Structured products, including market-linked products or principle protection notes, yield optimization notes, absolute return notes, are hybrid investments. They combine a traditional security that is paid at maturity, such as a bond, with a periodic payment based on the performance of an underlying asset, such as a stock or bond index.
Some structured products can present a high-level of risk to investors. If your stockbroker or brokerage firm failed to inform you of the risks involved in an investment in a structured product and you suffered a financial loss, you may be able to recover your losses.
