Finanz und Wirtschaft Forum “Structured Products 2019” 19 November

The second Finanz und Wirtschaft Forum on Structured Products will be held at the Gottlieb Duttweiler Institute in Rüschlikon in November. The conference will be discussing key questions relating to structured products, and will take an in-depth look at the latest investment trends. Following last year’s successful launch, we will be building on this success – the SSPA is partnering the event and will again be making a significant contribution to the content of the event.

In the difficult zero interest policy environment, investors are looking for ways to boost returns, without exposing themselves to excessive risks. It is precisely here that structured products offer a good range of investment solutions that can be flexibly structured. Those entering new investment segments for the first time will want to gather experience first, without bearing the full risk from the outset. Capital protection certificates with a maximum loss of 5%, which relate to emerging market currencies or commodities, offer a good approach.

The Forum will also address the choice between equity and credit risks: Conservative barrier products with coupons that relate to equity indices and have a large risk buffer are a suitable alternative to bonds. Another alternative are credit linked notes on reference debtors, which provide slightly higher returns. On 19 November 2019, you will be able to find out personally what to look out for when using structured products and how portfolios can be improved in the current low-interest environment.
