How does the Association protect investors?
The Association seeks an optimal balance between protective regulation and investor responsibility. Participating in the drafting process and optimizing knowledge transfer and structured product information are given equal priority. The aim is a structured product marketplace of equal benefit to investors, issuers and the authorities. Investor autonomy is to be preserved at all times. What makes structured products complex are protections against investor losses. It would be wrong to equate greater complexity with greater risk of loss.
