Launch of the SSPA Lab in collaboration with the University of Zurich – playful simulation of structured products

The SSPA is pleased to announce the launch of the SSPA Lab, an online gaming format for structured products that has been developed in collaboration with the University of Zurich. With its interactive approach, the free Lab is a simple and playful introduction to the topic of structured products. In a matter of seconds, the most common products can be created and tested in various bullish and bearish scenarios.

Zurich – 16 July 2021. The SSPA Lab simulates market scenarios with real-time data and real events such as the financial crisis, the Trump election and the COVID-19 crisis. It allows users to simulate the performance of structured products with just a few decisions. In addition, interested parties can determine and test suitable products with a few details on their own investment-specific preferences.

The SSPA Lab helps existing and potential investors to expand their understanding of structured products in a playful way and to heighten their risk awareness. The SSPA has developed this unique tool in collaboration with the Institute of Banking and Finance at the University of Zurich.

Commenting on the SSPA Lab, SSPA Chairman Markus Pfister said: “We are delighted to bring structured products closer to investors through the SSPA Lab. The gaming approach invites experimentation and trial and error with the aim of helping more investors make balanced and informed decisions about their investments in structured products.”
