Product Summary

iPath® Optimized Currency Carry ETN 

The iPath® Optimized Currency Carry ETNs (the "ETNs") are designed to provide exposure to the Barclays Optimized Currency Carry IndexTM (the "Index").  The ETNs are riskier than ordinary unsecured debt securities and have no principal protection.  The ETNs are unsecured debt obligations of the issuer, Barclays Bank PLC, and are not, either directly or indirectly, an obligation of or guaranteed by any third party.  Any payment to be made on the ETNs, including any payment at maturity or upon redemption, depends on the ability of Barclays Bank PLC to satisfy its obligations as they come due.  An investment in the ETNs involves significant risks, including possible loss of principal, and may not be suitable for all investors.

The Index is designed to reflect the total return of an "Intelligent Carry Strategy," which, through an objective and systematic methodology, seeks to capture the returns that are potentially available from a strategy of investing in high-yielding currencies with the exposure financed by borrowings in low-yielding currencies sometimes referred to as the "carry trade." The pool of currencies to which the Index may apply these strategies is commonly referred to as the "G10 currencies" and includes the U.S. dollar, the euro, the Japanese yen, the Canadian dollar, the Swiss franc, the British pound sterling, the Australian dollar, the New Zealand dollar, the Norwegian krone and the Swedish krona.  Owning the ETNs is not the same as owning interests in the index components included in the Index or a security directly linked to the performance of the Index. For additional information regarding the risks associated with the ETNs, please see "Selected Risk Considerations" below.

The performance quoted represents past performance and does not guarantee future results. Investment return and principal value of an investment will fluctuate so that an investment, when sold or redeemed may be worth more or less than the original cost. Current performance may be lower or higher than the performance quoted. See additional information below for how return figures are calculated. PAST PERFORMANCE IS NOT INDICATIVE OF FUTURE RESULTS

  1. Intraday Indicative Value.  The "intraday indicative value" meant to approximate the value of the ETNs during the current trading day by reference to the underlying index is calculated and published during the course of each trading day.  The intraday indicative value is intended to provide investors with an approximation of the effect that intraday changes in the level of the underlying index would have on the closing indicative value of the ETNs.  The intraday indicative value only reflects the accrued investor fee and other applicable costs at the close of business on the preceding day, but does not include any adjustment for the investor fee or applicable costs accruing during the course of the current day.  For more information on how the intraday indicative value is calculated, please see the section "Valuation of the ETNs" in the prospectus relating to the ETNs.
    The intraday indicative value is provided for reference purposes only. It is not intended as a price or quotation, or as an offer or solicitation for the purchase, sale, redemption or termination of the ETNs, nor does it reflect hedging or transaction costs, credit considerations, market liquidity, or bid-offer spreads. Published index levels from the sponsors of the indices underlying the ETNs may occasionally be subject to delay or postponement. Any such delays or postponements will affect the level of the index and therefore the intraday indicative value of the ETNs. Index levels provided by the sponsors of the indices underlying the ETNs do not necessarily reflect the depth and liquidity of the underlying markets for the index components. For this reason and others, the actual trading price of the ETNs may be different from their intraday indicative value.
  2. The investor fee rate per ETN is equal to 0.65% per year:  The investor fee on the inception date was equal to zero. On each subsequent calendar day until maturity or early redemption, the investor fee will equal to (1) 0.65% times (2) the principal amount of your ETNs times (3) the applicable index factor on that day (or, if such day is not a trading day, the index factor on the immediately preceding trading day) divided by (4) 365.  The index factor on any given day will be equal to the closing level of the Index on that day divided by the initial index level.  The initial index level is the closing level of the Index on the inception date.  
  3. Market Capitalization = Closing Indicative Note Value x ETNs Outstanding.

An investment in the iPath ETNs described herein (the "ETNs") involves risks, including possible loss of principal, and may not be suitable for all investors.  Selected risks are summarized here and select product specific risk factors are summarized under "Select Risk Considerations" on the relevant product pages, but we urge you to read the more detailed explanation of risks described under "Risk Factors" in the applicable product prospectus.

You May Lose Some or All of Your Principal: The ETNs are exposed to any decrease in the level of the underlying index between the inception date and the applicable valuation date. Additionally, if the level of the underlying index is insufficient to offset the negative effect of the investor fee and other applicable costs, you will lose some or all of your investment at maturity or upon redemption, even if the value of such index level has increased or decreased, as the case may be. Because the ETNs are subject to an investor fee and other applicable costs, the return on the ETNs will always be lower than the total return on a direct investment in the index components. The ETNs are riskier than ordinary unsecured debt securities and have no principal protection.

Credit of Barclays Bank PLC: The ETNs are unsecured debt obligations of the issuer, Barclays Bank PLC, and are not, either directly or indirectly, an obligation of or guaranteed by any third party.  Any payment to be made on the ETNs, including any payment at maturity or upon redemption, depends on the ability of Barclays Bank PLC to satisfy its obligations as they come due.  As a result, the actual and perceived creditworthiness of Barclays Bank PLC will affect the market value, if any, of the ETNs prior to maturity or redemption.  In addition, in the event Barclays Bank PLC were to default on its obligations, you may not receive any amounts owed to you under the terms of the ETNs.

Currency Carry Risk:  Because the carry trade involves investing in high-yielding currencies with the exposure financed by borrowings in low-yielding currencies, the success of the Intelligent Carry Strategy, the level of the underlying index and the market value of the ETNs will depend on the exchange rates and interest rates applicable to the index constituent currencies.  If the applicable exchange rates or interest rates move against the direction targeted by the Intelligent Carry Strategy, the level of the index, and the market value of the ETNs, will decline.  Factors that may contribute to volatile fluctuations in the index include exchange rates applicable to the index constituent currencies, interest rates applicable to the constituent currencies, the prevailing interest rate environment, and global or regional economic, financial, political, regulatory, geographical or judicial events that affect exchange rates and interest rates.

Market and Volatility Risk:  The market value of the ETNs may be influenced by many unpredictable factors and may fluctuate between the date you purchase them and the maturity date or redemption date. You may also sustain a significant loss if you sell your ETNs in the secondary market.  Factors that may influence the market value of the ETNs include prevailing market prices of the U.S. stock or foreign exchange markets, the index components included in the underlying index, and prevailing market prices of options on such index or any other financial instruments related to such index; and supply and demand for the ETNs, including economic, financial, political, regulatory, geographical or judicial events that affect the level of such index or other financial instruments related to such index.

A Trading Market for the ETNs May Not Develop: Although the ETNs are listed on a U.S. national securities exchange, a trading market for the ETNs may not develop and the liquidity of the ETNs may be limited, as we are not required to maintain any listing of the ETNs.

No Interest Payments from the ETNs: You may not receive any interest payments on the ETNs.

Restrictions on the Minimum Number of ETNs and Date Restrictions for Redemptions: You must redeem at least 50,000 ETNs of the same series at one time in order to exercise your right to redeem your ETNs on any redemption date.  You may only redeem your ETNs on a redemption date if we receive a notice of redemption from you by certain dates and times as set forth in the product prospectus.

Uncertain Tax Treatment: Significant aspects of the tax treatment of the ETNs are uncertain. You should consult your own tax advisor about your own tax situation.

Barclays Bank PLC has filed a registration statement (including a prospectus) with the SEC for the offering to which this communication relates.  Before you invest, you should read the prospectus and other documents Barclays Bank PLC has filed with the SEC for more complete information about the issuer and this offering.  You may get these documents for free by visiting www.iPathETN.com or EDGAR on the SEC website at www.sec.gov.  Alternatively, Barclays Bank PLC will arrange for Barclays Capital Inc. to send you the prospectus if you request it by calling 212-528-7990, or you may request a copy from any other dealer participating in the offering.

ETN Closing Indicative Note Value Returns
ETN closing indicative note value returns show the change in the closing indicative value of the ETNs over the relevant period, expressed as a percentage. The closing indicative note value of an ETN is an amount per ETN calculated on each valuation date that reflects the change in value of the ETN from the previous valuation date due to the daily change in the index level and the daily accrual of the investor fee and other applicable costs.  The closing indicative note value of an ETN may differ from the actual trading price of the ETN at any time due to hedging or transaction costs, credit considerations, market liquidity, bid-offer spreads or other factors affecting the trading price of the ETN.  For more information on how the closing indicative note value is calculated, please see the section “Specific Terms of the ETNs” in the prospectus relating to the ETNs.   

Index Returns
Index returns show the change in the level of the index underlying the ETNs over the relevant period, expressed as a percentage.  Index returns are calculated using the closing index level from the beginning of the relevant period to the end of the relevant period.  For any historical period of one year or longer, index returns are shown on an annualized basis.  Index returns are for illustrative purposes only and do not represent actual ETN performance. Index returns do not reflect any management fees, transaction costs, or expenses which would reduce your actual return, including the investor fee and applicable costs of the ETNs. Indexes are unmanaged and one cannot invest directly in an index..
