What are Investment Notes or Structured Products ?
Investment Notes or Structured Products are a group of financial instruments with varying terms, payouts and risk profiles based on a range of underlying assets, that are listed on the London Stock Exchange and are tradable on a daily basis (online and over the telephone).
They are very similar to traditional structured products but the main difference, or new feature, is that they’re listed and tradable on the London Stock Exchange. This means they’re more accessible than traditional structured products.
They have traditionally been popular with Independent Financial Advisors and Institutional Investors. Barclays Stockbrokers and Barclays Capital are working together to bring these investment opportunities to self directed retail investors on an execution only basis – no advice is provided.
