- The main topic is called a structured note, which is an alternative investment that combines a zero-coupon bond with an options package. They are positioned for investors primarily for income production
- There are two versions with different call dates. But each follows a stock index that can pay from 7-14% with a lower degree of risk than traditional stock or bond investments
- Risks involved include issuer risk involving the banks that issue these notes, market risk in case it drops more than thirty percent, liquidity risk and there is a cap on the percent of gain if the market index goes higher than that
