Project Summary:
Structured products, as described by the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA), are
securities derived from or based on a single security, a basket of securities, an index, a
commodity, a debt issuance and/or a foreign currency. They are a hybrid between two asset classes
typically issued in the form of a corporate bond or a certificate of deposit but instead of having a
pre-determined rate of interest, the return is linked to the performance of an underlying asset
class. As this definition suggests, there are multiple types of structured products. These
variations include certain products offering full protection of the principal invested while others
may offer limited or no protection of principal.

RSP Portal and enabled user to perform custom pricing based on the user's risk appetite/returns
interest.

profile and risk coverage.
