Risk factors
Please see the Preliminary Offering Documents for a description of certain risks related to this investment, including, but not limited to, the following:
Depending on the performance of the Market Measure as measured shortly before the maturity date, your investment may result in a loss; there is no guaranteed return of principal.
Your investment return is limited to the return represented by the Step Up Payment and may be less than a comparable investment directly in the Market Measure or the securities included in the Market Measure.
Payments on the notes are subject to the credit risk of BNS, and actual or perceived changes in the creditworthiness of BNS are expected to affect the value of the notes. If BNS becomes insolvent or is unable to pay its obligations, you may lose your entire investment.
The initial estimated value of the notes on the pricing date will be less than their public offering price.
If you attempt to sell the notes prior to maturity, their market value may be lower than both the public offering price and the initial estimated value of the notes on the pricing date.
You will have no rights of a holder of the securities represented by the Market Measure, and you will not be entitled to receive securities or dividends or other distributions by the issuers of those securities.
All of the securities held by the Underlying Fund are concentrated in the gold and silver mining industry.
A limited number of securities may affect the Underlying Fund, and the Underlying Fund is not necessarily representative of the gold and silver mining industry.
The performance of the Underlying Fund may be influenced by gold and silver prices.
There is no direct correlation between the value of the notes or the price of the Underlying Fund, on the one hand, and gold and silver prices on the other hand.
Your return on the notes and the value of the notes may be affected by exchange rate movements and factors affecting the international securities markets.
The notes will be subject to small-capitalization or mid-capitalization companies risk.
NYSE Arca, Inc., the sponsor and compiler of the Underlying Fund, retains significant control and discretionary decision-making over the Underlying Fund, which may have an adverse effect on the return of the notes.
The COVID-19 virus may have an adverse impact on BNS.
Final terms will be set on the pricing date within the given range for the specified Market-Linked Investment. Please see the Preliminary Offering Documents for complete product disclosure, including related risks and tax disclosure.
