The returns on HSBC structured investments are linked to the performance of various market measure underliers. Investing in a structured investment is not equivalent to investing directly in the underlier. Before investing, clients should carefully read the offering documents for the specific issuance, which will explain the terms of the issuance as well as the risks related to the issuance. An investment in structured investments involves risks. These risks will depend on the terms of the specific issuance and the nature of the underlying market measure and could include: fluctuations in the price, level or yield of the underlier, changes in interest rates, currency values or credit quality, substantial or complete loss of principal, limits on participation in appreciation of the underlying instrument, limited liquidity, exposure to HSBC credit risk and certain conflicts of interest.
