Structured product in life insurance: a response to volatility

There are days with, and days without. In the stock markets, the beginning of the year 2022 was rather marked by “free” days, and especially by a significant volatility, which does not facilitate the activity of investors seeking to capture long-term stock returns. However, there is still room for high-yield opportunistic investments. That’s the whole point of our next structured product.

Structured product assets in a live market

Assiduous readers of Marc Fiorentino’s newsletter (and our daily stock market newsletter) were able to read the stock market performance for the first quarter. Unsurprisingly, the main clues ended in the first 3 months of the year in the red. On the other hand, this counter-performance is explained by geopolitical tensions, exacerbated by the Ukrainian conflict, the soaring inflation in Europe and the United States, particularly affecting commodities, or the tightening of Western monetary policies, and especially that of the US Federal Reserve.

Balance of races between January 1 and March 31, 2022:

  • About 5% off the Dow Jones and S&P.
  • 10% average on the Nasdaq.
  • 7% on the CAC 40.
  • 9% on the Eurostoxx 50.

Under these conditions, using a stock market investment through a structured product is all the more relevant. Actually, the yield of a structured product, in particular in a traditional autocall formula (with reboursement by anticipation), is not directly dependent on volatilité bourse. Thus, even for a period of several months, the final yield of the product is not necessarily misaligned: it is the performance at maturity (after 6 to 12 years depending on the maximum duration, or less in case of early repayment) that will be the justice of the peace.

In addition, a structured product allows the investor to benefit from a more controlled return on risk / risk. The performance is capped (10% per year for example) compared to a classic stock purchase, but it is even more protected : according to the formulas, it is even possible to make a profit, even if the underlying stock market (most often an index) ends up falling from its initial level. Plush, in most structured products provided with capital protection mechanisms, in order to avoid a reserve under the reservation that la baisse du sous-jacent does not exceed a given threshold. (-50% for example). It should also be noted that all performance and capital protection settings are known in advance to the investor.
