Structured finance is complex finance which is used by larger companies which normally aren’t suitable for conventional finance products.

There are ‘normal’ or ‘vanilla’ types of financing a transaction, which are widely available on the market – such as mortgages or overdrafts

This type of finance differs as it is usually a highly involved financial instrument that is offered to large corporate or financial institution, which has a complex financing need and differs to conventional financial products. The aim is to create situations in order to provide non-flow financing solutions and structured risk mitigation products for clients when looking at a number of industries and classes of assets.
Why is structured finance important?

Structured financial products are not always the typical lending and ‘market products’ that are advanced on the high street.

Usually structured finance is necessary when there is one or a number of discretionary transactions, and it is where alternative lending is used with risk mitigation instruments implemented.
What’s a structured note?

A structured note refers to a debt security, which is issued by a financier and the return that is linked to it; it is based on the underlying performance of a basket of assets or index. These assets of pools at the base may be equity indexes, stocks, commodities, interest rates or currencies.

However, there are ways in which finance can flow into a company or special purpose vehicle, which may be structured in an alternative way in order to provide comfort to a lender.
