    • Structured products consist of a traditional investment such as shares or fixed-interest investments and a derivative financial instrument. From a legal point of view, structured products represent obligations or debt claims against the issuer. The creditworthiness of the issuer or of a guarantor of the structured product is therefore of vital importance for the investor.

    • Structured products are suitable for experienced investors who want to invest on rising, falling or sideways-trending markets on a product-by-product basis. When selecting products, investors should consider all risks and ideally evaluate them in the context of the overall portfolio rather than just the individual product.

    • To get an overview of how structured products work, PostFinance has compiled a brochure with all important information, which explains the categories on offer (capital protection, participation and yield enhancement) in detail.

    • Structured products involve the following risks, which can result in price fluctuations and, in extreme cases, even in total losses:

      • Issuer risk: issuer risk includes unfavourable developments of the structured product resulting from the creditworthiness of the issuer.
      • Market risk: market risk is the risk of possible losses due to unfavourable developments of the structured product’s underlying asset.
      • Currency risk: currency risks include unfavourable developments in the repayment value and the secondary market price for structured products, caused by exchange rate fluctuations.
      • Liquidity risk: liquidity risk arises if the structured product is not traded frequently during its term and cannot be sold at a appropriate price.
