Specialist structured products firm Hilbert Investment Solutions* has joined the UK Structured Products Association (UKSPA).
Hilbert Founder Steve Lamarque, says: “we’re fundamentally aligned with the UKSPA’s view on the need to develop standards which ensure consumers are able to compare structured products with other forms of investment and get a fair deal. We’re therefore keen to support and participate in the current initiatives in which the UKSPA is engaged. We are also keen to align to the UKSPA Code and to utilise its product risk rating.”
Adrian Neave (pictured), Partner at Hilbert, has been appointed as Hilbert’s representative on the UKSPA’s Executive Committee. Adrian has a wealth of experience in this industry, having been the founder and Managing Director of Gilliat Financial Solutions – a business that, under his leadership, became the leading independent provider of structured products in the UK.
Neave says: “Our goal is to develop a range of innovative products to UK investors, delivered in a first-class way. Working with the other members of UKSPA will not only allow us to develop our own business goals, by sharing the best practices and high standards set by the UKSPA, but also to help shape and improve the industry as a whole. We welcome the opportunity to participate in the UKSPA and look forward to participating in upcoming initiatives.”
Zak De Mariveles, Chairman of the UKSPA, says: “We are delighted to welcome Hilbert Investment solutions as a member of the UKSPA. Our membership encompasses independent product manufacturers like Hilbert alongside global investment banks, giving the UKSPA and its members a unique opportunity to work together to help promote the industry, engage with regulators and provide a useful source of information to the wider investment community.”
