Structured products have been part of the UK financial landscape since the1990’s, with users ranging from large institutions to individual retail investors. Over time, the market has evolved, shaped by evolving investor needs, different market cycles and changes to regulation. Today, the UK structured product industry is responsible for issuing significant volume each year and many of the global banks are active in the UK market.
The establishment of the UK Structured Products Association (‘UKSPA’) in 2009 gave those firms the opportunity to work together for the first time, to help promote the industry, engage with regulators and provide a useful source of information to the wider investment community.
Over the past few years in particular, UKSPA has gained significant momentum to become an influential player in the structured products industry. It has attracted many new members, from independent retail facing firms to global investment banks, demonstrating the importance of UKSPA and its reputation for delivering benefit across all its members.
