2Strike Price refers to the price at which investors will buy the underlying shares if the Bank decides to deliver the underlying shares instead of the principal amount to the investor at maturity. The investor can choose from popular strike levels which are 3%, 5% or 7% below current share price. The Strike Price and/or number of shares will be adjusted if corporate actions such as bonus issue, rights issue, shares splits, or shares consolidation occurs. Cash distributions such as dividend payouts expected to occur during the investment period are already factored into the interest income and no further adjustments will be made.
