Risk factors
Please see the Preliminary Offering Documents for a description of certain risks related to this investment, including, but not limited to, the following:
Depending on the performance of the Market Measure as measured shortly before the maturity date, your investment may result in a loss; there is no guaranteed return of principal.
Your investment return is limited to the return represented by the Step Up Payment and may be less than a comparable investment directly in the Market Measure or the commodity held by the Market Measure.
Payments on the notes are subject to the credit risk of BNS, and actual or perceived changes in the creditworthiness of BNS are expected to affect the value of the notes. If BNS becomes insolvent or is unable to pay its obligations, you may lose your entire investment.
The initial estimated value of the notes on the pricing date will be less than their public offering price.
If you attempt to sell the notes prior to maturity, their market value may be lower than both the public offering price and the initial estimated value of the notes on the pricing date.
You will have no rights of a holder of the Market Measure or the commodity held by the Market Measure, and you will not be entitled to receive shares of the Market Measure or the commodity held by the Market Measure.
There are liquidity and management risks associated with the Market Measure.
The performance of the Market Measure may not correlate with the performance of the commodity held by the Market Measure as well as the net asset value per share of the Market Measure, especially during periods of market volatility when the liquidity and the market price of shares of the Market Measure and/or the commodity held by the Market Measure may be adversely affected, sometimes materially.
If the liquidity of the commodity held by the Market Measure is limited, the value of the Market Measure and, therefore, the return on the notes, would likely be impaired.
Suspension or disruptions of market trading in the commodity held by the Market Measure may adversely affect the value of your notes.
The notes will not be regulated by the U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission.
The performance of the Market Measure may be adversely influenced by silver prices, which may change unpredictably and adversely affect the value of the notes in unforeseeable ways.
There are risks associated with commodities trading on the London Bullion Market Association.
The COVID-19 virus may have an adverse impact on BNS.

Final terms will be set on the pricing date within the given range for the specified Market-Linked Investment. Please see the Preliminary Offering Documents for complete product disclosure, including related risks and tax disclosure.
