This is a prepackaged investment with one or more derivatives, as well as more traditional financial instruments. Structured products are complex investments that will typically include certain assets, such as a stock, a basket of securities, currencies, or commodities, and its assets are usually tied to interest. Instead of offering the more standard payment features, like those related to the final principal or periodic coupons, payoffs from structured products are derived from the performance of at least one of the underlying assets and not the issuer’s cash flow.
Typically, a broker-dealer and its financial advisor will earn higher commissions and interest from selling structured products than more traditional, less risky investments. However, the fees can offset the benefits of this kind of complex, illiquid investment, such as the higher yield than they would likely obtain from a money market fund or a CD. Not only that, but this kind of product can be difficult to explain to most unsophisticated investors.
Unfortunately, the high risks involved haven’t stopped financial firms like JPMorgan Chase from creating auto callable notes and selling them to retail customers, including retirees. There also have been reports that brokers may have allegedly misrepresented the risk involved, allegedly causing customers to think that this kind of investment was a safer bet than it has proven to have been, especially with the crude oil market turning volatile in recent years.Contact a Securities Lawyer If You Suffered Serious Losses in JPMorgan Chase Auto Callable Contingent Interest Notes Linked To The S&P GSCI® Crude Oil Index Excess Return
