UK structured product providers form association


The UK’s retail structured product providers have united to create the UK Structured Products Association.

The association’s key objective is to inform and educate the investment community.

It will achieve this by offering independent commentary on the broad range of issues involving structured products and the role of structured products in an appropriately diversified investment portfolio.

The UK structured products market has experienced significant growth over the last five years with more than GBP42bn in assets under management.

The creation of the association is a unified response from the members who believe that while structured products form an increasingly integral part of financial planning for investors, they are sometimes misunderstood and misrepresented.

The role of the association is not to promote individual firms, products or structured products professionals, but to demonstrate the value of structured products as investments.

The launch membership includes Citi, Credit Suisse, Legal & General, Morgan Stanley, Prudential, Royal Bank of Scotland, Santander and Skandia.

The association is also creating a committee for independent plan managers and distributors to advise on matters concerning these specific parts of the structured products industry. The committee will include Gilliat Financial Solutions, Jubilee Financial Products, Meteor Asset Management and Walker Crips Structured Investments.

The UK Structured Products Association will be working closely with other organisations, such as the Association of Independent Financial Advisers and the European Structured Investment Product Association.
