Principal–Protected Notes


By enrolling in and completing the Principal–Protected Notes CE Course, you'll obtain an overview of the nature and structure of these products and gain the knowledge required to advise your clients about their suitability. You will also get coverage of a related product called Principal at Risk (PAR) notes.

You'll learn how principal-protected notes are structured, how they work, what factors affect their performance before and at maturity, their risks and fees, and how they fit into an investor's portfolio. As well, you will learn about the features, benefits and risks of PAR notes.

By the end of this course, you'll feel confident in advising your clients about principal-protected and PAR notes and when these products should be added to their portfolios.
