MB Structured Investments UK/US Defensive Kick Out Plan – November 2023 – BA8016
You will lose money if the Final Level of the worst performing Index is below 65% of its Opening Level. The amount of your money that you would lose will be the percentage by which the Final Level of the Index is below its Opening Level. In extreme circumstances you could lose all of your money. If the Final Level of the Index is at least equal to 65% of its Opening Level you will get back the amount you invested.
The plan starts on the Start Date. On a Measurement Date, if the levels of the Indices are at or above a defined percentage of their Start Level, the plan will end and pay Growth equal to 10.10% of the money invested for every year the plan has been in force. This is called a Kick Out and the barrier level is called the Kick Out Barrier. The first date this can happen is one year after the start date.
If the plan never Kicks Out and reaches the End Date, the Indices will be measured for the last time. If the End Levels of the Indices are at or above 85% of their respective Start Levels, the plan will pay Growth equal to 50.50% of the money invested, otherwise, no Growth will be achieved.
The Securities purchased will be Notes issued by Barclays Bank plc. These Securities can be viewed in a similar way to a loan to the Issuer and are linked to the performance of Preference Shares of a Special Purpose Vehicle company – Teal Investments Limited, which is in turn linked to the performance of the Index.
It is possible that the Counterparty could collapse or fail to make the payments due from the Plan. If this happened, the investor would lose some, or all, of the money they invest in the Plan, as well as, any income payments to which they might otherwise have become entitled.
It is MB Structured Investment’s understanding that any income payments from a direct investment by individuals or Trusts into this Plan are expected to be subject to Capital Gains Tax.

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 underlyings. 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 worst performing underlying has fallen below its 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 observation date, the reference level of the worst performing underlying 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) in 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 level of the worst performing underlying is at or above its barrier level, a cash payment equal to GBP 1; or
2. if the final reference level of the worst performing underlying is below its barrier level, a cash payment directly linked to the performance of the worst performing underlying. The cash payment will equal (i) the product notional amount multiplied by (ii) (A) the final reference level of the worst performing underlying divided by (B) its 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.
