This book has two themes: Private Banking and investment decisions regarding Structural Financial Products. Dr. Dimitris Chorafas examines in a rigorous way whether structured financial products are advisable investments for retail and institutional investors and, if yes, which risks they entail. As our society becomes increasingly affluent, and state-supported pension schemes find it difficult to survive, a growing number of high net-worth individuals, and families, have become retail investors - looking for ways and means to optimize wealth management, and Private Banking deals with these sorts of clients. Private banking also deals with clients that are institutional investors, such as pension funds, mutual funds, and insurance companies, as well as not-for-profits, foundations and companies explicitly set up for wealth management. Both institutional and retail investors are being offered by the banks they work with structured products. Typically, these are securities that provide them with a redemption amount, with may be either with full or partial capital protection, and some type of return. The book examines structured financial products, their polyvalent nature, and the results which could be expected from them. Return on structural instruments, which are essentially derivatives, is paid in function of a specific investment strategy on selected underlying assets. This essentially means on the performance of the underlyings, obtained by asset managers, which may be banks or hedge funds, through purchase or sale of embedded options. But there are risks. Both risk and return from structured products are related to three main issues: the volatility of future value of an underlying, the uncertainty of future events, and the exposure of the product. Every type of investment is subject to market forces, and the more leveraged a portfolio is, the greater will probably be both the assumed risk and the expected rewar

Financial expert Dimitris Chorafas explains the real risks and returns of structured financial products in private banking.From the Back Cover:
This book addresses Private Banking and investment decisions, particularly investments in Structured Financial Products. Dr. Dimitris Chorafas examines in a rigorous manner whether structured financial products are advisable for retail and institutional investors and, if yes, which risks they entail.
As our society becomes increasingly affluent, a growing number of high net-worth individuals, and families, have become retail investors – looking for ways to optimise wealth management. Private Banking deals with these sorts of clients. But is this done in a way protecting investor interests?
Private banking also deals with clients that are institutional investors, such as pension funds, mutual funds, insurance companies, and not-for-profits foundations. The fact that structured financial products appeal, or at least are being marketed, to both retail investors and institutional investors justifies approaching the investment needs of both populations under one cover, in studying the advisability of using Structured Financial Products and their risks.
Dr. Dimitris Chorafas addresses these issues in a practical manner with numerous case studies and real-world examples drawn from his intensive research and personal experience.
