ETN Risks

Important information about the VelocityShares ETNs is contained within the current prospectuses. For more complete information regarding the VelocityShares ETNs, download a prospectus from this site, call 1-877-5-VELOCITY or 1-203-992-4301, or write to Prospectus Inquiry, VelocityShares, 19 Old Kings Highway S, Darien, CT, 06820 to request a prospectus. You should read the prospectus carefully before making an investment decision.

Not all risks described below will apply to all products. Please refer to the applicable prospectus supplement for a detailed discussion of risks applicable to a particular ETN.

The ETNs are only suitable for knowledgeable investors seeking daily exposure (including inverse or leveraged exposure) to the underlying Index. The ETNs are intended for short term trading, therefore investors with longer term objectives should carefully consider whether the ETNs are appropriate for their investment portfolio.

Because certain ETNs are linked to the daily performance of the applicable underlying Index and include either inverse and/or leveraged exposure, changes in the market price of the underlying futures will have a greater likelihood of causing such ETNs to be worth zero than if such ETNs were not linked to the inverse or leveraged return of the applicable underlying Index.

The ETNs do not guarantee any return of principal at maturity and do not pay any interest during their term.

Although we intend to list the ETNs on NYSE Arca or NASDAQ, a trading market for your ETNs may not develop. We are not required to maintain any listing of the ETNs on NYSE Arca or any other exchange.

The trading price of the ETNs may vary considerably before any valuation date (as defined in each prospectus), due, among other factors, to fluctuations in the price or the volatility of the underlying investment product, and other events that are difficult to predict. At higher levels of volatility, and since the ETNs are not principal protected, there is a significant chance of a complete loss of ETN value even if the performance of the index is flat.

The closing indicative value on each valuation date is determined in part by reference to the daily percentage change in the level of the underlying index. As a result, to the extent the closing indicative value of the ETNs is greater than or less than the initial indicative value, subsequent changes in the level of the index may have a bigger or smaller impact on the closing indicative value of the ETNs than if the closing indicative value remained constant at the initial indicative value. For example, assuming an initial indicative value of $100, if the closing indicative value of the ETNs increases above $100, a subsequent 1% daily change in the level of the index will result in more than a $1 decrease in the closing indicative value of the ETNs. Likewise, if the closing indicative value of the ETNs is less than $100, a 1% increase in the level of the index will result in less than a $1 increase in the closing indicative value of the ETNs.

If the level of the underlying index decreases or does not increase sufficiently (or if it increases or does not decrease sufficiently in the case of inverse ETNs), to offset the effect of the Daily Investor Fee and any other applicable fees over the term of the ETNs, the investor will receive less than the principal amount of his investment upon early redemption, acceleration or maturity of the Notes.

Prior to maturity, you may, subject to certain restrictions described in the prospectus, offer the applicable minimum number of your ETNs to the issuer for redemption on an Early Redemption Date (as defined in the prospectus). You must offer for redemption at least the applicable minimum number of ETNs (typically 25’000 or 50’000 depending on the product) as set forth in the pricing supplement, or an integral multiple in excess thereof, at one time in order to exercise your right to cause the issuer to redeem your ETNs on any Early Redemption Date. In addition, the issuer may charge investors a redemption charge of a percentage of the stated principal amount of any ETN that is redeemed at the investor’s option, at a rate as indicated in the applicable pricing supplement. Please see the applicable pricing supplement for fees or charges relating to the ETNs.

Any payment on the Securities is subject to the ability of the issuer to satisfy its obligations as they become due.

The risks listed above are not exhaustive. Investors should review the prospectus for each ETN, including all risk factors set forth therein, and consult their independent tax, accounting, legal and financial advisors before investing in any ETN.
