The Meteor FTSE Step Down Kick Out Plan is a maximum five year three week investment offering a potential gross return of 8.35% (option 1) or 8.20% (option 2) for each year the plan runs, subject to the performance of the FTSE 100 index.
Repayment of Capital;
Option 1: You will lose money if the Final Level of the Index is below 65% of its Opening Level. 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.
Option 2: You will lose money if the Final Level of the Index is below 60% of its Opening Level. If the Final Level of the Index is at least equal to 60% of its Opening Level you will get back the amount you invested.
In both cases, 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.
For both options: The first Measurement Date will be two years after the Start Date. If the Closing Level of the Index on any Measurement Date before the Final Measurement Date is at least equal to its Reference Level the Plan will kick out, i.e. mature early, and make a gross investment return.
For Option 1 The investment return, if triggered, would be 8.35% of the money you invest for each year that the Plan has been in force.
For Option 2 The investment return, if triggered, would be 8.20% of the money you invest for each year that the Plan has been in force.
If the Plan has not matured early, and the Closing Level of the Index on the Final Measurement Date (the ‘Final Level’) is at least equal to its Reference Level, the Plan will provide an investment return at the Maturity Date equal to:
♦ 41.75% of the money you invest for Option 1
♦ 41% of the money you invest for Option 2
If the Final Level of the Index is below its Reference Level, neither option will provide an investment return at the Maturity Date.

The Securities can be viewed in a similar way to a loan to the Issuer and are linked to the performance of Preference Shares issued by BNP Paribas Synergy Limited, which is in turn linked to the performance of the Index.

This certificate provides a return which depends on the performance over the lifetime of the certificate of an underlying redeemable preference share issued by BNP Paribas Synergy Limited the value of which is in turn linked to the performance of an underlying share and/or index or basket of shares and/or indices. The description below is therefore based on the expected value of such preference share however the real return will depend on the actual value of the preference share.
The objective of this product is to provide you with a return based on the performance of an underlying index. This product has a fixed term and will redeem on the Redemption Date unless redeemed early in accordance with the Automatic Early Redemption provisions below.

Is the Meteor FTSE Step Down Kick Out Plan (BNP Paribas) right for me?
A typical investor who invests in this Plan will:
♦ Be 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 capital growth;
♦ Accept that they could 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% (Option1) or 40% (Option 2) of the money they put into the Plan, and could be considerably more, and in extreme circumstances they could lose all of their money;
♦ Understand that any investment return is dependent on the performance of the Indices, which is calculated on set dates, and accept they might not get any investment return at all;
♦ Know that the level of the Index can fall but do not expect the fall to be more than 35% (option 1) or 40% (option 2) of its Opening Level at the Final Measurement Date;

♦ Know and accept that inflation reduces the real value of money and what it can buy;
