Index Returns measure returns over the relevant period using the change in the index level expressed as a percentage from the beginning of the relevant period to the end of the relevant period. Index Returns are for illustrative purposes only and do not represent actual ETN performance. Index Returns do not reflect any investor fees, transaction costs, or expenses which would reduce your actual return or the results of any currency hedging returns. Indexes are unmanaged and one cannot invest directly in an index.
Market Returns measure returns over the relevant period using the change in the midpoint of the bid/ask spread at 4:00 pm Eastern time (or the last midpoint of the bid/ask spread prior to 4:00 pm Eastern time) expressed as a percentage from the beginning of the relevant period to the end of the relevant period and do not represent the returns you would receive if you traded at other times. Market Returns do not account for brokerage commissions, which will reduce actual returns.
Indicative Value Returns
The Indicative Value Returns measure the returns over the relevant period using the change in the closing indicative value expressed as a percentage from the beginning of the relevant period to the end of the relevant period and reflect the current investor fee.
Subject to the requirements which may be established by the issuer from time to time, the ETNs may be redeemed on any redemption date during the term of the ETNs. In order to exercise the right to redeem the ETNs on any redemption date, the ETNs must be redeemed by the holder in blocks of at least 25,000 at one time.
A redemption date is the third business day following each valuation date (other than the final valuation date). Valuation Date means each business day during the term of the ETNs inclusive (subject to a market disruption event) where (1) such day is a currency business day and (2) such business day is an index business day.
An intraday "indicative value" meant to approximate the intrinsic economic value of each ETN is calculated and published by Bloomberg or a successor under the respective ticker symbols listed above. Additionally, the daily closing indicative value of each ETN is calculated and posted each trading day to the Product Data table above.
The Indicative value calculation 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 iPath ETNs, nor do they reflect hedging or transaction costs, credit considerations, market liquidity, or bid-offer spreads. Published index levels from the sponsors of the indices underlying each iPath ETN may occasionally be subject to delay or postponement. Any such delays or postponements will affect the Current Index Factor and therefore the Indicative value of each iPath ETN. Index levels provided by the sponsors of the indices underlying the iPath ETNs do not necessarily reflect the depth and liquidity of the underlying commodities markets. For this reason and others, the actual trading price of the iPath ETN may be different from their Indicative value.
1 The investor fee is the Yearly Fee times the applicable closing indicative value, calculated on a daily basis in the following manner: The investor fee on the inception date will equal zero. On each subsequent valuation date until maturity or early redemption, the investor fee will be equal to the Yearly Fee times the closing indicative value on the immediately preceding valuation date times the number of calendar days from the immediately preceding valuation date to such subsequent valuation date divided by 365.
Selected Risk Considerations
An investment in the iPath ETNs described herein (the "ETNs") involves risks. Selected risks are summarized here, but we urge you to read the more detailed explanation of risks described under "Risk Factors" in the applicable Prospectus.
You May Lose Some or All of Your Principal:
The ETNs are exposed to a 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 has increased. Because the ETNs are subject to an investor fee and any 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.
The ETNs are not insured deposit liabilities:
The ETNs are not deposit liabilities of Barclays Bank PLC and are not insured by the Canada Deposit Insurance Corporation, the U.S. Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation or any other governmental agency of Canada, the United States, the United Kingdom or any other jurisdiction.
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.
Barclays Bank PLC will have the right to redeem or "call" a series of ETNs (in whole but not in part) at its sole discretion and without your consent on any business day on or after the inception date until and including maturity.
Barclays Pure Beta Series 2 Methodology:
The Barclays Pure Beta Series 2 Methodology seeks to mitigate distortions in the commodities markets associated with investment flows and supply and demand distortions. However, there is no guarantee that the Pure Beta Series 2 Methodology will succeed in these objectives and an investment in the ETNs linked to indices using this methodology may underperform compared to an investment in a traditional commodity index linked to the same commodities.
Market and Volatility Risk:
The prices of physical commodities, including the commodities underlying the index components, can fluctuate widely due to supply and demand disruptions in major producing or consuming regions. Additionally, the market value of the ETNs may be influenced by many unpredictable factors including changes in supply and demand relationships, governmental policies and economic events.
Because the ETNs are linked to an index composed of futures contracts on a single commodity or in only one commodity sector, the ETNs are less diversified than other funds. The ETNs can therefore experience greater volatility than other funds or investments.
A Trading Market for the ETNs May Not Develop:
Although the ETNs are listed on the Toronto Stock 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 Prospectus.
