Leonteq and BlackRock have launched a cooperation for the development, distribution and marketing of derivative products linked to BlackRock’s Luxembourg mutual fund range and iShares UCITS ETF range. BlackRock is one of the leading asset managers globally.
As a strategic partner, Leonteq will develop and market structured investment products with BlackRock funds and iShares ETFs as underlying assets. In addition, Leonteq will include BlackRock’s range of funds and iShares as underlyings on its digital marketplace for structured products, LynQs, and generate monthly product ideas for distribution across its global salesforce.
Leonteq’s fund derivatives desk provides dedicated trading and structuring expertise on mutual funds, working closely with a wide range of fund management companies to deliver innovative solutions and competitive pricing. Thanks to Leonteq’s structured products expertise, it is able to offer clients downside protection, potential for higher returns or more investment flexibility when investing in mutual funds.
Lukas Ruflin, CEO at Leonteq, said:
“We are proud to be partnering with BlackRock and excited that our fund derivates capabilities have convinced the largest investment manager worldwide. We look forward to presenting new investment ideas and services on fund derivatives to our global client franchise.”
