Email 1 of 4: Tempo unveils Issue 17 of its product suite

Yes, once again, we are splitting details of a product suite launch from a provider into separate emails, because the latest launch from Tempo continues to deserve special attention.

But also once again, before we tell you more about the Tempo plans, we’d like to provide some general points regarding structured products …

What Moneyfacts has to say about structured products …

’’Silencing the critics’’, by Richard Eagling, Editor of Moneyfacts

Moneyfacts, a very respected publication, has included two very good articles about structured products in its November magazine and online, which are well worth a read.

The editor, Richard Eagling’s article, ‘Silencing the critics’, highlights that structured products are continuing to deliver strong returns, which prove the sceptics wrong … something that we have long  known and been at the forefront of ensuring our clients know.

‘’SPs: Need; Evidence; and USPs’’, by Chris Taylor, Global Head of Tempo

In addition, Moneyfacts also published two articles written by Chris Taylor, global head of Tempo.

Chris’s first article explains the need for professional advisers and investors to consider structured products, the evidence that they work, and the USPs that they present for investors, as part of diversified and balanced portfolios.

Chris’s second article explains the importance of advisers and investors understanding the fundamental USP of structured products, which is that they offer investors the opportunity to ‘invest by contract’, accessing ‘alpha by contract’, in contrast to actively managed or passive mutual funds and ETFs.

We have appended below the links of both Richard Eagling’s and Chris Taylor’s articles.

Recognising the USPs of structured products: particularly in the current environment …

The USPs of structured products (including their ability to generate positive returns without requiring stock markets to rise, with defined levels of protection if stock markets fall, all based on legally binding contracts) are significant and important, particularly at this time.

And the comprehensive and granular facts about UK retail structured products’ performance their virtues and merits, and the efficacy of including them in diversified and balanced portfolios.

The Tempo plans: Issue 17 continues to offer exceptional terms …

Issue Tranche 17 of Tempo’s product suite continues to offer exceptional terms, across each of its 3 plans and 6 options.

Tempo’s focus is on ‘deliberately defensive’ products, which means that ALL of its plans and options are designed to increase the likelihood of positive returns being generated, and to decrease the likelihood of capital losses being experienced.

Sounds eminently sensible to us … especially at this time …. hopefully to you too!

Details for each of the Tempo plans will follow … 

Three separate emails will follow, providing details for each of the Tempo plans.

As always, please see the full plan literature for full details of these plans and the features, terms and conditions, including the risks.

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.

Tempo’s products can only be accessed with advice.

Demand for Tempo’s plans has been very high recently, resulting in some of our clients missing out on the initial terms on offer, despite moving quickly!

If you are interested to invest in any of the Tempo plans in Issue 17 we would certainly suggest early contact, in order to try to ensure availability and access.

Please contact us to discuss any aspect of these products.

Best Regards.

Richard and the Best Price FS Team
