  40. 40. $100 protected at Maturity by a first Class bank 1 Investment life Total potential return at maturity Value of securities underpinning Guarantee Grows to US$ 100 over life of investment $40 (for trading) $60 approx. (Securities pledged to creditor to underpin principal protection) Value of securities underpinning principal protection grows to $100 over life of investment $100 Example of an enhanced structured product These products are not available to US investors The diagram below shows the general principles of an enhanced principal protected structured product. This product utilizes a credit facility to provide investors exposure to a complementary investment program. Given the low correlations between the core portfolio and complementary investment program, the product is designed to deliver higher investment returns without a corresponding increase in volatility. In addition to the principal protection, the potential lock-in of net new trading profits may raise the minimum protection level at maturity. Increased investment exposure of $60 through a credit facility Profit lock-in feature Total profit potential Profit potential Trading capital growth potential Schematic illustration. There is no guarantee that a fund will experience a profit as depicted above. Past performance is not indicative of future results. ¹Subject to the terms and conditions of the principal protection, payable on the Maturity Date for the Face Value of each bond outstanding and redeemed on the Maturity Date. Products that include a principal protection feature may also be subject to the risk of default by a bank or other counterparty providing the principal protection. The illustration assumes that the investment is held from inception to maturity and that no distributions are made. Investors could incur losses or lose their principal protection by redeeming some or all of their investment prior to maturity. This structured product employs leverage. The more leverage employed, the more likely a substantial change will occur, either up or down, in the value of the investment. In certain market conditions, investors could be invested entirely in bonds or other debt securities, which could mean forfeiting all potential gains should equity prices rise. Principal protection may be underpinned by zero coupon bonds. Because these bonds do not pay interest, their prices may be more volatile than other bonds with similar maturities that pay interest periodically. There are risks inherent in hedge funds.
