This material is intended for your sole use and is provided to you on the understanding that, before entering into any transaction referred to in this material, and/ or any related transaction (together, the “Transaction”), you will ensure that you fully understand the potential risks and return of the Transaction and determine whether the Transaction is appropriate for you given your objectives, experience, financial and operational resources, and other relevant circumstances. Nothing in this material constitutes an offer or invitation to enter into any engagement or transaction or an offer or invitation for the sale, purchase, exchange or transfer of any securities or a recommendation to enter into any transaction, nor is it intended to form the basis of any investment decision. The material does not take into account the particular investment objectives, financial conditions, or needs of individual clients or whether any transaction is suitable for any particular investor.
NatWest Markets will not act and has not acted as your legal, tax, regulatory, accounting or investment adviser; nor does NatWest Markets owe any fiduciary duties to you in connection with the Transaction and no reliance may be placed on NatWest Markets for investment advice or recommendations of any sort. You should make your own independent evaluation of the relevance and adequacy of the information contained in this document and make such other investigations as you deem necessary including obtaining independent financial advice, before participating in any transaction in relation to the securities referred to in this document. This material is not intended for distribution to, or use by any person or entity in any jurisdiction or country where such distribution or use would be contrary to local law or regulation.
NatWest Markets and its affiliates, connected companies, employees or clients may have an interest in financial instruments of the type described in this material and/or in related financial instruments giving rise to potential conflicts of interest which may impact the performance of such financial instruments. Such interests may include, but are not limited to, (a) dealing in, trading, holding or acting as market-maker or liquidity provider in such financial instruments and any reference obligations; (b) entering into hedging strategies on behalf of issuer clients and their affiliates, investor clients or for itself or its affiliates and connected companies; and (c) providing banking, credit and other financial services to any company or issuer of securities or financial instruments referred to herein. NatWest Markets and its affiliates, connected companies, employees or clients may at any time acquire, hold or dispose of long or short positions (including hedging and trading positions) which may impact the performance of a financial instrument.
This material may relate to over-the-counter derivatives (“OTC Derivatives”) in which case you should be aware that OTC Derivatives can provide benefits but may also involve a variety of significant risks. All OTC Derivatives involve risks which include (among other things) the risk of adverse or unanticipated market, financial or political developments, risks relating to the counterparty, liquidity and other risks of a complex character. In the event that such risks arise, substantial costs and/ or losses may be incurred and operational risks may arise in the event that appropriate internal systems and controls are not in place. Therefore you should also determine whether OTC Derivatives are appropriate for you given your objectives, experience, financial and operational resources, and other relevant circumstances.
If you enter into an OTC Derivative transaction and decide to close out the transaction, or the transaction otherwise terminates before its scheduled termination date, you may have to pay break costs. These will be calculated by reference to prevailing market conditions and include any costs incurred by NatWest Markets in terminating any related financial instrument or trading position. Please note that such break costs can be substantial. If you enter into an OTC Derivative transaction for the purposes of hedging a loan or other debt and you subsequently wish to repay the debt (whether through refinancing or otherwise), you should be aware that it may be necessary for NatWest Markets to terminate the hedging transaction before its scheduled termination date and satisfy any liabilities that you may have to it with respect to such transaction (including break costs) before NatWest Markets will release any related security that you have provided to it.
