About the webinar:

The structured product market is one of the most dynamic and complex of all, offering a multitude of benefits to investors. But increased regulation, intense competition and heightened volatility have become the new norm in financial markets, creating new challenges for issuers to hedge exposures that can quickly become problematic if left unchecked.

Most recently, global markets have experienced a period of extreme volatility in response to acute concerns over the economic impact of Covid-19. What does this mean for traders, issuers, risk managers and investors as the structured products market reshapes to fit the changing market environment?
