Barclays Capital and Barclays Stockbrokers launch new listed structured product range Autumn 2006.
Autumn 2006 saw Barclays Capital and Barclays Stockbrokers launch a new range of listed structured products known as Investment Notes.
Suitable for individual investors, Investment Notes - like all listed structured products - trade like shares, are simple and efficient and the price is linked to the performance of underlying investment instruments such as indices, currencies, commodities or other asset classes.
- What are Investment Notes?
Investment Notes are an innovative new structured product developed by Barclays Capital and made available to you through Barclays Stockbrokers. They offer the investment appeal of Structured Products with the liquidity of normal equities.
They provide an alternative to sharedealing that can enhance and complement your portfolio, and even provide you access to traditionally institutional markets like commodities, currencies and property, all with an element of capital protection if held to maturity. And by offering Investment Notes via Barclays Stockbrokers they are available at a lower cost than traditional structured products.
You can expect to see new Investment Notes on a regular basis, created in response to changing market conditions.
- How do Investment Notes work?
Investment Notes provide investors with returns linked to popular underlying investments and indices with an element of capital protection if held to maturity.
As a London Stock Exchange listed product, they offer the flexibility and transparency of stocks and can be easily traded on a daily basis.
- Why trade Investment Notes?
The reasons for trading Investment Notes will vary depending on the type of investor and each note may not be right for everyone. Investment Notes will help investors pursue a range of objectives, including:
- Diversification across asset classes
- Generating income/returns
- Offering levels of Capital Protection
- Access to markets without direct exposure
- Accessing investments not typically available to individual investors
