An investment in the Barclays E TN+ Select MLP E TNs (the “E TNs”) involves significant risks, including possible loss of principal and may not be suitable for all investors. For
a description of the main risks, see “Risk Factors” in the applicable prospectus supplement and pricing supplement. The E TNs 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. The ETNs are riskier than ordinary unsecured debt securities
and have no principal protection. The E TNs are speculative and may exhibit high volatility. The E TNs are subject to certain investor fees, which will have a negative effect on
the value of the E TNs. Owning the E TNs is not the same as owning interests in the index constituents or a security directly linked to the performance of the Index. Barclays

Is a ‘Presence Exam’ in Your Future, RIA?
SEC exam chief Andrew Bowden said at a January hedge fund conference in
New York that the agency’s Office of Compliance Inspections and Examinations
will use the “presence exams” that it used to audit newly registered private fund
advisors on never-examined advisors in 2015.
“We will use the presence exam process to examine non-private fund advi-
sors that have been registered for more than three years but not yet examined,”
Bowden told ThinkAdvisor.com through an SEC spokesperson after his comments
at the Practising Law Institute’s hedge fund compliance conference on Jan. 7.
Included among the SEC’s current exam initiatives are: presence exams of
newly registered private fund advisors, which started in late 2012 and are near
completion; exams of never-been-examined investment advisors, which is “well
underway,” according to Bowden; and exams of never-been-examined investment
companies (or “fund complexes”), as set out in the SEC’s 2015 priorities list.
Presence exams are more limited in scope than a traditional exam.
Brian Hamburger, of the New Jersey-based Hamburger Law Firm and its affiliate MarketCounsel, which offers RIA compliance services, said that while he
“applauds” the SEC for increasing its presence exams, the SEC is “really talking
about reallocating from one type of advisor exam to another advisor exam,”
which doesn’t equate to increasing the actual number of advisor exams. (For
more on SEC initiatives regarding RIA exams, see page 47.)
