Structured products are complex, and usually embedded with derivatives, where value is based on underlying assets.
Some structured products are listed on the stock exchange, such as derivative warrants and callable bull/bear contracts. Others are unlisted and sold by intermediaries, like banks. These include currency-linked and equity-linked investments.
Many structured products are high risk and are not suitable for inexperienced investors.
You should read the structured product's offering document and product key facts statement before making a decision. This will give details about the investment goal, strategy, risks, fees and procedures.
