* This is the estimated return an investor can expect to receive over the next 12 months expressed in percentage terms. It is the sum of the expected interest payments over the year and where the coupon is partly dependent on Libor uses market based Libor forecasts at each coupon date and also takes into account the Note's current price. It is gross of taxation and our Service Fee. The current yield is therefore an estimated return only and is not guaranteed and may be revised in the future.
** This is an estimated annualised return gross of taxation and our Service Fee assuming the investment is held to maturity. It equates the present value of expected future interest payments of a Note into an annual yield across its life relative to the Note's current price. Where the interest coupon is partly dependent on Libor it uses market based forecasts of Libor and assumes that all interest is re-invested at a rate equal to the Yield to Maturity. For floating rate coupons because current market based forecasts are for Libor to increase in future years the calculation of Yield to Maturity assumes the interest paid to investors will be higher in future years. However, there is no guarantee that the Bank of England will raise interest rates or that Libor will increase as a result. In addition, any changes to the financial circumstances of the company or changes in the economic terms of the underlying loan could also impact future interest payments. The Yield to Maturity is therefore an estimated return only and is not guaranteed.
