Structured financial products are defined in a variety of ways. Instruments that are constructed following a definition include derivatives and conventional financial products and have distinct risk and return characteristics. According to a different definition, structured goods are investment products whose returns fluctuate dependent on one or more assets. Another description of structured products is that they are investment strategies based on derivatives, such as stocks, stock portfolios, indexes, and commodities. All of these definitions point to the two primary characteristics of structured products: their existence as financial assets that generate cash flow. As financial tools that maximize returns, preserve capital, are participatory, and leveraged, they may be divided into four classes.

This course has been designed to explain all structured financial product strategies with examples of how they can be applied to a variety of underlying assets, including equities and indexes. By using numerous current sample applications and the fundamental theoretical pricing that underpins the strategies, structured products will be taught in all of their features. The program will provide participants with a wealth of information, including fundamental ideas and contemporary investing methods, as well as a variety of local and foreign examples, to dominate these transactions and adjacent markets. By the end of the program, participants will be able to choose products based on their risk preferences, be aware of the benefits and drawbacks, and develop more intelligent investing plans.
