Successive improvement in cost transparency for structured products
Distribution fees include fees structured product issuers include in the issue price, such as compensation paid to distribution partners. The disclosure means investors know precisely what monetary incentives distributors receive for product sales, providing them with an even better understanding of the products and issuers.
In a second phase, the SSPA is planning to introduce a breakdown of the costs in close collaboration with the European umbrella organisation eusipa. European reporting standards are to be drawn up on the basis of today’s rates and experience. This will make the structured products industry one of the most transparent in the financial markets.
