Investors are being asked to inspect all the risks inherent in the product and in particular (i) the credit risk – the repayment of capital invested and interest payments depend on the solvency of KBC IFIMA S.A. (the Issuer) and KBC Bank NV (the Guarantor); (ii) the exchange rate risk ‐ the Notes are denominated in AUD, an investment in the Notes represents a risk relating to the conversion of AUD into EUR with respect to Interest and the Amount Invested. (the AUD/EUR exchange rate can be volatile during the life of the Notes); (iii) liquidity risk ‐ the listing on the official list of the Luxembourg Stock Exchange does not guarantee that an active market will develop and therefore it is possible that investors will not be able to sell their Notes before the Maturity Date; (iv) risk on fluctuations of the price of the product (market risk) ‐ the price of the Notes can fluctuate due to various factors such as interest rate movements and market volatility and (v) ‘bail‐in’ risk ‐ In the event that the KBC Bank Group (i.e. KBC Bank NV and its affiliates) reaches the point of non‐viability, these Notes could be cancelled in whole or in part or converted into capital instruments (shares), depending on the decision of the regulator (the so called “bail‐in”).

The risk factors are described in the Base Prospectus on pages 28 et seq., and in the Product info sheet on pages 3-4.
