Are Structured Products right for you?

In a world of low interest rates and relatively high inflation it is important that you earn a return that protects the real value of your capital.  Structured products offer one such way of achieving this objective. 

There are a number of different ways to access stock markets from direct investments in shares, mutual funds, exchange tracking funds and structured products.  Structured products are investments which can be manufactured to offer income, capital growth, or a combination of both.  The returns are usually based on the performance of the underlying investments and are most often linked to a stock market index such as the FTSE 100.

Structured products can benefit investors who do not want or need to be exposed to the full ravages of the stock market. They can be designed to alter the traditional risk and return attributes of a stock market investment to benefit an investors own requirements.  These investments can be constructed to provide full or partial capital protection and there are certain types of structured notes which can provide fixed levels of capital or income return for investors who are willing to accept some level of investment risk.
