FVC launches new service for the offshore structured product market
UK-based structured product specialists FVC have announced the launch of the offshore version of their Structured Edge research service, which is free to access for financial advisers.
FVC has been providing research on UK distributed structured products for 18 years and has featured over 4,500 products in that time.
Advisers are able to evidence a proper selection process through the scores, risk metrics and probabilities of outcomes from both simulations and back-testing. These are calculated from FVC’s quantitative methodology.
The new service is being launched at the end of January 2018 specifically for the offshore market to enable advisers to compare such products using the proven methods that have been available in the UK.
Structured products are an important investment class which provide equity linked investments with the opportunity for income or growth but with strong elements of capital protection. Products are generally linked to major indices including the FTSE 100, EuroStoxx 50 or S&P 500 and provide target income of between 5% and 8% which does not require markets to rise over the investment term which typically 6 years.
Tim Mortimer, managing director of FVC said “we are excited to bring this service concept to the interesting and important offshore market with its diverse client and geographical base.”
