Where acting as agent on behalf of a disclosed or undisclosed client in connection with the Notes, you make the foregoing confirmations and acknowledgements on behalf of yourself and your underlying client(s).

No offer or solicitation

Neither this site nor anything contained herein shall constitute an invitation or recommendation to invest or otherwise deal in, or an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy or subscribe for, any Notes.

There shall be no offer, solicitation or sale of any Notes in any jurisdiction in which such an offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful.

EU MiFID II / UK MiFIR product governance: The Prospectus, Final Terms or other issuance document(s) in connection with a series of Notes referenced on the following website may include:

(i)      a legend regarding the product governance requirements under EU Directive 2014/65/EU on markets in financial instruments, as amended (“MiFID II”) and associated laws and implementing measures (the “EU MiFID II Product Governance Requirements”); and/or

(ii)     a legend regarding the product governance requirements under (a) Regulation (EU) No 600/2014 as it forms part of domestic law by virtue of the European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018 (“EUWA”) (“UK MiFIR”); (b) the FCA Handbook Conduct of Business Sourcebook (“COBS”); and (c) the FCA Handbook Product Intervention and Product Governance Sourcebook (together, the “UK MiFIR Product Governance Requirements”).

Any such legend will outline a target market assessment made by one or more manufacturers in respect of such Notes and which channels for distribution of such Notes are appropriate. Any person subsequently offering, selling or recommending such Notes (a “distributor”) should take into consideration any such target market assessment; however, a distributor subject to the EU MiFID II Product Governance Requirements and/or the UK MiFIR Product Governance Requirements is responsible for undertaking its own target market assessment in respect of such Notes (by either adopting or refining the target market assessment made by the relevant manufacturer(s)) and determining appropriate distribution channels.

Any target market assessment is without prejudice to the requirements of any contractual or legal selling restrictions in relation to the Notes.

For the avoidance of doubt, the target market assessment for any Notes does not constitute: (a) an assessment of suitability or appropriateness for the purposes of MiFID II or UK MiFIR; or (b) a recommendation to any investor or group of investors to invest in, or purchase, or take any other action whatsoever with respect to any Notes.

EU PRIIPS regulation / prohibition of sales to EEA retail investors - unless otherwise expressly specified in relation to any series of Notes, none of the Notes are intended to be offered, sold or otherwise made available to, and they should not be offered, sold or otherwise made available to, any retail investor in the European Economic Area (“EEA”). For these purposes, a retail investor means a person who is one (or more) of: (i) a retail client as defined in point (11) of Article 4(1) of MiFID II; or (ii) a customer within the meaning of Directive (EU) 2016/97 (as amended or superseded, the “Insurance Distribution Directive”), where that customer would not qualify as a professional client as defined in point (10) of Article 4(1) of MiFID II; or (iii) not a qualified investor as defined in the EU Prospectus Regulation. Consequently, unless otherwise expressly specified in relation to any series of Notes, no key information document required by Regulation (EU) no 1286/2014, as amended (the “EU PRIIPS Regulation”) for offering or selling any Notes or otherwise making Notes available to retail investors in the EEA has been prepared and therefore offering or selling any Notes or otherwise making them available to any retail investor in the EEA may be unlawful under the EU PRIIPS Regulation.

UK PRIIPS regulation / prohibition of sales to UK retail investors - unless otherwise expressly specified in relation to any series of Notes, none of the Notes are intended to be offered, sold or otherwise made available to, and they should not be offered, sold or otherwise made available to, any retail investor in the UK. For these purposes, a retail investor means a person who is one (or more) of: (i) a retail client, as defined in point (8) of Article 2 of Regulation (EU) No 2017/565 as it forms part of domestic law by virtue of the EUWA; (ii) a customer within the meaning of the provisions of the FSMA and any rules or regulations made under the FSMA to implement Directive (EU) 2016/97, where that customer would not qualify as a professional client, as defined in point (8) of Article 2(1) of Regulation (EU) No 600/2014 as it forms part of domestic law by virtue of the EUWA; or (iii) not a qualified investor as defined in Article 2 of Regulation (EU) 2017/1129 as it forms part of domestic law by virtue of the EUWA. Consequently, unless otherwise expressly specified in relation to any series of Notes, no key information document required by Regulation (EU) no 1286/2014 as it forms part of domestic law by virtue of the EUWA (the “UK PRIIPs Regulation”) for offering or selling any Notes or otherwise making Notes available to retail investors in the UK has been prepared and therefore offering or selling any Notes or otherwise making them available to any retail investor in the UK may be unlawful under the UK PRIIPS Regulation.
