman Sachs International 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.
Other Key Information

Goldman, Sachs & Co. Wertpapier GmbH (see http://www.gspriips.eu or call +442070510101 for more information)
The product provides the potential for capital growth and does not pay interest. What you will receive at the end of the term of the product is not certain and will depend on the performance of the preference shares issued by GOLDMAN SACHS (CAYMAN) LIMITED. The performance of the preference shares is in turn linked to the performance of the index FTSE 100 Index (the underlying asset). In addition, you will take the risk that some or all of the value of your investment may be lost at the end of the term of the product.
Autocall feature: If the closing price of the underlying asset on any autocall observation date is at or above the autocall barrier, the preference shares and the notes will terminate on the corresponding autocall payment date. In this case, you will receive the autocall payment shown below for each note that you hold.
Repayment at maturity: This section applies only if no autocall occurs as described above.
On maturity, for each note that you hold:
1. If the closing price of the underlying asset is at least equal to the barrier price, you will receive GBP 1,000.00; or
2. Otherwise, you will receive GBP 1,000.00 multiplied by (i) the closing price of the underlying asset divided by (ii) the strike price of the underlying asset.
The initial reference price of the underlying asset is the closing price on November 12, 2021.
The strike price is 100.00% of the initial reference price. The barrier price is 65.00% of the initial reference price.
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 early. These events are specified in the product terms and principally relate to the underlying asset, the product and the product manufacturer. The return (if any) 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.
The product is intended to be offered to retail investors who:
1. have the ability to make an informed investment decision through sufficient knowledge and understanding of the product and its specific risks and rewards, with experience of investing in and/or holding a number of similar products providing a similar market exposure;
