Structured Products

Building resilient investments

Structured products are designed to protect your capital or in some cases give positive returns when a direct investment in the market would have produced a loss.

Equity structured products

Bolster your investment portfolio by choosing an equity-linked product that stimulates asset growth. This can be achieved either as an alternative or as a complement to your equity portfolio or unit trust. 

Income structured products

Choose an investment product designed to produce targeted returns for you while minimising the risk of capital loss. They are ideal if you require an ongoing stream of income or coupons.

  • Know how structured products work

    Structured products typically provide you with returns linked to the performance of an underlying asset or benchmark, such as equities, commodities, interest rates and foreign exchange rates. This exposure to an underlying asset can be through individual securities, a basket of securities or even market indices. 
  • Understand capital protection

    In times of adverse market performance, capital protection is used to ensure that you receive your capital protected level at maturity. Taking your risk specifications into consideration, we can protect a portion or all of your invested capital.  
    • Hard capital protection is geared to guarantee that you receive back your capital, or a defined portion of it, even if the underlying investment does not perform
    • Soft capital protection is dependent on the underlying asset’s level at maturity. In many cases these products can be designed to provide you geared access to an investment with limited downside protection.
    Note: capital protection is an attractive element of structured products, but in some cases it may reduce the ability to benefit from the higher returns that can be earned in a strongly rising market.
  • Complexities

    In some cases the structure of your product may be complex and understanding how the investment performs under various market conditions is important.
  • Early termination

    Most structured products are designed to be held until maturity for the capital protection to apply. You may incur unwinding costs if you need to terminate your investment early, resulting in some loss.
  • Liquidity

    Our structured products are designed to be as flexible as possible but in some cases liquidity constraints may be enforced.
