Risk Disclosure

ELI is not a capital preservation product. An ELI represents an investment tool structured in the form of an instrument linked to a stock option, whereby the investment return of the instrument is linked to the performance of a single stock or a basket of stocks. Changes in the price of the underlying stock or basket of stocks may affect the investment return of the ELI and its market value.  The investment return is bounded by the agreed terms of the ELI. The ELI holder will not receive more returns than the amount specified in the terms no matter the linked stock rises above the ELI holder’s expectation.  It is also possible that the holder can only get back the linked stocks.  Since stock prices can move sharply upwards or downwards in a short space of time, an investor may suffer a total loss of investment.
