FVC has provided research on UK distributed structured products for 18 years and has featured more than 4,500 products during that time.
The company says, using its service, that advisers are able to evidence a proper selection process through the scores, risk metrics and probabilities of outcomes from both simulations and back testing.
As of January 2018, the service has been expanded to the offshore market.
Best practice and full transparency
Tim Mortimer, managing director of FVC, said: “We are excited to bring this service concept to the interesting and important offshore market with its diverse client and geographical base.”
He said that structured products are popular in the offshore market because of capital protection mechanisms and the ability to generate yield in flat or modest markets.
This service allows advisers to bring the benefits of this investment class to their clients by selecting the most appropriate products for them.
It is being launched with the participation of one of the longest standing and most successful distributors of structured products, IDAD.
Other distributors are also expected to join the site very soon.
Mortimer added: “We are delighted that we were able to launch the service with one of the market’s most important distributors and I welcome their commitment to best practice and full transparency for advisers and the clients they serve.”
