This product (the ‘State Note’) is a debt instrument. By subscribing to this product, investors lend money to the Issuer, who undertakes to pay interest on an annual basis and to repay the nominal amount of the State Note at Maturity. However, if the Issuer defaults, investors run the risk of not recovering the amounts to which they are entitled, and of losing all or part of their invested capital. It is believed that the Kingdom of Belgium currently has ample financial resources to meet the financial commitments entered into.
