Jargon Buster - K


A Kick-Out is a feature often used in Structured Products that allows for the product to mature early and a fixed return to be paid, provided certain market conditions are met (for example, if the Underlying closes at or above a given level on a set date). Please also see ‘Autocall’.

Knock-In Event/Knock-Out Event

Is an event on a relevant valuation day, which causes a breach of a relevant barrier as defined in the terms of that Structured Product.

We've put together a glossary of terminology associated with structured products.

While these are standard definitions, it's important that you read the relevant product literature before investing, as providers might use a slightly different definition to those detailed here.

Thank you. Your details have been added to our mailing list.
