Structured products – Who for?

Given the level of protection and also predictability of the journey structured products have been used for decades by pension/wrap providers to lock in a very high probability of a return that is linked to equity markets but is not exposed to the same short term downside risk of direct equities. Given this information in recent years private investors are cutting out the middle man and now given the changes to pensions freedom a lot of individuals act as their own pension fund and are increasingly utilising structured investments whether that be in the form of an interest paying bank account or a structured product.

SIPP – Below is a list of the Sipp providers in which Dura Capital’s products can be held. If you would like to utilise the tax benefits of a SIPP alongside the investments benefits of a structure product then Best Price FS will be more than happy to provide a SIPP application form.


DON’T FORGET THE RISKS

https://www.bestpricefs.co.uk/dura-capital-structured-products/#risks

As with all forms of investment there are risks involved. These plans do not guarantee to repay the money invested. The potential returns of the plans and repaying the money invested are linked to the level of the stock market and also depend on the financial stability of the Issuer and Counterparty Bank.

The promotion of the plans does not constitute ‘advice’ to invest. Advice is always specific to an individual investor’s circumstances and needs, following the process of ‘know your customer’, with the aim of ensuring that any product is suitable for an investor.

Warmest Regards.
