Lock-in price

Lock in your target price of a share in advance with the ability to decide your strike price.

Flexibility

Risks

Market risk

As the performance of an ELN is linked to the underlying shares, fluctuation in the value of the underlying shares can adversely affect the value of the ELN.

Credit risk

ELNs are backed by the issuer which issued the underlying shares. If the issuer defaults, investors may lose all or part of their investment.

Principal-at-risk

ELNs are not principal-protected. There is a risk that investors could lose part or their entire principal investment amount.

Liquidity risk

The secondary market is typically illiquid. Investors should not invest in an ELN unless they have sufficient funds to stay invested until maturity.
