The structured product market is one of the most dynamic and complex of all, offering a multitude of benefits to investors. But increased regulation, intense competition and heightened volatility have become the new normal in financial markets, creating new challenges for issuers to hedge exposures that can quickly become problematic if left unchecked.

Most recently, global markets have experienced a period of extreme volatility in response to acute concerns over the economic impact of Covid-19. What does this mean for traders, issuers, risk managers and investors as the structured products market reshapes to fit the changing market environment?

Key topics discussed:

  • How the structured products market is evolving
  • What the recent turmoil means for structured products hedging and new issuance
  • How traders and risk managers can apply lessons from past periods of market stress and adapt to new ways of working
  • Technology’s role in the structured products market.
