At the end of this course, you will have a good understanding of structured products, having analysed:

  • What they consist of and their main component parts.
  • Their development and peculiarities within the overall framework of issues offered (EMTNs, funds, certificates/warrants…) as well as the impact of the Lamfalussy plan on public issues. In what way they are of interest to both issuers and investors.
  • Their own particular terminology (protected capital and capital at risk, guaranteed and non-guaranteed coupon, callable structured product, launch/payment date and maturity date, directional structured products, promise structured products, mixed structured products).
  • The associated risks and risk classes to which they are likely to belong depending on their level of protection (secure structured products, dynamic structured products, speculative structured products).
  • The circumstances of their launch as well as the parties involved (technical committee, risk committee, commercial committee) and events characterising their life cycle.
  • The underlying assets on which it is possible to establish them and how to use them effectively in managing a portfolio.
