Have you heard about structured notes, and what questions do you have about them?

Structured notes are issued by a bank to perform in either the risk management growth or income categories. A bank looks at elements such as interest rates, volatility in the market, and some indices before issuing structured notes.  

In this episode of the Secure Your Retirement podcast, we talk about structured notes, what they are, how they work, and their purpose over a glass of cabernet sauvignon wine. Listen in to learn about the coupon and principal barriers and how we work to minimize the risk.

In this episode, find out:

  • How structured notes are built to give us risk management growth or income.
  • How the bank issues structured notes and the risk attached to the bank you choose.
  • How we build structured products to minimize the risk occurring to less than 10%.

  • Factors to consider before buying or selling structured notes to avoid losing money.
  • What it means for the structured notes to be “called” and how we work around that.
