OUR OFFERING

We offer the following fixed income securities, structured notes and interest rate derivatives, with a primary focus on emerging markets:

  • Government bonds: Government bonds offer relatively low risk compared to equities, as interest will be repaid provided the relevant governments do not default on their bonds.
  • Corporate bonds: These have higher growth potential than government bonds, and are less vulnerable to inflation and interest rate increases.
  • Structured notes: These provide interest rate, foreign exchange, credit and equity enhanced structures.
  • Vanilla and structured interest rate swaps: These customised contracts are traded in the market between private parties.
  • Cross-currency interest rate swaps: Navigate global markets through currency and interest rate swaps that bring together two parties with advantages in different markets.
  • Options: Including caps, floors, collars, swaps and exotics, options allow you to take advantage of market volatility.
  • Structured derivatives: These products help to mitigate interest rate, currency, credit, equity and/or commodities risks.
