Structured Products 

Structured products are complex investments that combine a bond and a derivative. Investors’ returns are dependent on the performance of the derivative component. These components might include forwards, options, and swaps. 

FINRA Rule 2111 – Unsuitable Investments 

FINRA Rule 2111 defines suitable investments as securities that fit an investor’s profile. Investor profiles have information on the investor’s age, risk tolerance, tax status, investing experience, and financial goals. Investments that do not take these factors into account may be unsuitable. Structured products are often unsuitable because of the risky nature of the underlying investments.
