Investing in the Security entails certain risks including, but not limited to, the following:

100% Principal Protection only at Maturity: The Security is 100% principal protected only if held to maturity.
If an investor wishes to sell or trade the Security prior to the Maturity Date, the investor may lose part of or
the entire amount invested.

Credit Risk: The Security constitutes unsecured debt obligations of the Issuer. As such, all payments to the
investor (principal, interest or otherwise) are the responsibility of the Issuer and the likelihood that such
payments are received by the investor will be dependent on the financial health and
creditworthiness of the Issuer. All equity returns will be hedged using options purchased on the
international markets. Therefore, investors’ will assume the risk of any default thereof relating to
payment of equity returns.

Liquidity Risk: There is currently no established trading market for the Security and the Issuer does not
intend to apply for the Security to be listed on any organized exchange in Jamaica or any other

No Shareholder Rights: A holder of the Security will have no beneficial interest in either Reference Index
nor any voting rights and will not have the right to receive dividends or other distributions with respect to
either Reference Index.

Underlying Risk: The additional pay-off on the Security will be redeemed at an amount determined by
reference to the performance of the Individual Index and such performance will therefore affect the
nature and value of the investment return on the Security. Holders of the Security and prospective
purchasers of the Security should conduct their own investigations and, in deciding whether or not to
purchase the Security, prospective purchasers should form their own views of the merits of an investment
related to the Index based upon such investigations and not in reliance on any information given in the
Term Sheet.

Exchange Rate Risk: The indexation feature of this Note means that Investors subscribing in Jamaican
Dollars will be exposed to currency risk as a result of any adverse movements in the exchange rate of the
Jamaican Dollar versus the United States Dollar". Currency rate movements are affected by local and
international market conditions, the applicable BOJ Weighted Average Selling rate will be used in all
calculations for interest payments and at maturity.

This Note is a US$ indexed Investment Note structured towards providing investors with exposure to the
US Materials Sector.

This is a Principal Protected Note, which means that investors are guaranteed to receive at maturity, at
least the principal amount that was invested irrespective of the performance of the Materials Select Sector
SPDR Fund. This Structured Note will also provide investors with a guaranteed coupon of 2.25% p.a. paid

The Note has the following features:
 Principal Protection - 100% guarantee of principal at maturity
 Cash Flow - Guaranteed 2.25% coupon paid semi-annually
 Potential Upside - Potential to earn enhanced returns (free of withholding tax)

The scenarios set out below are included for illustration purposes only (they are not intended as estimates
or forecasts of the price movement of the XLB index). In both scenarios the principal amount is
US$100,000 and the price of XLB on the Issue Date is assumed to be US$58.10.

Scenario 1
XLB price increases and closes at $64.90, on the date of maturity; the investor would receive an index
participation of 1.76% plus 2.25% p.a. of coupon payments for throughout the 1 year which equates to an
overall return of 4.01% over the duration of the Structured Note.

Scenario 2
XLB price decreases and closes at $56.40 on the date of maturity; the investor would not participate in any
of the negative index return but would have still received coupon payments of 2.25% p.a. for throughout
the 1 year which equates to an overall return of 2.25% over the duration of the Structured Note.

Global output is estimated to have grown by 3.7% in 2017, which is ½ percentage point higher than in 2016.
The pickup in growth has been broad based, with notable upside surprises in Europe and Asia. Global
growth forecasts for 2018 and 2019 have been revised upward by 0.2 percentage point to 3.9%. The revision
reflects increased global growth momentum and the expected impact of the recently approved U.S. tax
policy changes.

The U.S. tax policy changes are expected to stimulate activity, with the short-term impact in the United
States mostly driven by the investment response to the corporate income tax cuts. The effect on U.S.
growth is estimated to be positive through 2020, cumulating to 1.2% through that year, with a range of
uncertainty around this central scenario.

The current cyclical upswing provides an ideal opportunity for the specific sectors that will benefit from
the broad based growth. Base metals — such as iron ore, copper, aluminium and nickel — are the lifeblood
of global industrial production and construction. These commodities benefit directly from a healthy global
economy. The growing demand amidst moderate supply (given the low investment in recent years) should
fuel higher prices for commodities.

Prices of industrial commodities should continue to strengthen in the near term, while most agricultural
prices remained broadly stable. With the exception of iron ore, metals prices are expected to increase
moderately in 2018. Agricultural prices are seen broadly unchanged in 2017 and are anticipated to gain
marginally in 2018. Additionally, Gold and platinum prices are expected to recorded modest increases in the
near term owing largely to solid investment demand stemming from a weaker U.S. dollar and escalating
geopolitical tensions between the United States and the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea. Silver
prices fell 2.0%.

The favourable effects of stronger commodity prices and easier financing conditions on some commodity-
exporting countries should boost the returns of companies operating within the sector. The material
sector ETF Materials Select Sector SPDR Fund (XLB) provides an opportunity for investors to benefit from
the improved near-term outlook for commodity prices.

THE ASSET - Select Sector SPDR Fund (XLB)

The XLB seeks to provide precise exposure to companies in the chemical, construction material, containers
and packaging, metals and mining, and paper and forest products industries. This ETF allows investors to
take strategic or tactical positions at a more targeted level than traditional style based investing.


Despite the favourable outlook for the sector, and in particular the XLB, there are risks. This includes, the
downside, high asset valuations which raise the possibility of a financial market correction. This could
dampen growth and confidence. Additionally, a faster-than-expected increase in advanced economy core
inflation as a result in demand accelerating, could drive interest rates higher and impact asset pricing.
Further, the inward-looking policies, geopolitical tensions, and political uncertainty in some countries could
also pose downside risks.

These risks are assessed to be low, as the stronger momentum experienced in 2017 is expected to carry
into 2018 and 2019. This is to be supported by the favourable global financial conditions and strong
sentiment which is to help maintain the recent acceleration in demand.
