I am a resident of Hong Kong. I acknowledge that I have read and understood, accepted and agreed to abide by the Terms of Use set forth below.

Terms of Use
This section contains the terms of use of this website ('Terms'). By accessing this website and any of its pages, you are agreeing to these Terms.

Important Risk Warning
This structured product is a not-collateralised. The standard warrants ('Standard Warrants'), inline warrants (‘Inline Warrants’) and/or callable bull/bear contracts ('CBBCs') are non-collateralised structured products involving derivatives (‘Structured Products’) and are complex products. Investors should exercise caution in relation to them. Do not invest in them unless you fully understand and are willing to assume the risks associated with them. The price of the Structured Products may fall in value as rapidly as it may rise and investors may sustain a total or substantial loss of their investment. Prospective investors should ensure that they understand the nature and risks and seek professional advice where applicable.

Trading structured products with United States (US) underlying index may be exposed to additional risks, including:

(i)Risks relating to difference in trading days and hours
The US underlying index level is calculated and published during the trading hours of the respective index exchange. The US index futures contracts are traded on the respective index futures exchange. The trading days and hours of the index exchange and the index futures exchange (based on Hong Kong time) are different from that of the Stock Exchange of Hong Kong. In assessing the price of the structured products, you should be aware of the differences in the time zone and the actual trading days and hours of the relevant exchanges in Hong Kong and the United States. For example, the underlying index level may be volatile during a period which the Stock Exchange of Hong Kong is not open for trading of the structured products.

(ii)Less public information about the US underlying index and such information may not be available in Chinese
There may be less publicly available information about the US underlying index than those about Hong Kong indices and some of that information may not be available in Chinese. If you do not understand any such information, you should obtain independent advice.

(iii)Political and economic risks relating to the US underlying index
The US underlying index level may be subject to political, economic, financial and social factors that apply in those geographical regions (such as the United States), which may differ favourably or unfavourably from those factors that apply to Hong Kong. Moreover, foreign economies may also differ favourably or unfavourably from the Hong Kong economy in important respects such as, including but not limited to, growth of gross national product, rate of inflation, capital reinvestment, resources and self-sufficiency.

(iv)Exchange rate risks
As the trading price of the constituent stocks comprising the US underlying index is quoted in United States Dollars (“US$”) but the structured products will be settled in Hong Kong Dollars (“HK$”), there will be an exchange rate risk when we convert US$ into HK$ in the calculation of the cash settlement amount.

(v)Possible delay in settlement
The valuation date could be postponed if such day is not the day on which the index futures contracts expire on the respective index futures exchange. Such postponement will in turn result in a delay for settlement of the structured products accordingly.

(vi)Publication of US index level when component shares are not trading
The index compiler may publish the index level at a time when one or more shares comprising the index are not trading. In such case, the index level may be calculated by the index compiler by reference to the remaining shares comprising the index. This may have an unforeseen adverse impact on the value of your investment.

Issuer's Risk
You rely on creditworthiness of the Structured Products’ issuer. The product is subject to both the actual and perceived measures of the credit worthiness of its issuer and there is no assurance of protection against a default by its issuer in respect of its payment obligations. If the issuer is insolvent or defaults, investors may not recover part or all of the amount due (if any).

Investors are warned that the prices of the Structured Products may fall in value as rapidly as it may rise and holders may sustain a total or substantial loss of their investment.

Inline warrants carry exotic features, and their terms and pricing may be more complicated than standard derivative warrants. Maximum potential payoff is fixed and capped. Price movement of the inline warrants may be disproportionate or opposite to the price movement of the underlying asset.

HSBC aims to provide a website that is accessible to people with different needs. However, it is not always possible to do so in all areas of the website.

Users of the NVDA screen reader in connection with the Chinese sections of the website may experience difficulties where numbers are not announced correctly; specifically, the decimal point is ignored e.g. two point five zero is announced as two five zero. This is a known issue with using NVDA screen readers with Chinese websites and is outside of our control.

To solve the abovementioned issue, please follow the steps to open the NVDA Symbol Pronunciation dialog. In the Symbols listview, locate the item named Decimal Point, then move to the Replacement edit field and enter a suitable description or character, e.g. ‘decimal point’. Thereafter NVDA should announce the symbol correctly.
