The Bank of Nova Scotia Principal Protected Notes (PPNs)


BNS Principal Protected Notes are deposit notes issued by the Bank of Nova Scotia with returns linked to a variety of underlying assets. As with all other deposits issued by the Bank, an investors principal amount is 100% guaranteed by the Bank at the maturity date of their investment. Principal Protected Notes typically offer the potential for variable returns in excess of traditional bonds based on the performance of the underlying assets. Potential assets include equities, equity indices, interest rates, commodities, currencies or mutual funds. These variable returns may be combined with fixed coupon payments and may be paid during the life of the investment or as a lump sum payment at maturity.

BNS Principal Protected Notes can be customized to meet investor requirements for term, underlying assets, payout features or currency.

To determine if BNS Principal Protected Notes are suitable for your investment needs and objectives, please consult with an investment professional.


The Bank of Nova Scotia Principal at Risk Notes (PaRs)


BNS Principal at Risk Notes are issued by the Bank of Nova Scotia with returns linked to a variety of underlying assets. Principal at Risk Notes do not guarantee repayment of an investors principal amount at maturity. Instead, investors can gain the potential for variable returns in excess of traditional bonds based on the performance of the underlying assets. Potential assets include equities, equity indices, bonds, commodities, currencies, exchange traded funds or mutual funds. The variable returns of Principal at Risk Notes are generally enhanced by putting some, or all, of an investors principal at risk, based on the performance of the underlying assets during the life of the note.

BNS Principal at Risk Notes can be customized to meet investor requirements for term, underlying assets, payout features or currency.
