UKSPA Guide to Risk Ratings for Financial Advisers
UKSPA Risk Ratings will no longer be in use from January 2018.
The UKSPA Risk Ratings are designed to help you compare different structured products available to UK investors. These ratings reflect both the market risk and the credit risk of a product, giving you the tolls you need to match products more closely to your clients' needs. This guide explains in detail how the UKSPA Risk Ratings are calculated, includes some illustrating of how they work in practice and provides answers for some frequently asked questions. Please note that this guide is intended for use by financial advisers only.
