This website includes information relating to indices. It is not possible to invest directly in an index. Exposure to assets or strategies represented by the relevant Index is made through the entry into of, or the acquisition of (as applicable), any transaction or financial instrument, product or investment (each, a “Product”) that at any time may be related or linked to, based on, developed in connection with, or may otherwise use or track the relevant index. BBVA does not endorse or make any representation or warranty, express or implied, in connection with any transaction or any Product that references the relevant index including as to the advisability of purchasing or entering into a Product or the results to be obtained by any party using the relevant index in connection with a Product. This website contains no provisions relating to any Product. Furthermore, BBVA has no obligation or liability in connection with the administration, marketing or trading of any such Product. The conclusion of any transaction with BBVA (if any) is subject to BBVA internal approvals and formal agreement, none of which is (or shall be deemed to be) given in, or contemplated by, this website. All statements, information and data in this website are provided for information purposes and shall not in any case be deemed to constitute an offer, invitation, solicitation, investment advice or a recommendation to adopt any investment strategy, to enter into any transaction or to trade, nor shall they form the basis of any contract, commitment or investment decision of any kind.
During the course of its businesses, BBVA may enter into or promote, offer or sell Products that may be related or linked to, based on, developed in connection with, or may otherwise use or track the relevant index. In addition, BBVA may have, or may have had, interests or positions, or may buy, sell or otherwise trade positions in or relating to the relevant index or any of its components or may invest or engage in transactions with other persons, or on behalf of such persons, relating to any of these. Such activity could have an impact, positive or negative, on the level of the relevant index. BBVA does not have any duty (a) to consider the circumstances of any person when participating in such transactions or (b) to conduct themselves in a manner that is favourable to anyone with exposure to the relevant index.

Historical performance of the relevant index should not be taken as an indication of future performance, and no assurance can be given as to the levels or performance of the relevant index on a future date. Past performance may be simulated past performance (including back-testing) which may involve the relevant index methodology adjustments where necessary. In calculating hypothetical back-tested Index levels, BBVA may have used its own internal models and calculation methods or applied disruption or other provisions specified in the relevant methodologies differently than it otherwise would have applied such provisions in a “live” calculation scenario.

BBVA does not guarantee that there will be no errors or omissions in the calculation or publication of the indices. BBVA shall not have any liability for any such errors or omissions, but will use commercially reasonable endeavours to correct any that occur. BBVA has no obligation to point out errors in the index to third parties including but not limited to investors and/or financial intermediaries in respect of any Product linked thereto.
