Dale Burke, Product Manager, Numerix, and Biju Kulathakal, CEO of Halo Investing


If the market environment of the past two decades has shown us anything, it’s that big market moves are surprisingly frequent, certainly more frequent than models would predict. The COVID-19 pandemic was yet another Black Swan event no one saw coming. Despite the large market moves, and with persistently low interest rate environments globally, Structured Notes remain very popular. Offering access to unique payoffs, a range of risk profiles, and attractive yields, the products are appealing to both investors and issuers.

But is COVID-19 more than just a Black Swan, and actually a catalyst of change driving the evolution of the Structured Note market? Is it spurring shifts in demand and distribution methods? Have the lessons learned over the past several months prepared issuers to actively monitor risk and dynamically hedge better than ever before?

Join us for a panel discussion featuring Dale Burke, Product Manager, Numerix and Biju Kulathakal, CEO of Halo Investing as they explore how market participants are adapting to change in the Structured Notes market. Brad Bailey, Research Director for Capital Markets at Celent moderated the 30-minute discussion and Q&A session that covers structuring/issuance of notes, through to hedging, distribution and lifecycle management.

Topics covered include:

  • Today’s Structured Notes market: Addressing pain points and overcoming challenges
  • The new role of speed and real time intelligence
  • How issuers and investors can capitalize on market changes
  • The rise of the platform and benefits to structured market participants
  • Key areas of improvement: technology, data and analytics
