Derivative and structured products
Structured products and derivatives usually combine equities, currencies, commodities or interest rates with a more sophisticated optional component to boost performance. They allow you to maximise your portfolio’s return while keeping risks under control. Your private banker offers personalised, innovative solutions based on an open architecture approach, while our centre of expertise liaises with top banking institutions to develop solutions that meet your expectations at the most competitive prices.
Are you looking for an interesting alternative to traditional financial investments, which will allow you to take full advantage of market opportunities and increase the return of your portfolio, while keeping risk under control?
Structured products and derivatives are an excellent way to meet specific needs such as expected returns, frequency of cash flows and investment horizons etc and respect constraints such as risk level and specific legal and fiscal aspects.
Created using several financial instruments, they combine financial assets – equities, currencies, interest rates – with more sophisticated optional components.
