Structured Products, a more strategic way to invest

 SP

Target a specific investment opportunity over a fixed period of time with a degree of protection to your invested capital.

  Structured Products

A Structured Product is a form of debt security issued by an investment bank. They can be linked to the performance of a major stock market index like the FTSE 100 Index, or a selection of stocks. They are designed for sophisticated investors who are prepared to invest for a fixed period, and want some degree of protection over their initial capital.

Unlike many investments, your profit is not always determined by how much the asset rises, but whether it achieves a pre-defined level. That level could be above, below, or the same as it was when the product started. You also have a fixed investment term of between one and six years, and the product’s payout is not typically provided until the end of the investment term.

A re-assuring feature of Structured Products is that if the conditions for a payout are not met, you will typically get your money back at the end of the investment term, as long as the asset has not fallen by more than a predefined Protection Level, which is typically 20 - 50% below that starting level. If it has, your capital is at risk based on the fall of the Index.

CHOOSING A STRUCTURED PRODUCT

There are many different types of Structured Product, each has a very specific investment view, and offers a clearly defined potential reward against an equally clearly defined risk. They can be used in rising, flat or falling markets, and offer the potential for fixed or variable growth or income payments.

3 Broad categories of Structured Product

Capital Protection

Yield Enhancement

Growth Participation

Objective

Invest in the markets with the re-assurance that at least your capital will be returned at Maturity.

The potential to generate a fixed level of return based on a specific investment scenario, ie. the underlying asset achieving a certain level on a certain date.

The potential to achieve or enhance returns from rising, falling or both rising and falling markets

BUYING A STRUCTURED PRODUCT

Having read and understood the product guide for your chosen product, you can buy or sell a Structured Product at any time during the trading day as live prices are provided on the London Stock Exchange. You cannot trade directly with Societe Generale. You can trade Infinite Turbos with a UK stockbroker in a dealing account, SIPP or ISA.

Structured Products are complex products. As such, your stockbroker will require you to complete a Complex Products Assessment prior to trading for the first time.

COUNTERPARTY RISK

Structured Products are typically issued by SG Issuer, a 100% subsidiary of Societe Generale and Guaranteed by Societe Generale. Any failure by SG Issuer to make payments due under the Product may result in the loss of all or part of your investment. Insofar as payments are due by Societe Generale in its capacity as Guarantor, investors are exposed to a credit risk on Societe Generale.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION

Structured Products are suitable for sophisticated retail clients in the UK, who have a good understanding of the underlying market and characteristics of the security. In particular, it is important that, before you make any investment, you understand that you could lose all of your investment when investing in these products, even if they are held until the end of their term. You should read the Product Guide and Final Terms for your chosen product before making any investment. You should read the Final Terms carefully and keep it safe for future reference.
