Deconstructing structured products for wealth managers


More than a decade after the financial crisis revealed the hidden risks in mortgage-backed securities, many private investors remain wary of structured products. But digital technology is bringing more transparency and accessibility to the market for these complex investments, says Stan Perromat, co-founder of Privatam, a six-year-old fintech with a Swiss subsidiary. The company provides a portal where wealth managers can compare prices across banks and build customized products for their clients. Structured products are powerful tools for managing risk and they aren’t all that complicated, Perromat says.
