On October 20 and 21, 2010, the Structured Products Fair will provide an information platform for investors in Zurich’s Kongresshaus for the fourth time. The event, staged by Scoach Switzerland Ltd and the Swiss Structured Products Association (SSPA), will see some 30 exhibitors – including the market’s major players – answering a range of visitor questions on products, strategies, and investment themes. In addition, the fair will provide a multi-faceted supporting program with a number of speakers and roundtables focusing on the topic of «structured investing».

Market participants in the world of structured products continue to work unrelentingly to improve transparency. The Structured Products Fair offers an ideal platform in this respect: The idea of creating transparency and conveying knowledge will be a key aspect of the multi-faceted and informative supporting program this year too.

The former Chairman of the German Bundesbank will explore the question of whether the euro is currently experiencing a crisis.

The second day of the fair will see Theo Waigel, former German Finance Minister, give a talk on sustainable financial policy in times of volatile markets.
