Structured products

Are you looking to potentially increase the return of your portfolio, in a risk managed environment?

Structured products and derivatives are an excellent way to meet specific needs, such as expected returns for income, frequency of cash flows and investment horizons  whilst respecting constraints such as legal, fiscal and risk appetite. 

Structured products are created using several financial instruments, often combining equities, currencies and interest rates  with more sophisticated components.
