- ii -





of America; subject to certain exceptions, Instruments may not be offered, sold or delivered within the United States
of America or to, or for the account or benefit of, U.S. persons.
If the relevant Final Terms in respect of any Instruments include a legend entitled "Prohibition of Sales to
Retail Investors in the European Economic Area", the Instruments, from 1 January 2018, are not intended to
be offered, sold or otherwise made available to and, with effect from such date, should not be offered, sold
or otherwise made available to any retail investor in the European Economic Area ("EEA"). For these
purposes, a retail investor means a person who is one (or more) of: (i) a retail client as defined in point (11)
of Article 4(1) of Directive 2014/65/EU ("MiFID II"); (ii) a customer within the meaning of Directive 2002/92/EC
("IMD"), where that customer would not qualify as a professional client as defined in point (10) of Article 4(1)
of MiFID II; or (iii) not a qualified investor as defined in Directive 2003/71/EC (as amended, the "Prospectus
Directive"). Consequently no key information document required by Regulation (EU) No 1286/2014 (the
"PRIIPs Regulation") for offering or selling the Instruments or otherwise making them available to retail

making them available to any retail investor in the EEA may be unlawful under the PRIIPS Regulation.

"Prohibition of Sales to Retail Investors in the European Economic Area" as "Not Applicable", except to the extent
sub-paragraph (ii) below may apply, any offer of Instruments in any Member State of the European Economic Area
which has implemented the Prospectus Directive (each, a "Relevant Member State") wil be made pursuant to an
exemption under the Prospectus Directive, as implemented in that Relevant Member State, from the requirement to
publish a prospectus for offers of Instruments. Accordingly any person making or intending to make an offer in that
Relevant Member State of Instruments which are the subject of an offering/placement contemplated in this
Prospectus as completed by final terms or a drawdown prospectus in relation to the offer of those Instruments may
only do so (i) in circumstances in which no obligation arises for the Issuer or any Dealer to publish a prospectus
pursuant to Article 3 of the Prospectus Directive or supplement a prospectus pursuant to Article 16 of the Prospectus
Directive, in each case, in relation to such offer, or (i ) if a prospectus for such offer has been approved by the
competent authority in that Relevant Member State or, where appropriate, approved in another Relevant Member
State and notified to the competent authority in that Relevant Member State and (in either case) published, all in
accordance with the Prospectus Directive, provided that any such prospectus has subsequently been completed by
final terms which specify or is a drawdown prospectus which specifies that offers may be made other than pursuant
to Article 3(2) of the Prospectus Directive in that Relevant Member State and such offer is made in the period
beginning and ending on the dates specified for such purpose in such prospectus or final terms or drawdown
prospectus, as applicable and the Issuer has consented in writing to its use for the purpose of such offer. Except to
the extent sub-paragraph (ii) above may apply, neither the Issuer nor any Dealer have authorised, nor do they
authorise, the making of any offer of Instruments in circumstances in which an obligation arises for the Issuer or any
Dealer to publish or supplement a prospectus for such offer.
The Issuer does not consent to the use of the Prospectus for the subsequent resale or final placement of the
Instruments.
This Prospectus may only be used for the purpose for which it has been published.
Neither this Prospectus nor any final terms constitute an offer or an invitation by or on behalf of the Issuer
or the Dealers to any person to subscribe for or to purchase any Instruments. Neither this Prospectus nor
any final terms may be used for the purpose of an offer or solicitation by anyone in any jurisdiction in which
such offer or solicitation is not authorised or to any person to whom it is unlawful to make such an offer or
solicitation.

ANY) NAMED AS THE STABILISING MANAGER(S) (OR PERSONS ACTING ON BEHALF OF ANY
STABILISING MANAGER(S)) IN THE APPLICABLE FINAL TERMS MAY OVER-ALLOT INSTRUMENTS OR
EFFECT TRANSACTIONS WITH A VIEW TO SUPPORTING THE MARKET PRICE OF THE INSTRUMENTS AT
A LEVEL HIGHER THAN THAT WHICH MIGHT OTHERWISE PREVAIL. HOWEVER, STABILISATION MAY NOT
NECESSARILY OCCUR. ANY STABILISATION ACTION MAY BEGIN ON OR AFTER THE DATE ON WHICH
ADEQUATE PUBLIC DISCLOSURE OF THE TERMS OF THE OFFER OF THE RELEVANT TRANCHE OF
INSTRUMENTS IS MADE AND, IF BEGUN, MAY CEASE AT ANY TIME, BUT IT MUST END NO LATER THAN
THE EARLIER OF 30 DAYS AFTER THE ISSUE DATE OF THE RELEVANT TRANCHE OF INSTRUMENTS AND
60 DAYS AFTER THE DATE OF THE ALLOTMENT OF THE RELEVANT TRANCHE OF INSTRUMENTS. ANY
STABILISATION ACTION OR OVER-ALLOTMENT MUST BE CONDUCTED BY THE RELEVANT STABILISING
MANAGER(S) (OR PERSON(S) ACTING ON BEHALF OF ANY STABILISING MANAGER(S)) IN ACCORDANCE

Description
of The Bank expects the market and competitive environment for the financing of
any known trends commercial real estate to remain very demanding throughout 2017.
affecting
the
Issuer and the The total economy, financial and capital markets as well as commercial property
industries
in markets are exposed to significant uncertainty factors, risks and threats. These
which it operates include the low interest rate environment, but also the risk of increasing interest
rates, a potential resurgence of the European sovereign debt crisis, diverging
monetary policy between the US and the euro zone, United Kingdom's (UK) exit
from the European Union (EU), overdue reforms and structural economic issues in
certain countries across the euro zone, weak economic investments, a stagnating
global trade, the risk of a hard landing for China, corrections on capital and
financial markets due to unfulfil ed expectations in the wake of the presidential
election in the US, geopolitical risks and uncertainties as well as a risk of global
political stances shifting towards protectionism and demarcation.
Against the risks and uncertainties the economic development in different
economies in 2017 is likely to show a mixed picture. In the Bank's view, it is likely
that the economic development will be weaker in Europe compared to North
America and the Asia-Pacific region. For the euro zone a stable growth
comparable to the previous year's growth figure is likely. Some other European
countries like Poland and Sweden are expected to show a more dynamic growth
than the euro zone, while the UK's economy is likely to grow at a similar pace as in
2016, however burdened by significant uncertainties surrounding the exit from the
EU. A moderate rise in economic growth compared to 2016 is expected for the US;
while for China a further slight decline in growth rates is likely.
The above mentioned risks and uncertainties are also relevant for the financial and
capital markets and might cause significant distortions if they were to materialise to
a considerable extent. However, a higher volatility on the financial and capital
markets is anticipated for this year. Markets are likely to remain liquid and
receptive for securities issues and refinancing. For 2017, a moderate upward
pressure on interest rates not only in the US but also in the euro zone is projected.
Several factors are expected to have impact on the development of commercial
property values during the current year. Whilst the low interest rate environment
will continue to prevail, alongside a stable economy with gradual y improving
labour markets, the market faces greater uncertainty factors as mentioned above.
Against this background a largely stable development in the market values of
commercial property is anticipated for many markets, in particular for many
European markets relevant for Aareal Bank as well as in China, while in the US a
slight increase in values is possible on the back of a relatively favourable economic
outlook. However, rising interest rates, especial y if the increases are stronger than
expected, pose a certain risk for this development.
The intensive competition in financing commercial property of the previous years is
likely to persist in many markets in 2017, with less of readiness to lower margins.
Loan-to-value ratios are expected to remain stable.
In the banking business, the trend towards a tighter regulatory framework is set to

- 2 -





persist in the Bank's view. Moreover, an increasing volatility of requirements
presents an additional chal enge for institutions: besides new requirements, this
volatility is particularly a function of the concrete specifications for instruments
implemented by the European Central Bank (ECB) and / or the national
supervisory authorities.
The Bank expects stable development for the German housing and commercial
property industries in the current and the next year as a result of the constant
rental income and the stability of property values. The persistent low interest rate
environment, which is relevant for the results from the Bank's deposit-taking
business, will continue to place a significant burden on segment results.
Aareon AG pursues a growth strategy for Aareon Group on the basis of the Aareon
Flight Plan, which forms part of the "Aareal 2020" future programme. Every
subsidiary in the Aareon Group derives its individual growth targets accordingly.
