In this episode Ian Lowes, the founder of Structured Products Review, speaks about why the pre-packaged investment strategy is so misunderstood, and how so many advisers and clients often miss-out on great returns.

We also discuss the collapse of Lehman Brothers, Investec leaving the market, and the technical detail explaining the opportunity within the FTSE Auto Call.

Structured Products have, in the past, garnered negative press. The most recent, and perhaps most notable, example of this is during the 2008 crash. As Ian explains in this episode, investors in Lehman Brothers backed Structured Products were left unaware of how they would get their money back, making a big splash in the press.

For some advisers, another mark against Structured Products happened when Investec left the market earlier this year. However as Ian explains, this has left space for other banks to move into place, offering investors better credit from the likes of HSBC and Barclays.
