The Tempo Issuer & Counterparty Scorecards ('TICS')

For investors who want to understand more about the strength of banks behind structured products

Welcome to 'TICS': a new section of our website for investors who want to understand more about the strength of banks behind structured products:

Counterparty risk is generally considered to be the most important risk of a structured product for investors to consider.

The Tempo Issuer & Counterparty Scorecards (‘TICS’) break new ground, having been designed by Tempo to support professional advisers who need to understand more about the strength of the counterparty banks behind structured products.

We are delighted that Tempo has agreed to offer access to part of TICS for investors through Best Price.

Investors can access the 'TICS Side-by-Side View' and a selection of 'TICS Reports', which together offer a level of information that has not been readily or easily accessible by investors, before now.
