What are Structured Notes?


Structured NotesStructured products / notes are generally a type of fixed-term investment where the amount you earn depends on the performance of a specific market (such as the FTSE 100) or specific assets (such as shares in individual companies).

There are two main types of structured product:

  • structured deposit
  • structured investment

Some structured investments offer a degree of capital protection, while others do not. The income or growth is usually not guaranteed and you may get no return on your investment. Even where there is capital protection, the deduction of fees and charges could mean you could get less than you put in.

Structured deposits and structured investment products with some capital protection are often purchased by customers looking for alternatives to savings accounts and other deposit-based products.

However, these products often have complicated features that can make it difficult to understand the return you are likely get, including the risk of getting no return on your investment.

It is important that you take the time to understand and assess the product you’re thinking of buying before investing.

Complex products do not necessarily offer better returns than simpler ones, such as fixed-term deposits.
