OTC Exotic Structured Products
Straits Financial LLC is proud to offer clients access to our 24/7 over-the-counter (OTC) desk through our Structured Products Division. These OTC products are designed as a tailored risk management solution for commodity based consumers and producers. This risk management tool complements our existing product offering, allowing end users and producers the ability to customize their hedges through a tailored product offering.
OTC Exotic Structured products are agreed upon contracts between two counterparties that allow full customization and creativity to meet your risk mitigation needs. Exchange-traded options have fixed strikes, expirations, and characteristics that create many layers of limitations. This complimentary tailored risk mitigation approach allows for a fully flexible hedging tool used to enhance profit margins for all risk profiles. Our team works directly with you to identify your unique risks and needs and then develops a tailored strategy around those needs, thus limiting your exposure to price risk.
These products can vary from swaps that function like classic futures and options, to structured products which use multiple products or contracts to achieve specific targets.
