Buy This Structured Product .......... I Don't Want It

It looks like structured products are not for everyone, even those that advise investors on structured products. As reported by Investment News, a recent survey at the Structured Products Association convention in New York (who knew they had a convention?) showed that 40% of over 200 industry representatives at the convention do not invest in derivatives-based products. Maybe they know something we don't. Or possibly, just the opposite. Like others, maybe they have no idea how some derivative-based structured operate, or what the risk are. Of course, they do know one thing - they generate huge fees.
