Structured notes provide the possibility of higher returns while also balancing risk.

A structured note allows you to take exposure to an underlying asset or market of your choice, in accordance with your investment objectives and risk tolerance.

Some structured notes fully repay your initial investment at the end of their term while with others you put your capital at risk, for potentially higher returns.

Features and benefits
  • Potentially higher returns

    Potentially higher returns than structured deposits or cash in a savings account.
  • Risk levels to match your investment goals

    As a market leader in structured products, our expertise is in designing the right structured note for your risk profile.
  • Fixed investment horizon

    Most structured products have a fixed term – typically three to six years – so you know when their investment will mature. Some feature early ‘kick-out’ options, which offer investors an opportunity for an early maturity dependent on the performance of the underlying asset on set points.
  • Portfolio diversification

    Structured products can also help diversify your portfolio by investing in assets that are otherwise difficult to access.
  • Product innovation and competitive terms

    We aim to offer you innovative product designs and competitive terms. Our product specialists work with leading investment banks including the Investment Banking division of Barclays.

Risks

What are the risks?

  • If you need to sell the note before its term ends, you may get back less than you invested. You should only invest in structured notes with money that you won’t need during the term of the note.
  • If the issuer of your structured product is unable to meet its financial obligations then you may not receive back your original investment or the expected return. The issuer’s failure to pay will not of itself give rise to any claim for compensation from a state scheme such as the Financial Services Compensation Scheme in the UK.
  • If the specified conditions for the return are not met, then you could get no return on your initial investment – or a lower return than a savings account would have paid.
  • Different products have different levels of risk.
  • In some instances, if the value of the investment link drops, you may get back less than you originally invested at the end of the term.
  • You could lose all of your initial capital when investing in certain structured notes even if it is held until the end of its term.
