International Structured Products Forum 2022

International Structured Products Forum 2022

SIX Swiss Exchange

Lucerne, Switzerland

In 2021, the International Structured Products Forum (ISPF) returned in full force: from 7 to 8 September, the 11th ISPF welcomed leading Swiss & EU representatives from across the structured products industry to Lucerne to discuss the challenges facing the sector going forward. Read the Executive Summary of the 2021 edition.

One year later, we’re looking back on extraordinary times. After two years dominated by the Covid-19 crisis, the devastating war in the Ukraine has taken over the worldwide attention as well as the control of financial markets. The turmoil on the markets in the last two years has been unprecedented.

It is all the more delightful that the Structured Products industry has mastered these upheavals remarkably well. The demand for Structured Products proves to be resilient and investors believe in the products’ ability to take advantage of various market movements, not only the positive ones. These turbulent times have impacted all of us personally and professionally. We are all the happier to see many of our colleagues and industry representatives at this year’s Forum.

The 12th International Structured Products Forum in Lucerne will take place on 6-7 September 2022, We all look forward to the personal exchange of thoughts and ideas and hope you will be able to join us.

We are pleased to welcome Lukas Ruflin, CEO Leonteq Securities AG as a Keynote Speaker at this year’s Forum. He will be talking about the rise of technology platforms, followed by Gerd Leonhard, Futurist, talking about new technologies & digitalization. Please find the full program below or download our one-pager. The registration fee remains unchanged at CHF 650.
