Structured products are sold to a wide range of retail, high net worth and institutional investors, with over GBP15bn of structured investments sold in the UK in 2009. Based on a non-specialist graduate lecture course given at University College London (UCL), this book provides an invaluable introduction to the fast growing world of derivative investments and the technology used in their design, pricing and structuring. The book gives a comprehensive overview of structuring and trading products based on the author's extensive international experience in structuring investment products across a range of underlying asset classes, including equities, interest rates, credit and hybrids. The product coverage ranges from equity investments such as reverse convertibles and basket correlation products, to credit products such as first-to-default notes and the notorious "CDO2".Written in a simple and accessible manner, this book will be of interest to students, bankers, investors and other finance professionals.
