Structured Investment returns
In this note we look at the historic performance of FTSE Linked Autocalls and compare this to the performance of equities and bonds. To be able to assess the returns that structured products have offered in the past we have worked with Investment Product Research (IPR) to create a representative index. The IPR FTSE Linked Autocall Index can be used to show the returns that this popular type of product has offered in the past. The index demonstrates the attractive historic risk / return profile of structured products. In conclusion, we propose that structured products offer an attractive alternative to both equities and bonds.
