EUSIPA is the first and only European organisation created to promote the interests of the structured retail investment products market. The aim of our umbrella association is to coordinate transparency initiatives at the European level and to support uniform market standards. Through us market participants can engage in direct discussions with the decision-makers at European level.
Structured Products become increasingly popular. These products offer, especially as certificate in a note-based format, many opportunities to the retail investor. Firstly, they open regional markets and asset classes that are difficult or impossible to access directly. Secondly, they offer returns also in markets moving sidewards or falling. Thirdly, they are highly liquid, meaning that they can be bought and sold within any time of the day.
To make national markets grow together to a cross-border level playing-field our members see the necessity of retaining attractive and fair framework conditions in Europe. Our members contribute for their part by adhering to a set of principles drawn up as self-regulatory framework for issuers, by promoting initiatives for uniform product classification such as the EUSIPA map and by enhancing product and market transparency on an overall basis.
EUSIPA is an international non-profit association, established under Belgian law (as AISBL-IVZW) and based in Brussels.
