Risk and Considerations

The methodology of and rules governing the index (the “Index Methodology” and the “Index”) are proprietary. None of the sponsor of the Index (the “Index Sponsor”), the index calculation agent (where such party is not also the Index Sponsor, the “Index Calculation Agent”) nor, where applicable, the index Investment Advisor (the “Index Investment Advisor”) guarantee that there will be no errors or omissions in computing or disseminating the Index.

The Index Methodology is based on certain assumptions, certain pricing models and calculation methods adopted by the Index Sponsor, the Index Calculation Agent and, where applicable, the Index Investment Advisor, and may have certain inherent limitations. Information prepared on the basis of different models, calculation methods or assumptions may yield different results. You have no authority to use or reproduce the Index Methodology in any way, and neither BNP Paribas nor any of its affiliates shall be liable for any loss whatsoever, whether arising directly or indirectly from the use of the Index or Index Methodology or otherwise in connection therewith.

The Index Sponsor reserves the right to amend or adjust the Index Methodology from time to time in accordance with the rules governing the Index and accepts no liability for any such amendment or adjustment. Neither the Index Sponsor nor the Index Calculation Agent are under any obligation to continue the calculation, publication or dissemination of the Index and accept no liability for any suspension or interruption in the calculation thereof which is made in accordance with the rules governing the Index. None of the Index Sponsor, the Index Calculation Agent nor, where applicable, the Index Investment Advisor accept any liability in connection with the publication or use of the level of the Index at any given time.

The Index Methodology embeds certain costs in the strategy which cover amongst other things, friction, replication and repo costs in running the Index. The levels of such costs (if any) may vary over time in accordance with market conditions as determined by the Index Sponsor acting in a commercially reasonable manner. BNP Paribas and/or its affiliates may act in a number of different capacities in relation to the Index and/or products linked to the Index, which may include, but not be limited to, acting as market-maker, hedging counterparty, issuer of components of the Index, Index Sponsor and/or Index Calculation Agent. Such activities could result in potential conflicts of interest that could influence the price or value of a Product.
