A safety net for uncertain markets

Investec’s Structured Products are designed to give you a defined outcome over your investment period. While there are no absolutes in investing, making smart choices can remove some of the uncertainty. Tailor your returns for capital growth, income, or both. 

Access different markets, currencies and themes

Our Structured Products give choice and flexibility. Access international markets without having to choose stocks yourself and invest according to a market theme. Some are designed to make returns even in flat markets, while others use leverage with the goal of enhancing returns.

A compelling diversification tool

Structured Products fall into the category known as ‘alternative investments’. As part of a proper asset allocation plan, they can play a useful part in diversifying your investment portfolio.
