InvesTalk – The structured products roadshow for retail investors in September 2014
The “InvesTalk” roadshow was held for the first time in the cities of Berne, Lucerne and Basel during the second half of September. This gave potential investors the opportunity to broaden their financial expertise and to discuss the investment opportunities presented by structured products with high-powered experts.
The event programme consisted of an introductory talk on structured products, a contribution from a keynote speaker on the topic of financial markets with a focus on equities, and a presentation on the implementation of equity investments using structured products. In this conjunction, industry representatives drawn from association members showed the many assembled guests how the effective deployment of structured products can create opportunities that have not yet been fully appreciated by many retail investors. In addition to dialogue with participants, the central purpose of the series of events was to disseminate knowledge and information. At the get-togethers organised after the events, guests were able to discuss questions and outstanding issues directly with the speakers. Extensive use was made of these very popular occasions. On account of the extremely positive feedback from guests, the Association is confident that the series of events will attract even greater attention in future. This dialogue will continue to be pursued – including beyond Zurich’s financial centre. Our Newsletter will keep you informed about future events. We are also looking forward to welcoming you at FINANZ’15, the first joint fair for investment funds and structured products (for further information, see below in this Newsletter).
