Vest Partners with DIF Broker to offer structured option-based investments


Broker-dealer DIF Broker is partnering with Vest Partner’s technology subsidiary, a digital solutions provider for options-centric structured products. 

Vest’s technology will power a platform allowing DIF Broker’s financial advisors to customise protective structured options strategies on behalf of its clients throughout the Iberian Peninsula and South America.

The offerings will enable DIF Broker’s clients to access a number of innovative, options-based investment strategies, including those that aim to provide some measure of downside protection. “Our main goal with the new service is to offer a uniquely useful product for our investors,” says Paulo Pinto, Chief Operating Officer at DIF Broker. “Our dedicated team of investment consultants will be on hand with the aim of offering Vest’s distinctive services in a number of regions where such strategies have previously been unavailable.”

Vest’s technology subsidiary develops technological and software solutions for brokerages and investment advisers alike, helping such firms expand their businesses by offering structured notes-like payouts to their customers, using exchange traded options to construct the payouts. Vest’s digital solutions are notable for substantially reducing the complexity of options trading while providing investors with targeted protection, enhanced returns, and a level of predictability unattainable with most other investments. 
“We’re thrilled to be partnering with DIF Broker,” says Alex Zhigarev, Chief Operating Officer at Vest’s technology subsidiary. “DIF Broker has demonstrated a keen desire to offer innovative, flexible solutions to its clients, and we believe this is an ideal way to continue to expand the availability of protective structured options strategies. We look forward to servicing more brokerage firms internationally to bring the benefit of protective structured options strategies to investors worldwide.”
