ETFtrack Comment:
The New GAZB ETNs offers a similar exposure as the existing GAZ ETNs, but includes certain differences, including a reduced investor fee and an issuer redemption feature.

The ETNs are riskier than ordinary unsecured debt securities and have no principal protection. The ETNs are unsecured debt obligations of the issuer, Barclays Bank PLC, and are not, either directly or indirectly, an obligation of or guaranteed by any third party. An investment in the ETNs involves significant risks, including possible loss of principal, and may not be suitable for all investors.
