Big Year, Even Bigger Future!
The biggest year of US retail sales in a decade – driven by equity and rate-linked demand, and technology that is transforming investor engagement with structured products. This is the exciting back story that our 12th Americas Structured Note Showcase and Awards will celebrate.
The awards we are proud to announce today recognise the landmark deals, market leaders and digital entrepreneurs that headlined these stunning advances – and will be the stars of our poolside lunch and showcase on April 12th at the Four Seasons, Miami.
Future market shakers!
Structuring and distribution platforms have gathered new momentum and impact in the last year. Our Rising Star, Dealer of the Year and Market Future award winners point to broad-based transformation of the market’s ability to connect with advisors and investors. Building on its bold branding initiative for Market-Linked Securities, Incapital stands out for the growth and breadth of its multi-channel wholesaling effort – up 20% in 2017 and now accounting for 40% of the bank market.
Meanwhile, Halo Investing and Goldman Sachs’ SIMON represent two versions of the increasingly powerful platform approach to the market.
New issuer and dealer entrants are transforming the US market landscape as the universe of counterparties broadens. Our Rising Star awards highlight these notable new players.
Similarly, the Asian Development Bank‘s presence among our Deals of the Year signals the growing appetite of US investors for supranational credits.
Top of the pops!
Our Deals of the Year, Investor Solutions and Power Performer awards reflect major developments across the region! Appetite for structured exposure to international indices, the increasing traction of thematic stock structures, the yield enhancement offered by worst-of structures and the revivals in CMS plays and commodity-linkers are all reflected – most in Canada as well as the US.
Moreover, both in Latin America and the US they also point to growing activity in fund-linked structures.
