The MB Structured Investments UK/US Quarterly Conditional Income Plan is a maximum 5 year 3 week investment that offers potential quarterly income of 2.1625%. The income and return of your original capital is dependent on the performance of the underlying indices.
You will lose money if the Final Level of the lower 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 that Index is below its Opening Level. In extreme circumstances you could lose all of your money. If the Final Level of the lower performing Index is at least equal to 65% of its Opening Level you will get back the amount you invested.
If the Closing Levels of both Indices on any Quarterly Measurement Date are at least equal to 80% of their respective Opening Levels, the Plan will pay a gross income of 2.1625% for that quarter. No income will be payable for a quarter if the Closing Level of one, or both, Indices is below 80% of its Opening Level on the Quarterly Measurement Date.
The first Quarterly Measurement Date will be three months after the Start Date. Thereafter, the performance of the Indices will be measured quarterly. If the kick-out condition is met (see below), income will be paid in respect of that quarter and the Plan will mature early. No further income payments will then be payable.
From year 2, the Plan will kick-out, i.e. mature early, if the Closing Levels of both Indices are at or above 100% of their respective Opening Levels on any Quarterly Measurement Date. In this event you would receive a full return of your money, as well as the income due for that quarter. The first Quarterly Measurement Date on which an early maturity could be triggered will be two years after the Start Date.
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, which is in turn linked to the performance of the Indices.
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 Income Tax..

The product is designed to provide a return in the form of (1) conditional interest payments and (2) a cash payment on termination of the product. The timing and amount of these payments 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 its autocall barrier level. On any such early termination, you will on the immediately following autocall payment date receive, in addition to any final interest payment, a cash payment equal to the autocall payment of GBP 1. No interest payments will be made on any date after such autocall payment date. The relevant dates are shown in the table(s) in the key information document.
Interest: If the product has not terminated early, on each interest payment date you will receive an interest payment of GBP 0.021625 if the reference level of the worst performing underlying is at or above its interest barrier level on the immediately preceding interest observation date. If this condition is not met, you will receive no interest payment on such interest payment date. The relevant dates 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:
- 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
- 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.
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 early. These events are specified in the product terms and principally relate to the underlying, the product and the product issuer. 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.
When purchasing this product during its lifetime, the purchase price may include accrued interest on a pro rata basis.
The product is intended to be offered to retail investors who fulfil all of the criteria below:

Is the MB Structured Investments UK/US Quarterly Conditional Income Plan right for me?
A typical investor who invests in this Plan will:
♦ Be either an Informed or Advanced Investor, with appropriate knowledge and experience of equity- based investments;
♦ Like investments that provide known returns based on pre-determined market outcomes;
♦ Want the potential to secure an investment return above that available from a deposit-based investment and acknowledge and accept the level of risk, identified by the Summary Risk Indicator set out in the Key Information Document (KID);
♦ Be willing and able to tie up their money for the term of the Plan for the objective of producing income;
♦ Accept that they would lose money and be able to afford to do so;
♦ Understand that in the event of a loss that this loss would be at least 35% of the money they put into the Plan, and could be considerably more, and in extreme circumstances they could lose all of their money;
♦ Know that the level of the Indices can fall but do not expect the fall to be more than 35% of their Opening Levels at the Final Measurement Date;
♦ Appreciate the importance of having a spread of investments to reduce concentration risk;
♦ Know and accept that inflation reduces the real value of money and what it can buy;
♦ Understand that equity markets are affected by economic and political events nationally and globally;
♦ Accept that if the Counterparty defaults they could lose all their money and any investment return and that they would not have any recourse to the FSCS.
