iPath® Exchange Traded Notes (ETNs) are issued by Barclays Bank PLC.

iPath® ETNs are senior, unsecured, unsubordinated debt securities issued by Barclays Bank PLC. They provide investors with convenient exposure to the returns of market benchmarks, less an investor fee, with easy transferability and an exchange listing. The ETN structure is designed to allow investors cost-effective exposure to investments in often expensive or diffi cult-toreach market sectors or strategies. ETNs are subject to the credit risk of Barclays Bank PLC.
SG ETNs are simple transparent notes tracking the performance of a specific asset, i.e. an equity index, a commodity index, a basket of shares, currencies, futures contracts etc.
- SG ETNs are traded on the London Stock Exchange during market hours through authorised stockbrokers, just like a single share. They are liquid investments; prices are displayed throughout the day under normal market conditions and are provided by Societe Generale Option Group who function as market maker.
- SG ETNs are quoted in sterling, euro and dollars and where the underlying quotes in different currency than the ETN, Societe Generale eliminates the currency risk by using "built-in" currency protection called Quanto. The protection results in a percentage move of the underlying being reflected in a similar percentage move of the price of the Quanto ETN regardless of movements in the exchange rate, less the quanto fees and the management fees.
- The underlying indices may be volatile. ETNs are not suitable for all investors, it is recommended that potential investors study the Final Terms and seek their own independent advice before making any decision.
- SG ETNs do not benefit from a collateralisation mechanism. This means that there is a risk that any failure by a member of the Societe Generale group of companies to perform obligations when due may result in the loss of all or part of an investment. The investor will ultimately bear a credit risk on Societe Generale.
- ETNs are tracking instruments: their risk profile is similar to a direct investment in the underlying. Investors’ capital is at risk, the maximum loss is the investor’s initial investment.
