Benefits

Structured deposits offer several key benefits:

  • Invest in underlying financial instruments, not usually accessible to a retail investor
  • Pre-packaged to meet specific investment needs
  • Could help spread the risk of your entire investment portfolio
  • The return on a Structured Deposit is variable and depends on the performance of an underlying financial asset, product or benchmark

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 deposits are the same.

Generally, they are pre-packaged investment products designed to meet specific needs – which often can't be met through more traditional investments like stocks and bonds.

The return on a structured deposit is based on a complex formula. The potential return depends on the performance of the underlying financial instruments, such a stock market indexes, equities, interest rates, foreign exchange rates or any combination of these.

There's a structured deposit available for every type of investor. Whether you have a low appetite for risk or are bit more adventurous in your outlook, you can diversify your investment portfolio with a structured deposit.

Things to consider

  • Structured deposits carry a low to medium level of risk, as they use derivatives to hedge risks and improve performance
  • Structured deposits are generally fixed-term investments. You should be able to commit to them  for a medium-to long-term period. They may not be suitable if you need to cash in early
  • If a structured deposit is terminated prior to its maturity (early unwind), investors may get back less than their initial investment
  • Structured deposit returns 100% of principal back to investors only if it is held until maturity
  • Familiarise yourself with the underlying investment assets and how the structured deposit's returns are calculated. This way, you'll understand the factors that may affect your return
