Risks Relating to Structured Products
The Structured Products are non-collateralised products. If the issuer becomes insolvent or defaults on its obligations under the Structured Products, investors may not be able to recover all or even part of the amount due.
The Structured Products are complex products that involve derivatives and their price may fall in value as rapidly as it may rise and holders may sustain a total loss of their investment. Investors should carefully review and understand the nature and full details of the Structured Products and information about the issuer, as set out in the relevant offering documents or listing documents, and make their own risk assessment before investing in the Structured Products. You should ensure that you understand the nature and the risks of Structured Products before making an investment. Where necessary, you should seek professional advice as to the suitability of the Structured Products with regard to your specific circumstances and financial position.
Callable bull/bear contracts have a mandatory call feature and may be terminated early. In the event of a mandatory call, (i) an investor of category N callable bull/bear contracts will not receive any cash payment and (ii) the residual value for category R callable bull/bear contracts may be zero.
Conflict of Interest
Huatai International and their respective directors, officers and employees may from time to time take proprietary positions and may have long or short positions or other interests in the Structured Products (or the underlying securities) and may effect transactions or make markets in the Structured Products (or the underlying securities) at any time in the open market or otherwise, in each case whether as principal, agent or market maker.
Due to the various roles that Huatai International plays in the Structured Products, we may also issue other competing financial products or otherwise be involved in other financial, investment and professional activities which may on occasion give rise to interests, or a conflict of interests, in respect of the securities referred to on this Website. Huatai International owes no duty to you to avoid such conflicts.
All such activities and transactions may have a positive or negative impact on the price of the underlying asset and, in turn, the value and/or market price of the Structured Products.
Past Performance Information
Any past performance referred to on this Website is not indicative of future performance. It is not possible to predict if and to what extent a secondary market may develop in any series of Structured Products and at what price such series of Structured Products will trade in the secondary market and whether such market will be liquid or illiquid. The fact that the Structured Products are listed on The Stock Exchange of Hong Kong Limited (the “Exchange”) does not necessarily lead to greater liquidity than if they were not listed. The issuer (who also acts as the liquidity provider) may be the only market participant quoting prices on the Exchange and the secondary market for the Structured Products may be limited.
