Tempo Issuer & Counterparty Scorecards (‘TICS’)
Issuer and counterparty risk is the most fundamental risk of structured products. So, we think it’s straightforward – and important – to state the obvious: professional advisers (and investors) should seek to identify structured products backed by financially strong issuers and counterparties – not least as this is a regulatory expectation for professional advisers.
We also think that providers should prompt professional advisers to understand this essential aspect of structured products and support them in their research and due diligence. We therefore publish our Tempo Issuer & Counterparty Scorecards (‘TICS’) to provide transparency with regard to our internal processes behind our products – and to support professional advisers in their product research and issuer and counterparty due diligence.
Please take the time to look at the background information that introduces TICS, explains how to use them and, importantly, details what their purpose is and what they are and what they are not.
