US Wrap: Out comes Barclays again, with plethora of reverse convertibles

Barclays Bank's set of product offerings bloomed as the issuance week in the US as the week drew to a close. The UK bank produced a sequence of reverse convertibles that concentrated mainly on energy stocks, although with many other sectors represented: computing, metals and even financials. Eksportfinans rolled out an accelerated growth product based on the iShares MSCI EAFE Index Fund, while Royal Bank of Canada also based a growth product on three indexes.

JP Morgan offered a couple of reverse convertibles, and Goldman Sachs turned a little more exotic, offering a straddle product based on the S&P 500.
