Structured Edge, the FVC structured product research service was created in 1999 to provide independent and authoritative analysis of UK retail structured products for financial advisers. It has been established as the market standard for many years.
Structured products are an important investment solution providing risk control and defined return solutions. However the range of product types means that understanding the market is critical to enabling advisers doing business in a compliant fashion and serving their clients' needs to the highest standards.
Central to the FVC research service is an individual report for each product which examines value-for-money, market and credit risk, potential returns and probabilities of different outcomes. Each product is analysed using the same objective basis and methodologies and is used by many thousands of advisers.
5000 products have been analysed since the service began and it is very widely used by UK financial advisers to help them with their structured product comparison, selection and compliance processes.
In the time since the service was created there have been significant changes in the investment world as well as increased regulatory requirements. FVC has continually made improvements to its service to keep it at the forefront of structured products analysis in a way that best serves our financial adviser users. We also provide extensive filtering and search facilities and educational resources.
In 2018 we added our Offshore market service to bring the same benefits that the UK market has enjoyed for many years.
