Why invest in structured deposits?
100% principal protected structured deposits offer several key benefits:
- Protect your initial investment (principal)
- Provide potential return
- Offer you the chance to invest in non-traditional assets
- Have no processing fee
- Provide pre-packaged to meet specific investment needs
- Spread the risk of your entire investment portfolio
- Access to a simple and fixed-term investment
What are structured deposits?
- Structured deposits are fixed-term investments that trade in assets that may otherwise be out of reach for a retail investor. Their features and terms can vary, so no two structured products are the same.
- Generally, they are pre-packaged investment products designed to meet specific needs – which often cannot be met through more traditional investments like stocks and bonds.
- The return on a structured investment is based on a complex formula. It is sometimes linked to the performance of specific investment assets, but often it just tracks a stock market index.
Things to know
- Structured deposits are sophisticated financial instruments and you should speak to your sales before investing.
- Structured deposits are not traditional deposits. They aren't covered by deposit insurance (CDIC).
- If you redeem a structured deposit before the fixed-term ends, you could get back less than you originally invested.
- When the underlying performance is as expected, you could have a potential return. However, in the worst scenario, you may not get back what you originally invested, or you may not be able to early unwind before the end of the investment term.
- You should read the prospectus and risk disclosure before making an investment decision. Past performance of an investment product is not a guarantee of future performance.
