Structured products are a broad category of financial instruments that can be used by investors to benefit from price movements in certain underlying assets, often only with a relatively small investment. Structured products can be used to respond to an increase or decrease in an underlying asset.
Examples of popular underlying values are individual stocks, indices, commodities or currency pairs. The leverage of a structured product indicates the percentage by which the value of the product will move if the underlying moves by 1%. All structured products have a Key Information Document (KID).
