Awards for Excellence 2012: Best Structured Products House

Investors and financial institutions are demanding more innovative and tailored structured products. SG CIB is the stand-out provider.

Awards for Excellence 2012

Best Structured Products House: Société Générale CIB

Also nominated: HSBC and Citi

The past 12 months have been challenging for structured products, with two market downturns divided by an equity and credit rally, against a backdrop of very low interest rates. Some banks chose to pull back under pressure from capital charges and the increased cost of having to offer tailored solutions rather than off-the-shelf products, yet Société Générale Corporate & Investment Banking deepened its commitment.
