Based on the Value of the Worst Performing of the Russell 2000® Index, the S&P 500® Index and the EURO STOXX 50® Index

Principal at Risk Securities

Unlike conventional debt securities, the securities do not guarantee the payment of interest or any return of principal at maturity. Instead, the securities offer the opportunity for investors to receive a contingent quarterly payment equal to at least 2.125% of the stated principal amount (the actual contingent quarterly payment will be determined on the pricing date) with respect to each quarterly determination period if a coupon barrier event has not occurred during that determination period. However, if a coupon barrier event has occurred during a determination period, investors will not receive any contingent quarterly payment for that determination period. A coupon barrier event will occur with respect to a determination period if the closing level of any underlier is less than 75% of its initial underlier value, which we refer to as a coupon barrier lev
el
, on any scheduled trading day during that determination period. In addition, on any contingent payment date (other than the final contingent payment date), we will have the right to redeem the securities at our discretion for an amount per security equal to the stated principal amount plus any contingent quarterly payment otherwise due. Any early redemption of the securities will be at our discretion and will not automatically occur based on the performance of the underliers. If the securities are not redeemed prior to maturity and the final underlier value of each underlier is greater than or equal to 65% of its initial underlier value, which we refer to as a downside threshold level, the payment at maturity due on the securities will be equal to the stated principal amount plus any contingent quarterly payment otherwise due. However, if the securities are not redeemed prior to maturity and the final underlier value of any underlier is less than its downside threshold level, at maturity investors will lose 1% of the stated principal amount for every 1% that the final underlier value of the worst performing underlier is less than its initial underlier value. Under these circumstances, the amount investors receive will be less than 65% of the stated principal amount and could be zero. Because all payments on the securities are based on the worst performing of the underliers, a decline in the closing level of any underlier below its coupon barrier level on any scheduled trading day during most or all of the determination periods will result in few or no contingent quarterly payments, and a decline in the closing level of any underlier below its downside threshold level on the final determination date will result in a significant loss of your investment, in each case, even if the other underliers appreciate or have not declined as much. The securities are for investors who are willing and able to risk their principal and forgo guaranteed interest payments, in exchange for the opportunity to receive contingent quarterly payments at a potentially above-market rate, subject to early redemption at our discretion. Investors will not participate in any appreciation of any underlier even though investors will be exposed to the depreciation in the value of the worst performing underlier if the securities have not been redeemed prior to maturity and the final underlier value of the worst
p
erforming underlier is less than its downside threshold level. Investors may lose their entire initial investment in the securities. The securities are unsecured and unsubordinated debt obligations of Barclays Bank PLC. Any payment on the securities, including any repayment of principal, is subject to the creditworthiness of Barclays Bank PLC and is not guaranteed by any third party. If Barclays Bank PLC were to default on its payment obligations or become subject to the exercise of any U.K. Bail-in Power (as described on page 5 of this document) by the relevant U.K. resolution authority, you might not receive any amounts owed to you under the securities. See “Risk Factors” and “Consent to U.K. Bail-in Power” in this document and “Risk Factors” in the accompanying prospectus supplement.

Aggregate principal amount:
$
Stated principal amount:
$1,000 per security
Initial issue price:
$1,000 per security (see “Commissions and initial issue price” below)
Pricing date:
September 20, 2019
Original issue date:
September 25, 2019
Maturity date:
March 24, 2022
Optional early redemption:
On any contingent payment date (other than the final contingent payment date), we will have the right to redeem the securities, in whole, but not in part, at our discretion, for the early redemption payment. If we decide to redeem the securities on a contingent payment date, we will give you notice on or before the immediately preceding determination period-end date. Any early redemption of the securities will be at our discretion and will not automatically occur based on the performance of the underliers. No further payments will be made on the securities after they have been redeemed.
Early redemption payment:
The early redemption payment will be an amount per security equal to (i) the stated principal amount plus (ii) any contingent quarterly payment otherwise due.
Contingent quarterly payment:

·
  If a coupon barrier event has not occurred during a determination period, we will pay a contingent quarterly payment of at least $21.25 (at least 2.125% of the stated principal amount) per security on the related contingent payment date with respect to that determination period. The actual contingent quarterly payment will be determined on the pricing date.
 

·
  If a coupon barrier event has occurred during a determination period, no contingent quarterly payment will be made with respect to that determination period.
 

Payment at maturity:

If the securities are not redeemed prior to maturity, you will receive on the maturity date a cash payment per security determined as follows:

·
    If the final underlier value of each underlier is greater than or equal to its downside threshold level:
 

(i) stated principal amount plus (ii) any contingent quarterly payment otherwise due

·
    If the final underlier value of any underlier is less than its downside threshold level:
 

stated principal amount × underlier performance factor of the worst performing underlier

Under these circumstances, the payment at maturity will be less than the stated principal amount of $1,000 and will represent a loss of more than 35%, and possibly all, of an investor’s initial investment. Investors may lose their entire initial investment in the securities. Any payment on the securities, including any repayment of principal, is not guaranteed by any third party and is subject to (a) the creditworthiness of Barclays Bank PLC and (b) the risk of exercise of any U.K. Bail-in Power by the relevant U.K. resolution authority.

Additional Information Regarding Our Estimated Value of the Securities

 

Our internal pricing models take into account a number of variables and are based on a number of subjective assumptions, which may or may not materialize, typically including volatility, interest rates and our internal funding rates. Our internal funding rates (which are our internally published borrowing rates based on variables, such as market benchmarks, our appetite for borrowing and our existing obligations coming to maturity) may vary from the levels at which our benchmark debt securities trade in the secondary market. Our estimated value on the pricing date is based on our internal funding rates. Our estimated value of the securities might be lower if such valuation were based on the levels at which our benchmark debt securities trade in the secondary market.

 

Our estimated value of the securities on the pricing date is expected to be less than the initial issue price of the securities. The difference between the initial issue price of the securities and our estimated value of the securities is expected to result from several factors, including any sales commissions expected to be paid to Barclays Capital Inc. or another affiliate of ours, any selling concessions, discounts, commissions or fees expected to be allowed or paid to non-affiliated intermediaries, the estimated profit that we or any of our affiliates expect to earn in connection with structuring the securities, the estimated cost that we may incur in hedging our obligations under the securities, and estimated development and other costs that we may incur in connection with the securities.

 

Our estimated value on the pricing date is not a prediction of the price at which the securities may trade in the secondary market, nor will it be the price at which Barclays Capital Inc. may buy or sell the securities in the secondary market. Subject to normal market and funding conditions, Barclays Capital Inc. or another affiliate of ours intends to offer to purchase the securities in the secondary market but it is not obligated to do so.

 

Assuming that all relevant factors remain constant after the pricing date, the price at which Barclays Capital Inc. may initially buy or sell the securities in the secondary market, if any, and the value that we may initially use for customer account statements, if we provide any customer account statements at all, may exceed our estimated value on the pricing date for a temporary period expected to be approximately 40 days after the initial issue date of the securities because, in our discretion, we may elect to effectively reimburse to investors a portion of the estimated cost of hedging our obligations under the securities and other costs in connection with the securities that we will no longer expect to incur over the term of the securities. We made such discretionary election and determined this temporary reimbursement period on the basis of a number of factors, which may include the tenor of the securities and/or any agreement we may have with the distributors of the securities. The amount of our estimated costs that we effectively reimburse to investors in this way may not be allocated ratably throughout the reimbursement period, and we may discontinue such reimbursement at any time or revise the duration of the reimbursement period after the initial issue date of the securities based on changes in market conditions and other factors that cannot be predicted.

 

We urge you to read “Risk Factors” beginning on page 14 of this document.

 

You may revoke your offer to purchase the securities at any time prior to the pricing date. We reserve the right to change the terms of, or reject any offer to purchase, the securities prior to their pricing date. In the event of any changes to the terms of the securities, we will notify you and you will be asked to accept such changes in connection with your purchase. You may also choose to reject such changes in which case we may reject your offer to purchase.

Consent to U.K. Bail-in Power

 

Notwithstanding any other agreements, arrangements or understandings between us and any holder or beneficial owner of the securities, by acquiring the securities, each holder and beneficial owner of the securities acknowledges, accepts, agrees to be bound by and consents to the exercise of, any U.K. Bail-in Power by the relevant U.K. resolution authority.

 

Under the U.K. Banking Act 2009, as amended, the relevant U.K. resolution authority may exercise a U.K. Bail-in Power in circumstances in which the relevant U.K. resolution authority is satisfied that the resolution conditions are met. These conditions include that a U.K. bank or investment firm is failing or is likely to fail to satisfy the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000 (the “FSMA”) threshold conditions for authorization to carry on certain regulated activities (within the meaning of section 55B FSMA) or, in the case of a U.K. banking group company that is a European Economic Area (“EEA”) or third country institution or investment firm, that the relevant EEA or third country relevant authority is satisfied that the resolution conditions are met in respect of that entity.

 

The U.K. Bail-in Power includes any write-down, conversion, transfer, modification and/or suspension power, which allows for (i) the reduction or cancellation of all, or a portion, of the principal amount of, interest on, or any other amounts payable on, the securities; (ii) the conversion of all, or a portion, of the principal amount of, interest on, or any other amounts payable on, the securities into shares or other securities or other obligations of Barclays Bank PLC or another person (and the issue to, or conferral on, the holder or beneficial owner of the securities such shares, securities or obligations); and/or (iii) the amendment or alteration of the maturity of the securities, or amendment of the amount of interest or any other amounts due on the securities, or the dates on which interest or any other amounts become payable, including by suspending payment for a temporary period; which U.K. Bail-in Power may be exercised by means of a variation of the terms of the securities solely to give effect to the exercise by the relevant U.K. resolution authority of such U.K. Bail-in Power. Each holder and beneficial owner of the securities further acknowledges and agrees that the rights of the holders or beneficial owners of the securities are subject to, and will be varied, if necessary, solely to give effect to, the exercise of any U.K. Bail-in Power by the relevant U.K. resolution authority. For the avoidance of doubt, this consent and acknowledgment is not a waiver of any rights holders or beneficial owners of the securities may have at law if and to the extent that any U.K. Bail-in Power is exercised by the relevant U.K. resolution authority in breach of laws applicable in England.

 

For more information, please see “Risk Factors—You may lose some or all of your investment if any U.K. bail-in power is exercised by the relevant U.K. resolution authority” in this document as well as “U.K. Bail-in Power,” “Risk Factors—Risks Relating to the Securities Generally—Regulatory action in the event a bank or investment firm in the Group is failing or likely to fail could materially adversely affect the value of the securities” and “Risk Factors—Risks Relating to the Securities Generally—Under the terms of the securities, you have agreed to be bound by the exercise of any U.K. Bail-in Power by the relevant U.K. resolution authority” in the accompanying prospectus supplement.

Investment Summary

Contingent Income Callable Securities

Principal at Risk Securities

 

The Contingent Income Callable Securities due March 24, 2022 Based on the Value of the Worst Performing of the Russell 2000® Index, the S&P 500® Index and the EURO STOXX 50® Index, which we refer to as the securities, provide an opportunity for investors to receive a contingent quarterly payment, which is an amount equal to at least $21.25 (at least 2.125% of the stated principal amount), with respect to each quarterly determination period if a coupon barrier event has not occurred during that determination period. However, if a coupon barrier event has occurred during a determination period, investors will not receive any contingent quarterly payment for that determination period. A coupon barrier event will occur with respect to a determination period if the closing level of any underlier is less than 75% of its initial underlier value, which we refer to as a coupon barrier level, on any scheduled trading day during that determination period. The actual contingent quarterly payment will be determined on the pricing date. The closing level of at least one of the underliers could be below its coupon barrier level on any scheduled trading day during most or all of the determination periods so that you receive few or no contingent quarterly payments over the term of the securities.

 

On any contingent payment date (other than the final contingent payment date), we will have the right to redeem the securities at our discretion for an early redemption payment equal to the stated principal amount plus any contingent quarterly payment otherwise due. If the securities are redeemed prior to maturity, investors will receive no further contingent quarterly payments. Any early redemption of the securities will be at our discretion and will not automatically occur based on the performance of the underliers. At maturity, if the securities have not previously been redeemed and the final underlier value of each underlier is greater than or equal to 65% of its initial underlier value, which we refer to as a downside threshold level, the payment at maturity will be equal to the stated principal amount plus any contingent quarterly payment otherwise due. However, if the securities have not previously been redeemed and the final underlier value of any underlier is less than its downside threshold level, investors will lose 1% of the stated principal amount for every 1% that the final underlier value of the worst performing underlier is less than its initial underlier value. Under these circumstances, the amount investors receive will be less than 65% of the stated principal amount and could be zero. Investors in the securities must be willing and able to accept the risk of losing their entire initial investment based on the performance of the worst performing underlier and also the risk of not receiving any contingent quarterly payment throughout the entire term of the securities. In addition, investors will not participate in any appreciation of any underlier.

Principal at Risk Securities

 

 

Key Investment Rationale

 

The securities are for investors who are willing and able to risk their principal and forgo guaranteed interest payments, in exchange for the opportunity to receive contingent quarterly payments at a potentially above-market rate, subject to early redemption at our discretion. The securities offer investors an opportunity to receive a contingent quarterly payment of at least $21.25 (at least 2.125% of the stated principal amount) with respect to each determination period if a coupon barrier event has not occurred during that determination period. The actual contingent quarterly payment will be determined on the pricing date. In addition, the following scenarios reflect the potential payment on the securities, if any, upon an early redemption or at maturity:

 

Scenario 1

On any contingent payment date (other than the final contingent payment date), we redeem the securities.

 

§
  
  The securities will be redeemed for (i) the stated principal amount plus (ii) any contingent quarterly payment otherwise due.

 

§
  
  Investors will not participate in any appreciation of any underlier from its initial underlier value and will receive no further contingent quarterly payments.

 

Any early redemption of the securities will be at our discretion and will not automatically occur based on the performance of the underliers. It is more likely that we will redeem the securities when it would otherwise be advantageous for you to continue to hold the securities. As such, we will be more likely to redeem the securities when the expected interest payable on the securities is greater than the interest that would be payable on other instruments of a comparable maturity and credit rating trading in the market. In other words, we will be more likely to redeem the securities when the securities are paying an above-market coupon. If the securities are redeemed prior to maturity, no further contingent quarterly payments will be made on the securities and you may be forced to reinvest in a lower interest rate environment. There is no guarantee that you would be able to reinvest the proceeds from an investment in the securities in a comparable investment with a similar level of risk in the event the securities are redeemed prior to the maturity date. On the other hand, we will be less likely to exercise our redemption right when the expected interest payable on the securities is less than the interest that would be payable on other instruments of a comparable maturity and credit rating trading in the market. Under these circumstances, it is also more likely that you will receive few or no contingent quarterly payments and that you will suffer a significant loss on your investment at maturity.

Scenario 2

The securities are not redeemed prior to maturity and the final underlier value of each underlier is greater than or equal to its downside threshold level.

 

§
  
  The payment due at maturity will be (i) the stated principal amount plus (ii) any contingent quarterly payment otherwise due.

 

§
  
  Investors will not participate in any appreciation of any underlier from its initial underlier value.

 

Scenario 3

The securities are not redeemed prior to maturity and the final underlier value of any underlier is less than its downside threshold level.

 

§
  
  The payment due at maturity will be equal to the stated principal amount times the underlier performance factor of the worst performing underlier. In this case, at maturity, the securities pay less than 65% of the stated principal amount and the percentage loss of the stated principal amount will be equal to the percentage decrease in the final underlier value of the worst performing underlier from its initial underlier value. For example, if the final underlier value of the worst performing underlier is 55% less than its initial underlier value, the securities will pay $450.00 per security, or 45% of the stated principal amount, for a loss of 55% of the stated principal amount. Investors will lose a significant portion and may lose all of their principal in this scenario.

Selected Purchase Considerations

 

The securities are not suitable for all investors. The securities may be a suitable investment for you if all of the following statements are true:

 

§
You do not seek an investment that produces fixed periodic interest or coupon payments or other non-contingent sources of current income.

 

§

Hypothetical Examples

 

The numbers appearing in the following examples may have been rounded for ease of analysis. The examples below assume that the securities will be held until maturity or earlier redemption and do not take into account the tax consequences of an investment in the securities. The examples below are based on the following terms:*

 

Hypothetical Initial Underlier Values:
With respect to each underlier: 100.00
Hypothetical Coupon Barrier Levels:
With respect to each underlier: 75.000, which is 75% of its hypothetical initial underlier value
Hypothetical Downside Threshold Levels:
With respect to each underlier: 65.000, which is 65% of its hypothetical initial underlier value
Hypothetical Contingent Quarterly Payment:
$21.25 (2.125% of the stated principal amount). The actual contingent quarterly payment will be set on the pricing date and will be at least 2.125% of the stated principal amount.
Stated Principal Amount:
$1,000 per security

* Terms used for purposes of these hypothetical examples may not represent the actual initial underlier values, coupon barrier levels, downside threshold levels or contingent quarterly payment applicable to the securities. In particular, the hypothetical initial underlier value of 100.00 for each underlier used in these examples has been chosen for illustrative purposes only and may not represent a likely actual initial underlier value for any underlier. Please see “Russell 2000® Index Overview,” “S&P 500® Index Overview” and “EURO STOXX 50® Index Overview” below for recent actual values of the underliers. The actual initial underlier values, coupon barrier levels, downside threshold levels and contingent quarterly payment applicable to the securities will be determined on the pricing date.

 

The examples below are based on the worst performing underlier during each determination period and on the final determination date, and assume that no market disruption event occurs with respect to any underlier during the term of the securities. We make no representation or warranty as to which of the underliers will be the worst performing underlier for the purpose of calculating the payment at maturity, if applicable, or as to what the closing level of any underlier will be on any scheduled trading day during any determination period. For purposes of the examples below, the “worst performing underlier” on any scheduled trading day during each determination period or on the final determination date will be the underlier with the largest percentage decline from its initial underlier value to its closing level on that scheduled trading day or the final determination date, as applicable.

 

In Examples 1 and 2, we redeem the securities on one of the contingent payment dates prior to the final contingent payment date. In Examples 3 and 4, the securities are not redeemed prior to, and remain outstanding until, maturity. Any early redemption of the securities will be at our discretion and will not automatically occur based on the performance of the underliers.

* If we redeem the securities, the early redemption payment will include any contingent quarterly payment otherwise due.

 

In Example 1, we redeem the securities on the contingent payment date following the first determination period. As a coupon barrier event did not occur during the related determination period, the early redemption payment you receive following the first determination period will include the contingent quarterly payment due with respect to that determination period, and the early redemption payment will be calculated as follows:

 

stated principal amount + contingent quarterly payment = $1,000 + $21.25 = $1,021.25

 

In this example, the optional early redemption feature limits the term of your investment to approximately 3 months, and you may not be able to reinvest at comparable terms or returns. If the securities are redeemed early, you will stop receiving contingent quarterly payments. Further, although the worst performing underlier has appreciated from its initial underlier value as of the first determination period-end date, upon early redemption you receive only $1,021.25 per security and do not benefit from the appreciation of any underlier.

 

In Example 2, we redeem the securities on the contingent payment date following the sixth determination period. As a coupon barrier event has not occurred during the first and fifth determination periods, you receive the contingent quarterly payment of $21.25 with respect to those determination periods. Because a coupon barrier event has occurred with respect to the sixth determination period, the early redemption payment you receive following the sixth determination period will not include any contingent quarterly payment with respect to that determination period, and the early redemption payment will be equal to the stated principal amount of $1,000. Moreover, because a coupon barrier event occurred with respect to the second, third and fourth determination periods, no contingent quarterly payment is made with respect to those determination periods.

 

In this example, the optional early redemption feature limits the term of your investment to approximately 18 months, and you may not be able to reinvest at comparable terms or returns. If the securities are redeemed early, you will stop receiving contingent quarterly payments.

Examples 3 and 4 illustrate the payment at maturity per security based on the final underlier value of the worst performing underlier.

 

In Example 3, the securities are not redeemed prior to maturity and a coupon barrier event has occurred during each determination period throughout the term of the securities. As a result, you do not receive any contingent quarterly payments during the term of the securities even if the closing levels of the other underliers on each scheduled trading day during the determination periods have appreciated or have not declined below their respective coupon barrier levels and even if the closing level of the worst performing underlier on the determination period-end date for that determination period is greater than its coupon barrier level. In addition, because the final underlier value of the worst performing underlier is less than its downside threshold level, at maturity, you are fully exposed to the decline in the closing level of the worst performing underlier. Thus, investors will receive a cash payment at maturity that is significantly less than the stated principal amount per security, calculated as follows:

 

($1,000 × underlier performance factor of the worst performing underlier)

 

=
$1,000
× (final underlier value of the worst performing underlier / initial underlier value of the worst performing underlier)

 

=
$1,000
× (50.00 / 100.00) = $500.00

 

In this example, the cash payment you receive at maturity is significantly less than the stated principal amount.

 

In Example 4, the securities are not redeemed prior to maturity and a coupon barrier event has occurred during each determination period throughout the term of the securities. As a result, you do not receive any contingent quarterly payments with respect to any determination period even if the closing levels of the other underliers on each scheduled trading day during the determination periods have appreciated or have not declined below their respective coupon barrier levels and even if the closing level of the worst performing underlier on the determination period-end date for that determination period is greater than its coupon barrier level. In addition, the closing level of the worst performing underlier decreases to a final underlier value of 70.00. Although the final underlier value of the worst performing underlier is less than its initial underlier value, because the final underlier value of the worst performing underlier is still not less than its downside threshold level, you receive the stated principal amount at maturity. However, because a coupon barrier event has occurred during the final determination period, you will not receive a contingent quarterly payment with respect to the final determination period.

 

In this example, although the final underlier value of the worst performing underlier represents a 30% decline from its initial underlier value, you receive the stated principal amount of $1,000 per security at maturity because the final underlier value of the worst performing underlier is not less than its downside threshold level.

Risk Factors

 

An investment in the securities involves significant risks. We urge you to consult your investment, legal, tax, accounting and other advisors before you invest in the securities. Investing in the securities is not equivalent to investing directly in any or all of the underliers or the securities composing the underliers. Some of the risks that apply to an investment in the securities are summarized below, but we urge you to read the more detailed explanation of risks relating to the securities generally in the “Risk Factors” section of the prospectus supplement. You should not purchase the securities unless you understand and can bear the risks of investing in the securities.

 

§
The securities do not guarantee the return of any principal. The terms of the securities differ from those of ordinary debt securities in that the securities do not guarantee the return of any of the stated principal amount at maturity. Instead, if the securities have not been redeemed prior to maturity and if the final underlier value of any underlier is less than its downside threshold level, you will be exposed to the decline in the closing level of the worst performing underlier, as compared to its initial underlier value, on a 1-to-1 basis and you will receive for each security that you hold at maturity an amount in cash equal to the stated principal amount times the underlier performance factor of the worst performing underlier. Under these circumstances, your payment at maturity will be less than 65% of the stated principal amount and could be zero.

 

§
You will not receive any contingent quarterly payment for any quarterly determination period if a coupon barrier event occurs on any scheduled trading day during that determination period with respect to any underlier. The terms of the securities differ from those of ordinary debt securities in that they do not provide for regular interest payments. Instead, a contingent quarterly payment will be made with respect to a determination period only if a coupon barrier event has not occurred during that determination period. A coupon barrier event will occur if the closing level of any underlier is less than its coupon barrier level on any scheduled trading day during that determination period. If the closing level of at least one underlier is below its coupon barrier level on any scheduled trading day during a determination period (i.e., if a coupon barrier event has occurred during that determination period), you will not receive a contingent quarterly payment with respect to that determination period even if the closing levels of the other underliers on each scheduled trading day during the determination periods have appreciated or have not declined below their respective coupon barrier levels and even if each underlier closes above its coupon barrier level on the determination period end date for that determination period. Therefore, unless each underlier closes above its coupon barrier level on each scheduled trading day during a determination period, you will not receive any contingent quarterly payment for that determination period. The closing level of the worst performing underlier could be below its coupon barrier level on any scheduled trading day during most or all of the determination periods so that you receive few or no contingent quarterly payments over the term of the securities. If you do not receive sufficient contingent quarterly payments over the term of the securities, the overall return on the securities may be less than the amount that would be paid on a conventional debt security of the issuer of comparable maturity.

 

§
Early redemption risk. The term of your investment in the securities may be limited to as short as approximately three months by the optional early redemption feature of the securities. Any early redemption of the securities will be at our discretion and will not automatically occur based on the performance of the underliers. It is more likely that we will redeem the securities when it would otherwise be advantageous for you to continue to hold the securities. As such, we will be more likely to redeem the securities when the expected interest payable on the securities is greater than the interest that would be payable on other instruments of a comparable maturity and credit rating trading in the market. In other words, we will be more likely to redeem the securities when the securities are paying an above-market coupon. If the securities are redeemed prior to maturity, no further contingent quarterly payments will be made on the securities and you may be forced to reinvest in a lower interest rate environment. There is no guarantee that you would be able to reinvest the proceeds from an investment in the securities in a comparable investment with a similar level of risk in the event the securities are redeemed prior to the maturity date. On the other hand, we will be less likely to exercise our redemption right when the expected interest payable on the securities is less than the interest that would be payable on other instruments of a comparable maturity and credit rating trading in the market. Under these circumstances, it is also more likely that you will receive few or no contingent quarterly payments and that you will suffer a significant loss on your investment at maturity.

 

§
Credit of issuer. The securities are unsecured and unsubordinated debt obligations of the issuer, Barclays Bank PLC, and are not, either directly or indirectly, an obligation of any third party. Any payment to be made on the securities, including any repayment of principal, is subject to the ability of Barclays Bank PLC to satisfy its obligations as they come due and is not guaranteed by any third party. As a result, the actual and perceived creditworthiness of Barclays Bank PLC may affect the market value of the securities and, in the event Barclays Bank PLC were to default on its obligations, you might not receive any amount owed to you under the terms of the securities.

§
You may lose some or all of your investment if any U.K. Bail-in Power is exercised by the relevant U.K. resolution authority. Notwithstanding any other agreements, arrangements or understandings between Barclays Bank PLC and any holder or beneficial owner of the securities, by acquiring the securities, each holder and beneficial owner of the securities acknowledges, accepts, agrees to be bound by, and consents to the exercise of, any U.K. Bail-in Power by the relevant U.K. resolution authority as set forth under “Consent to U.K. Bail-in Power” in this document. Accordingly, any U.K. Bail-in Power may be exercised in such a manner as to result in you and other holders and beneficial owners of the securities losing all or a part of the value of your investment in the securities or receiving a different security from the securities, which may be worth significantly less than the securities and which may have significantly fewer protections than those typically afforded to debt securities. Moreover, the relevant U.K. resolution authority may exercise the U.K. Bail-in Power without providing any advance notice to, or requiring the consent of, the holders and beneficial owners of the securities. The exercise of any U.K. Bail-in Power by the relevant U.K. resolution authority with respect to the securities will not be a default or an Event of Default (as each term is defined in the senior debt securities indenture) and the trustee will not be liable for any action that the trustee takes, or abstains from taking, in either case, in accordance with the exercise of the U.K. Bail-in Power by the relevant U.K. resolution authority with respect to the securities. See “Consent to U.K. Bail-in Power” in this document as well as “U.K. Bail-in Power,” “Risk Factors—Risks Relating to the Securities Generally—Regulatory action in the event a bank or investment firm in the Group is failing or likely to fail could materially adversely affect the value of the securities” and “Risk Factors—Risks Relating to the Securities Generally—Under the terms of the securities, you have agreed to be bound by the exercise of any U.K. Bail-in Power by the relevant U.K. resolution authority” in the accompanying prospectus supplement.

 

§
You are exposed to the market risk of each underlier, with respect to both the contingent quarterly payments, if any, and the payment at maturity, if any. Your return on the securities is not linked to a basket consisting of each underlier. Rather, it will be contingent upon the independent performance of each underlier. Unlike an instrument with a return linked to a basket of underlying assets in which risk is mitigated and diversified among all the components of the basket, you will be exposed to the risks related to each underlier. Poor performance by any underlier over the term of the securities may negatively affect your return and will not be offset or mitigated by any positive performance by the other underliers. To receive a contingent quarterly payment with respect to a determination period, each underlier must close at or above its coupon barrier level on each scheduled trading day during that determination period. In addition, if the securities have not been redeemed early and any underlier has declined to below its downside threshold level as of the final determination date, you will be fully exposed to the decline in the worst performing underlier over the term of the securities on a 1-to-1 basis, even if the other underliers have appreciated or have not declined as much. Under this scenario, the value of any such payment will be less than 65% of the stated principal amount and could be zero. Accordingly, your investment is subject to the market risk of each underlier.

 

§
Because the securities are linked to the performance of the worst performing underlier, you are exposed to greater risks of no contingent quarterly payments and sustaining a significant loss on your investment than if the securities were linked to just one underlier. The risk that you will not receive any contingent quarterly payments, or that you will suffer a significant loss on your investment, is greater if you invest in the securities as opposed to substantially similar securities that are linked to the performance of just one underlier. With three underliers, it is more likely that any underlier will close below its coupon barrier level on any scheduled trading day during any determination period than if the securities were linked to only one underlier, and therefore it is more likely that you will not receive any contingent quarterly payments. In addition, with three underliers, it is more likely that any underlier will close below its downside threshold level on the final determination date than if the securities were linked to only one underlier, and therefore it is more likely that you will suffer a significant loss on your investment.

 

§
Contingent repayment of principal applies only at maturity. You should be willing and able to hold the securities to maturity. If you sell the securities prior to maturity in the secondary market, if any, you may have to sell the securities at a loss relative to your initial investment even if the level of each underlier is above its downside threshold level.

 

§
You will not participate in any appreciation in the value of any underlier. You will not participate in any appreciation in the value of any underlier from its initial underlier value even though you will be exposed to the depreciation in the value of the worst performing underlier if the securities have not been redeemed prior to maturity and the final underlier value of the worst performing underlier is less than its downside threshold level. The return on the securities will be limited to the contingent quarterly payment that is paid with respect to each determination period during which a coupon barrier event has not occurred.

 

§
The securities will not be listed on any securities exchange, and secondary trading may be limited. Barclays Capital Inc. and other affiliates of Barclays Bank PLC intend to offer to purchase the securities in the secondary market but are not required to do so and may cease any such market making activities at any time, without notice. Even if a secondary market develops, it may not provide enough liquidity to allow you to trade or sell the securities easily. Because other dealers are not likely to make a secondary market for the securities, the price, if any, at which you may be able to trade your securities is likely to depend on the price, if any, at which Barclays Capital Inc. and other affiliates of Barclays Bank PLC are willing to buy the securities. In addition, Barclays Capital Inc. or one or more of our other affiliates may at any time hold an unsold portion of the securities (as described on the cover page of this document), which may inhibit the development of a secondary market for the securities. The securities are not designed to be short-term trading instruments. Accordingly, you should be willing and able to hold your securities to maturity.

§
The securities are subject to volatility risk.
Volatility is a measure of the degree of variation in the levels of the underliers over a period of time. The contingent quarterly payment will be determined on the pricing date based on a number of factors, including the expected volatility of the underliers. The contingent quarterly payment will be higher than the fixed rate that we would pay on a conventional debt security of the same tenor and will be higher than it otherwise would have been had the expected volatility of the underliers, calculated as of the pricing date, been lower. As volatility of an underlier increases, there will typically be a greater likelihood that (a) the closing level of that underlier will be less than its coupon barrier level during one or more determination periods and (b) the final underlier value of that underlier will be less than its downside threshold level.

 

Accordingly, you should understand that a higher contingent quarterly payment will reflect, among other things, an indication of a greater likelihood that you will (a) not receive contingent quarterly payments with respect to one or more determination periods and/or (b) incur a loss of principal at maturity than would have been the case had the contingent quarterly payment been lower. In addition, actual volatility over the term of the securities may be significantly higher than the expected volatility at the time the terms of the securities were determined. If actual volatility is higher than expected, you will face an even greater risk that you will not receive contingent quarterly payments and/or that you will lose a significant portion or all of your principal at maturity for the reasons described above.

 

§
The contingent quarterly payment is based on the closing level of each underlier throughout the determination periods. Whether the contingent quarterly payment will be made with respect to a determination period will be based on the closing level of each underlier on each scheduled trading day during that determination period. As a result, you will not know whether you will receive the contingent quarterly payment with respect to a determination period until the end of that determination period. Moreover, because each contingent quarterly payment is based solely on the closing level of each underlier on any scheduled trading day during a determination period, if the closing level of any underlier on any scheduled trading day during a determination period is less than its coupon barrier level, you will not receive any contingent quarterly payment with respect to that determination period, even if the closing level of that underlier was higher on other days during that determination period.

 

§
Investing in the securities is not equivalent to investing in any or all underliers or the securities composing the underliers. Investors in the securities will not have voting rights or rights to receive dividends or other distributions or any other rights with respect to the securities composing the underliers.

 

§
The securities are subject to small-capitalization companies risk with respect to the RTY Index. The RTY Index tracks companies that are considered small-capitalization companies. These companies often have greater stock price volatility, lower trading volume and less liquidity than large-capitalization companies, and therefore securities linked to the RTY Index may be more volatile than an investment linked to an index with component stocks issued by large-capitalization companies. Stock prices of small-capitalization companies are also more vulnerable than those of large-capitalization companies to adverse business and economic developments. In addition, small-capitalization companies are typically less stable financially than large-capitalization companies and may depend on a small number of key personnel, making them more vulnerable to loss of personnel. Small-capitalization companies are often subject to less analyst coverage and may be in early, and less predictable, periods of their corporate existences. Such companies tend to have smaller revenues, less diverse product lines, smaller shares of their product or service markets, fewer financial resources and less competitive strengths than large-capitalization companies and are more susceptible to adverse developments related to their products.

 

§
There are risks associated with investments in securities linked to the value of non-U.S. equity securities with respect to the SX5E Index. The equity securities composing the SX5E Index are issued by non-U.S. companies in non-U.S. securities markets. Investments in securities linked to the value of such non-U.S. equity securities, such as the securities, involve risks associated with the securities markets in the home countries of the issuers of those non-U.S. equity securities, including risks of volatility in those markets, governmental intervention in those markets and cross shareholdings in companies in certain countries. Also, there is generally less publicly available information about companies in some of these jurisdictions than there is about U.S. companies that are subject to the reporting requirements of the SEC, and generally non-U.S. companies are subject to accounting, auditing and financial reporting standards and requirements and securities trading rules different from those applicable to U.S. reporting companies. The prices of securities in non-U.S. markets may be affected by political, economic, financial and social factors in those countries, or global regions, including changes in government, economic and fiscal policies and currency exchange laws.

 

§
The securities do not provide direct exposure to fluctuations in exchange rates between the U.S. dollar and the euro with respect to the SX5E Index. The SX5E Index is composed of non-U.S. securities denominated in euros. Because the level of the SX5E Index is also calculated in euros (and not in U.S. dollars), the performance of the SX5E Index will not be adjusted for exchange rate fluctuations between the U.S. dollar and the euro. In addition, any payments on the securities determined based in part on the performance of the SX5E Index will not be adjusted for exchange rate fluctuations between the U.S. dollar and the euro. Therefore, holders of the securities will not benefit from any appreciation of the euro relative to the U.S. dollar.

§
Adjustments to the underliers could adversely affect the value of the securities. The sponsor of an underlier may add, delete, substitute or adjust the securities composing that underlier or make other methodological changes to that underlier that could affect its performance. The calculation agent will calculate the value to be used as the closing level of an underlier in the event of certain material changes in or modifications to that underlier. In addition, the sponsor of an underlier may also discontinue or suspend calculation or publication of that underlier at any time. Under these circumstances, the calculation agent may select a successor index that the calculation agent determines to be comparable to the discontinued underlier or, if no successor index is available, the calculation agent will determine the value to be used as the closing level of that underlier. Any of these actions could adversely affect the value of the relevant underlier and, consequently, the value of the securities. See “Reference Assets—Indices—Adjustments Relating to Securities with an Index as a Reference Asset” in the accompanying prospectus supplement.

 

§
Hedging and trading activity by the issuer and its affiliates could potentially adversely affect the value of the securities. Hedging or trading activities of the issuer’s affiliates and of any other hedging counterparty with respect to the securities could adversely affect the values of the underliers and, as a result, could decrease the amount an investor may receive on the securities at maturity, if any. Any of these hedging or trading activities on or prior to the pricing date could potentially increase the initial underlier values and, as a result, the coupon barrier levels, which are the levels at or above which the respective underliers must close on each scheduled trading day during a determination period in order for you to receive a contingent quarterly payment with respect to that determination period or, if the securities are not redeemed prior to maturity, the downside threshold levels, which are the levels at or above which the respective underliers must close on the final determination date in order for you to avoid being exposed to the negative price performance of the worst performing underlier at maturity. Additionally, such hedging or trading activities during the term of the securities could potentially affect the values of the underliers on any scheduled trading day during the determination periods or on the final determination date and, accordingly, whether investors will receive one or more contingent quarterly payments and, if the securities are not redeemed prior to maturity, the payment at maturity, if any.

 

§
The market price of the securities will be influenced by many unpredictable factors. Several factors will influence the value of the securities in the secondary market and the price at which Barclays Capital Inc. and other affiliates of Barclays Bank PLC may be willing to purchase or sell the securities in the secondary market. Although we expect that generally the values of the underliers on any day will affect the value of the securities more than any other single factor, other factors that may influence the value of the securities include:

 

othe volatility (frequency and magnitude of changes in value) of each underlier;

 

owhether the closing level of any underlier has been, or is expected to be, below its coupon barrier level on any scheduled trading day during any determination period and whether the final underlier value of any underlier is expected to be below its downside threshold level;

 

ocorrelation (or lack of correlation) of the underliers;

 

odividend rates on the securities composing the underliers;

 

ointerest and yield rates in the market;

 

otime remaining until the securities mature;

 

osupply and demand for the securities;

 

ogeopolitical conditions and economic, financial, political, regulatory and judicial events that affect the securities composing the underliers and that may affect the final underlier values;

 

othe exchange rates relative to the U.S. dollar with respect to each of the currencies in which the securities composing the SX5E Index trade; and

 

oany actual or anticipated changes in our credit ratings or credit spreads.

 

The values of the underliers may be, and have recently been, volatile, and we can give you no assurance that the volatility will lessen. See “Russell 2000® Index Overview,” “S&P 500® Index Overview” and “EURO STOXX 50® Index Overview” below. You may receive less, and possibly significantly less, than the stated principal amount per security if you try to sell your securities prior to maturity.

 

§
The estimated value of your securities is expected to be lower than the initial issue price of your securities. The estimated value of your securities on the pricing date is expected to be lower, and may be significantly lower, than the initial issue price of your securities. The difference between the initial issue price of your securities and the estimated value of the securities is expected as a result of certain factors, such as any sales commissions expected to be paid to Barclays Capital Inc. or another affiliate of ours, any selling concessions, discounts, commissions or fees expected to be allowed or paid to non-affiliated intermediaries, the estimated profit that we or any of our affiliates expect to earn in connection with structuring the securities, the estimated cost that we may incur in hedging our obligations under the securities, and estimated development and other costs that we may incur in connection with the securities.

§
The estimated value of your securities might be lower if such estimated value were based on the levels at which our debt securities trade in the secondary market. The estimated value of your securities on the pricing date is based on a number of variables, including our internal funding rates. Our internal funding rates may vary from the levels at which our benchmark debt securities trade in the secondary market. As a result of this difference, the estimated values referenced above might be lower if such estimated values were based on the levels at which our benchmark debt securities trade in the secondary market.

 

§
The estimated value of the securities is based on our internal pricing models, which may prove to be inaccurate and may be different from the pricing models of other financial institutions. The estimated value of your securities on the pricing date is based on our internal pricing models, which take into account a number of variables and are based on a number of subjective assumptions, which may or may not materialize. These variables and assumptions are not evaluated or verified on an independent basis. Further, our pricing models may be different from other financial institutions’ pricing models and the methodologies used by us to estimate the value of the securities may not be consistent with those of other financial institutions that may be purchasers or sellers of securities in the secondary market. As a result, the secondary market price of your securities may be materially different from the estimated value of the securities determined by reference to our internal pricing models.

 

§
The estimated value of your securities is not a prediction of the prices at which you may sell your securities in the secondary market, if any, and such secondary market prices, if any, will likely be lower than the initial issue price of your securities and may be lower than the estimated value of your securities. The estimated value of the securities will not be a prediction of the prices at which Barclays Capital Inc., other affiliates of ours or third parties may be willing to purchase the securities from you in secondary market transactions (if they are willing to purchase, which they are not obligated to do). The price at which you may be able to sell your securities in the secondary market at any time will be influenced by many factors that cannot be predicted, such as market conditions, and any bid and ask spread for similar sized trades, and may be substantially less than our estimated value of the securities. Further, as secondary market prices of your securities take into account the levels at which our debt securities trade in the secondary market, and do not take into account our various costs related to the securities such as fees, commissions, discounts, and the costs of hedging our obligations under the securities, secondary market prices of your securities will likely be lower than the initial issue price of your securities. As a result, the price at which Barclays Capital Inc., other affiliates of ours or third parties may be willing to purchase the securities from you in secondary market transactions, if any, will likely be lower than the price you paid for your securities, and any sale prior to the maturity date could result in a substantial loss to you.

 

§
The temporary price at which we may initially buy the securities in the secondary market and the value we may initially use for customer account statements, if we provide any customer account statements at all, may not be indicative of future prices of your securities. Assuming that all relevant factors remain constant after the pricing date, the price at which Barclays Capital Inc. may initially buy or sell the securities in the secondary market (if Barclays Capital Inc. makes a market in the securities, which it is not obligated to do) and the value that we may initially use for customer account statements, if we provide any customer account statements at all, may exceed our estimated value of the securities on the pricing date, as well as the secondary market value of the securities, for a temporary period after the initial issue date of the securities. The price at which Barclays Capital Inc. may initially buy or sell the securities in the secondary market and the value that we may initially use for customer account statements may not be indicative of future prices of your securities.

 

§
We and our affiliates, and any dealer participating in the distribution of the securities, may engage in various activities or make determinations that could materially affect your securities in various ways and create conflicts of interest. We and our affiliates play a variety of roles in connection with the issuance of the securities, as described below. In performing these roles, our and our affiliates’ economic interests are potentially adverse to your interests as an investor in the securities.

 

In connection with our normal business activities and in connection with hedging our obligations under the securities, we and our affiliates make markets in and trade various financial instruments or products for our accounts and for the account of our clients and otherwise provide investment banking and other financial services with respect to these financial instruments and products. These financial instruments and products may include securities, derivative instruments or assets that may relate to the underliers or their components. In any such market making, trading and hedging activity, investment banking and other financial services, we or our affiliates may take positions or take actions that are inconsistent with, or adverse to, the investment objectives of the holders of the securities. We and our affiliates have no obligation to take the needs of any buyer, seller or holder of the securities into account in conducting these activities. Such market making, trading and hedging activity, investment banking and other financial services may negatively impact the value of the securities.

 

In addition, the role played by Barclays Capital Inc., as the agent for the securities, could present significant conflicts of interest with the role of Barclays Bank PLC, as issuer of the securities. For example, Barclays Capital Inc. or its representatives may derive compensation or financial benefit from the distribution of the securities and such compensation or financial benefit may serve as an incentive to sell the securities instead of other investments. Furthermore, we and our affiliates establish the offering price of the securities for initial sale to the public, and the offering price is not based upon any independent verification or valuation.

Furthermore, if any dealer participating in the distribution of the securities or any of its affiliates conducts hedging activities for us in connection with the securities, that participating dealer or its affiliates will expect to realize a projected profit from such hedging activities, and this projected profit will be in addition to any selling concession that the participating dealer realizes for the sale of the securities to you. This additional projected profit may create a further incentive for the participating dealer to sell the securities to you.

 

In addition to the activities described above, we will also act as the calculation agent for the securities. As calculation agent, we will determine any values of the underliers and make any other determinations necessary to calculate any payments on the securities. In making these determinations, we may be required to make discretionary judgments, including determining whether a market disruption event has occurred on any date that the value of an underlier is to be determined; if an underlier is discontinued or if the sponsor of an underlier fails to publish that underlier, selecting a successor index or, if no successor index is available, determining any value necessary to calculate any payments on the securities; and calculating the value of an underlier on any date of determination in the event of certain changes in or modifications to that underlier. In making these discretionary judgments, our economic interests are potentially adverse to your interests as an investor in the securities, and any of these determinations may adversely affect any payments on the securities.

 

§
Tax treatment. Significant aspects of the tax treatment of the securities are uncertain. You should consult your tax advisor about your tax situation. See “Additional provisions—Tax considerations” below.

Additional Information about the Securities

 

Please read this information in conjunction with the terms on the cover page of this document.

 

Additional provisions:
 
Minimum ticketing size:
$1,000 / 1 security
Tax considerations:

You should review carefully the sections entitled “Material U.S. Federal Income Tax Consequences—Tax Consequences to U.S. Holders—Notes Treated as Prepaid Forward or Derivative Contracts with Associated Contingent Coupons” and, if you are a non-U.S. holder, “—Tax Consequences to Non-U.S. Holders,” in the accompanying prospectus supplement.

 

In determining our reporting responsibilities, if any, we intend to treat (i) the securities for U.S. federal income tax purposes as prepaid forward contracts with associated contingent coupons and (ii) any contingent quarterly payments as ordinary income, as described in the section entitled “Material U.S. Federal Income Tax Consequences—Tax Consequences to U.S. Holders—Notes Treated as Prepaid Forward or Derivative Contracts with Associated Contingent Coupons” in the accompanying prospectus supplement. Our special tax counsel, Davis Polk & Wardwell LLP, has advised that it believes this treatment to be reasonable, but that there are other reasonable treatments that the Internal Revenue Service (the “IRS”) or a court may adopt.

 

Sale, exchange or redemption of a security. Assuming the treatment described above is respected, upon a sale or exchange of the securities (including upon early redemption or redemption at maturity), you should recognize capital gain or loss equal to the difference between the amount realized on the sale or exchange and your tax basis in the securities, which should equal the amount you paid to acquire the securities (assuming contingent quarterly payments are properly treated as ordinary income, consistent with the position referred to above). This gain or loss should be short-term capital gain or loss unless you hold the securities for more than one year, in which case the gain or loss should be long-term capital gain or loss, whether or not you are an initial purchaser of the securities at the issue price. The deductibility of capital losses is subject to limitations. If you sell your securities between the time your right to a contingent quarterly payment is fixed and the time it is paid, it is likely that you will be treated as receiving ordinary income equal to the contingent quarterly payment. Although uncertain, it is possible that proceeds received from the sale or exchange of your securities prior to a determination period-end date but that can be attributed to an expected contingent quarterly payment could be treated as ordinary income. You should consult your tax advisor regarding this issue.

 

As noted above, there are other reasonable treatments that the IRS or a court may adopt, in which case the timing and character of any income or loss on the securities could be materially affected. In addition, in 2007 the U.S. Treasury Department and the IRS released a notice requesting comments on the U.S. federal income tax treatment of “prepaid forward contracts” and similar instruments. The notice focuses in particular on whether to require investors in these instruments to accrue income over the term of their investment. It also asks for comments on a number of related topics, including the character of income or loss with respect to these instruments and the relevance of factors such as the nature of the underlying property to which the instruments are linked. While the notice requests comments on appropriate transition rules and effective dates, any Treasury regulations or other guidance promulgated after consideration of these issues could materially affect the tax consequences of an investment in the securities, possibly with retroactive effect. You should consult your tax advisor regarding the U.S. federal income tax consequences of an investment in the securities, including possible alternative treatments and the issues presented by this notice.

 

Non-U.S. holders. Insofar as we have responsibility as a withholding agent, we do not currently intend to treat contingent quarterly payments to non-U.S. holders (as defined in the accompanying prospectus supplement) as subject to U.S. withholding tax. However, non-U.S. holders should in any event expect to be required to provide appropriate Forms W-8 or other documentation in order to establish an exemption from backup withholding, as described under the heading “—Information Reporting and Backup Withholding” in the accompanying prospectus supplement. If any withholding is required, we will not be required to pay any additional amounts with respect to amounts withheld.

 

Treasury regulations under Section 871(m) generally impose a withholding tax on certain “dividend equivalents” under certain “equity linked instruments.” A recent IRS notice excludes from the scope of Section 871(m) instruments issued prior to January 1, 2021 that do not have a “delta of one” with respect to underlying securities that could pay U.S.-source dividends for U.S. federal income tax purposes (each an “Underlying Security”). Based on our determination that the securities do not have a “delta of one” within the meaning of the regulations, we expect that these regulations will not apply to the securities with regard to non-U.S. holders. Our determination is not binding on the IRS, and the

  IRS may disagree with this determination. Section 871(m) is complex and its application may depend on your particular circumstances, including whether you enter into other transactions with respect to an Underlying Security. If necessary, further information regarding the potential application of Section 871(m) will be provided in the pricing supplement for the securities. You should consult your tax advisor regarding the potential application of Section 871(m) to the securities.
