The European Structured Investment Products Association (EUSIPA) has published a new version of its derivative map, its educational and transparency tool for investors and issuers of listed structured products in Europe.
The Brussels-based trade association says that the EUSIPA derivate map characterises products according to their pay-off characteristics, and outlines what types of instruments are available in particular jurisdictions. It demonstrates the pay-off features of key product categories in graphical form, by showing profit and loss movement over time against the movement of the underlying market that the derivative references. Market participants can quickly and easily understand product nomenclature and associated pay-off functions of the thousands of structured noted listed on various European exchanges.
EUSIPA adds that enhancements provided by the new version of the map includes splitting out constant leverage certificates into a distinct product category and updates to the country overview page to reflect additional products now being sold in national markets.
