Portfolio Based Lending may not be appropriate or in the best interest for every client. An investment strategy tied to the portfolio exposes the investors to additional costs, increased risks, and potential losses in excess of the amount deposited. The risk of loss in financing a transaction by deposit of collateral is significant. You may sustain losses in excess of your cash and any other assets deposited as collateral with the impossible to execute contingent orders, such as
stop-limit orders. You may be called upon at short notice to make additional margin deposits or interest payments. If the required margin deposits or interest payments are not made within the prescribed time, your collateral may be liquidated without your consent. Moreover, you will remain liable for any resulting deficit in your account and interest charged on your account. You should therefore carefully consider whether such a financing arrangement is suitable and in your best interest, in light of your own investment profile including, but not limited to, your financial position and investment objectives. You are not entitled to choose which securities or other assets in your account(s) are liquidated or sold to meet a margin call. Portfolio-Based Lending Regulation U Purpose Loans proceeds cannot be used for taking short positions in the investment account.
The firm can increase its margin requirements at any time and is not required to provide you advance written notice. You are not entitled to an extension of time on a margin call. Citi has the right to demand repayment of a demand facility at any time, for any reason or no reason.

We encourage you to keep up to date with the latest industry developments in relation to benchmark transitioning and to consider its impact on your business.

Investment strategies are not appropriate for every investor. Clients should review with their Financial Professional(s) the terms and conditions and risks involved with specific products or services.
Investments in financial instruments carry significant risk, including the following:
- Potential of loss of the principal amount invested. Because of the effect of leverage, a relatively small market movement will have a proportionately large impact of the funds you have deposited. This loss can be equal to, or some instances greater than the full amount of your initial investment.
- Options. Clients should be fully aware of the standardized terms, special vocabulary (such as puts, calls, delta and theta) and the potential high–risk characteristics of option transactions.
- International Investing, may have additional risk, including foreign, economic, political, monetary and/or legal factors, changing currency exchange rates, foreign taxes, and differences in financial and accounting standards. These risks may be magnified in emerging markets.
- Financial instruments denominated in a foreign currency are subject to exchange rate fluctuations, which may have an adverse effect on the price of an investment in such products.
- Diversification does not ensure against loss.
- Foreign Exchange – Cash or forward positions in Foreign Currencies (Foreign Exchange –"FX") are volatile and involve inherent risks including the effect of leverage. FX transactions are not appropriate for every investor and clients should refrain from investing (or hedging) in FX unless they are knowledgeable, experienced and fully understand the terms and risks. Foreign currency cash positions are segregated but are not FDIC insured, are not bank deposits and have no bank guarantee. Certain FX transactions are only available to Eligible Contract Participants as defined in the Commodity Exchange Act.
- Past performance is no guarantee of future results.
Preferred stocks can be called prior to maturity, which may reduce yield if purchased at a premium. Preferred stocks may be subject to other call features or corporate restrictions that may have an effect similar to a call. Prices may fluctuate reflecting market interest rates and the issuer's credit status. Preferred stocks may include additional risks such as postponement risk, which allows for the issuer of a cumulative preferred stock to defer/postpone dividend payments for up to 10 years before defaulting.
Investing in stocks and ETFs entails the risks of market volatility. The value of all types of stocks and ETFs may increase or decrease over varying time periods. To the extent the investments depicted herein represent international securities; you should be aware that there may be additional risks associated with international investing, including foreign economic, political, monetary and/or legal factors, changing currency exchange rates, foreign taxes and differences in financial and accounting standards. International investing may not be for everyone. These risks may be magnified in emerging markets. Small capitalization companies may lack the financial resources, product diversification and competitive strengths of larger companies. The securities of small capitalization companies may not trade as readily as, and be subject to higher volatility than, those of larger, more established companies. An ETF directly invests in or aims to track the performance of an underlying asset or asset class therefore the performance of an ETF will be affected by the performance of the underlying asset or asset class and the risks associated with investing in that asset or asset class. If the ETF aims to track the performance of an asset or asset class rather than investing in it directly then there is a
tracking risk whereby the performance of the ETF doesn't exactly match that of the asset or asset class it is aiming to track. A lack of liquidity could affect the price of the security.
Bonds are affected by a number of risks, including fluctuations in interest rates, credit risk and prepayment risk. In general, as prevailing interest rates rise, fixed income securities prices will fall. Bonds face credit risk if a decline in an issuer's credit rating, or creditworthiness, causes a bond's price to decline. High yield bonds are subject to additional risks such as increased risk of default and greater volatility because of the lower credit quality of the issues. Finally, bonds can be subject to prepayment risk. When interest rates fall, an issuer may choose to borrow money at a lower interest rate, while paying off its previously issued bonds. Consequently, underlying bonds will lose the interest payments from the investment and will be forced to reinvest in a market where prevailing interest rates are lower than when the initial investment was made. Yields and market value will fluctuate, so that your investment, if sold prior to maturity, may be worth more or less than its original cost.
Investors should carefully consider the fund(s) investment objectives, risks charges and expenses carefully before investing. The prospectus contains this and other information about the fund(s). To obtain a free prospectus, please call or visit the fund's website or contacting your financial executive. Read the prospectus carefully before you invest or send money. Investment return and principal value will fluctuate so that an investor's shares, when redeemed may be worth more or less than their original cost.
An investment in alternative investments (e.g., hedge funds, private equity) can be highly illiquid, are speculative and not suitable for all investors. Investing in alternative investments is for experienced and sophisticated investors who are willing to bear the high economic risks associated with such an investment. Investors should carefully review and consider potential risks before investing. Certain of these risks may include, loss of all or a substantial portion of the investment due to leveraging, short–selling, or other speculative practices; lack of liquidity in that there may be no secondary market for the fund and none is expected to develop; volatility of returns; restrictions on transferring interests in the Fund; potential lack of diversification and resulting higher risk due to concentration of trading authority when a single advisor is utilized; absence of information regarding valuations and pricing; complex tax structures and delays in tax reporting; less regulation and higher fees than mutual funds; and manager risk.
Structured Notes can be highly illiquid and are not suitable for all investors. Additional information can be found in the disclosure documents of the issuer for each respective structured product described herein. Investing in structured products is intended only for experienced and sophisticated investors who are willing and able to bear the high economic risks of such an investment.

- Restrictions on transferring structured products
- Absence of information regarding valuations and pricing
