The structured products market is still in its youth, but it is no longer a child. Consequently, there are some unfortunate consequences for product providers and potential benefits for investors. Any complex financial instrument is only ever produced at a premium by banks. And that means higher fees. You don't always see these fees, but you do hear that they are embedded in the structuring. This is all well and good, and everyone needs to be paid for the work they do and the risks they take.
