What are complex products?
Updated over a week ago

Complex products are financial instruments that are designed to provide investors with exposure to a specific asset or market. These products often have complex structures and strategies, making them more challenging to understand compared to traditional investments.

Investment vehicles that are often considered to be complex products are CFDs, Factor Certificates/Daily Leverage Certificates (DLCs), interval funds, options, and some ETPs.

Benefits of Complex Products

One of the main reasons investors are drawn to complex products is their potential for high returns. These products often offer higher returns compared to traditional investments, making them an attractive option for those looking to potentially increase their profits in exchange for a relatively higher risk.

Additionally, investing in complex products can provide diversification by spreading investments across different assets and sectors. This can help mitigate risk and protect against market volatility.

Risks associated with Complex Products

While complex products can offer higher potential returns, they also come with greater risks. It is essential to carefully assess these risks before making any investment decisions.

As with any investment, it is always recommended to consult with a financial advisor to determine if a complex product is suitable for your investment goals and risk tolerance.

Investing in securities or other financial instruments always involves the potential of losing your money. FlexInvest recommends considering your investment objectives and risks before investing. For more information, please read our Risk Disclosures Statement and our Terms & Conditions.
