Your clients’ tolerance for risk is low to moderate. They might be, for example, searching for an alternative to a bond investment that protects capital while providing a more attractive return potential than a regular risk free return.

The risks of product offering capital protection are comparatively reduced. Two aspects are important: Firstly, the product only provides capital protection as at the maturity date. Therefore, if your clients need to sell the product because they need the invested capital before its maturity, a loss is possible.

The principle underlying the optimization products is that your clients benefit from a fixed coupon with which they realize attractive returns as long as the base value changes within the expected range. In return, they reduce their potential gains if markets perform better than expected, that is to say, if the markets are very bullish. EAVEST offers a range of products with a wide range of underlying assets.
These products have ultimately the same risk as their underlying asset, even if the risk of loss is reduced through a coupon. We should underline that your gains may vanish if, against all expectations, the underlying asset value sharply declines.
