Vontobel, Leonteq, Credit Suisse, or ZKB: Platforms for structured products have mushroomed in recent years. Vontobel in particular has driven the digitalization of the financial world in recent years with its deritrade issuing platform. Peter Camenzind sums it up:
“The digitalization trend is unbroken for structured products. While overall just over half of products are now traded via deritrade, the digitalization rate in the banking client segment in Switzerland has increased to more than 85% this year — and the trend is still growing.”
Not even the coronavirus crisis could stop the growth of the platform business. On the contrary: Investors widely seized the opportunity to optimize their returns with structured products. Last March, for example, set a monthly record of CHF 52 billion, according to the Swiss Structured Products Association (SSPA). Due to the extremely volatile market, it was easy to get high coupon payments in the “coronavirus” spring.
At the same time, inquiries about digital structured platforms such as deritrade increased. These platforms are used in particular for simulating and issuing requested products. Investors have almost unlimited options at their disposal. For return-optimization products in particular, algorithms are used to achieve the best possible risk/return ratio. This allows the investor to filter out the best combination of various underlyings for the construction of their desired product.
