Checklist Before Purchase


Before buying a structured product you should check the following:

  • Who is the issuer of the placement?
  • Is the product capital protected? To what extent?
  • What are the fees (arranger fees and commission)?
  • What conditions are attached to the return?
  • How is the return calculated?
  • Look at the draft terms (participation rates, coupons, barriers, etc.).
  • Will the product be listed on an established marketplace that you have access to?
  • Decide how much you’re willing to invest in the product based on your particular situation.
  • Spread the risk by purchasing products with different maturities and returns linked to different markets.

Remember to always read the information regarding the risks in the base prospectus and final terms and conditions before investing.
