Knowledge
That investors or their advisors need a degree of basic knowledge to be successful, applies as much to structured products as it does to any other form of investment. There is enough specialized literature available to convey basic structured product knowledge. Two new SSPA publications, one a brief introduction to the world of structured products,
 
the other a comprehensive reference work, facilitate this endeavour.
Both, new and advanced investors will find below additional information for literature regarding structured products as well as seminars held on the subject in Switzerland.
