The Index is market cap weighted, with weights adjusted for available share float, and covers ten economic sectors, representing approximately 80% coverage of U.S. equities. The Index is maintained by the Index Committee, a team of S&P Dow Jones Indices economists and index analysts, who meet on a monthly basis. The goal of the Index Committee is to ensure that the Index remains a leading indicator of U.S. equities, reflecting the risk and return characteristics of the broader large cap universe on an on-going basis. The Index Committee also monitors constituent liquidity to ensure efficient portfolio trading while keeping index turnover to a minimum.
|MATURITY REDEMPTION AMOUNT CALCULATION|
The amount payable on the Notes if they are automatically called by the Bank or at maturity will be calculated by the Calculation Agent in accordance with the formula below:
ii. If the Final Index Level on the Final Valuation Date is greater than the Barrier Level, the Maturity Redemption Amount will equal:
iii. If the Final Index Level on the Final Valuation Date is equal to or less than the Barrier Level, the Maturity Redemption Amount will equal:
Principal Amount + (Principal Amount x Index Return)
Autocall Level: 110% of the Initial Index Level;
Barrier Level: 70% of the Initial Index Level;
The Maturity Redemption Amount will be less than the Principal Amount invested by an investor if the Final Index Level on the Final Valuation Date is equal to or less than the Barrier Level. The return on the Notes will not reflect the total return that an investor would receive if such investor owned the securities included in the Index.
The Maturity Redemption Amount will be subject to a minimum principal repayment of $1.00 per Note. The return on the Notes will not reflect the total return that an investor would receive if such investor owned the securities included in the Index.
