Prohibition on marketing and sales of the AT1 Securities to retail investors

The AT1 Securities are complex financial instruments and are not a suitable or appropriate investment for all investors. In some jurisdictions, regulatory authorities have adopted or published laws, regulations or guidance with respect to the offer or sale of securities such as the AT1 Securities to retail investors. These include the following:

FCA CoCo restriction: In June 2015, the UK Financial Conduct Authority (the “FCA”) published the Product Intervention (Contingent Convertible Instruments and Mutual Society Shares) Instrument 2015 (the “PI Instrument”). In addition The AT1 Securities are not intended to be, and should not be, offered, sold or otherwise made available to any retail investor in the United Kingdom (the “UK”).

EU PRIIPs Regulation: The AT1 Securities are not intended to be, and should not be, offered, sold or otherwise made available to any retail investor in the European Economic Area (the “EEA”).

Consequently, no key information document required by Regulation (EU) No. 1286/2014 on key information documents for packaged and retail and insurance based investment products (as amended, the “EU PRIIPs Regulation”) for offering or selling the AT1 Securities or otherwise making them available to retail investors in the EEA has been prepared and therefore offering or selling the AT1 Securities or otherwise making them available to any retail investor in the EEA may be unlawful under the EU PRIIPs Regulation.

UK PRIIPs Regulation: The AT1 Securities are not intended to be, and should not be, offered, sold or otherwise made available to any retail investor in the UK.

EU MiFID II product governance: Solely for the purposes of the European Union ("EU) manufacturer product approval process, the target market for the AT1 Securities is eligible counterparties and professional clients only, each as defined in MiFID II and all channels for distribution of the AT1 Securities to eligible counterparties and professional clients are appropriate. Any person subsequently offering, selling or recommending the AT1 Securities (a “distributor”) should take into consideration the target market assessment; however, a distributor subject to MiFID II is responsible for undertaking its own target market assessment in respect of the AT1 Securities (by either adopting or refining the manufacturer target market assessment) and determining appropriate distribution channels.

UK MiFIR product governance: Solely for the purposes of the UK manufacturer product approval process, the target market for the AT1 Securities is only eligible counterparties, as defined in the FCA Handbook Conduct of Business Sourcebook (“COBS”), and professional clients, as defined in Regulation (EU) No 600/2014 as it forms part of domestic law by virtue of the EUWA (“UK MiFIR”) and all channels for distribution of the AT1 Securities to eligible counterparties and professional clients are appropriate. Any person subsequently offering, selling or recommending the AT1 Securities (a “distributor”) should take into consideration the target market assessment; however, a distributor subject to the FCA Handbook Product Intervention and Product Governance Sourcebook (the “UK MiFIR Product Governance Rules”) is responsible for undertaking its own target market assessment in respect of the AT1 Securities (by either adopting or refining the target market assessment) and determining appropriate distribution channels.
