Julius Baer launches capital protected products in response to “volatile and difficult times”

Declining political and economic stability has led to Bank Julius Baer launching a number of capital protected products, including investments that offer private investors exposure to rising gold prices, said the Swiss banking group.

Last month the bank launched ‘Baer Pro Units on Gold’, a one-year note that gives investors 100% of the upside of a gold index plus protection on 94% of their capital – so any loss is restricted to a maximum of 6%. Capital protected structures with equity, fixed income and foreign exchange underlyings were also launched. Julius Baer said the products are being sold exclusively to its private banking clients. The bank gave no indication of the value of products that have been sold.
