Market snapshot

As the volume of sales of structured products in the US decreases, leveraged return products remain the most popular product, followed by bonus structures and then reverse convertibles. The UK market continues to be led by capital-at-risk annual kickouts, with simple growth products next and then capital-at-risk income notes, writes Tim Mortimer
