- The platform will allow DIF Broker’s financial advisors to customize protective structured options strategies
- For clients in the Iberian Peninsula and South America
The international broker-dealer DIF Broker announced that it is partnering with Vest’s technology subsidiary, a digital solutions provider for options-centric structured products. Vest’s technology will power a platform allowing DIF Broker’s financial advisors to customize protective structured options strategies on behalf of its clients throughout the Iberian Peninsula and South America.
The offerings will enable the clients of the broker to access a number of innovative, options-based investment strategies, including those that aim to provide some measure of downside protection. “Our main goal with the new service is to offer a uniquely useful product for our investors,” said Paulo Pinto, Chief Operating Officer at the broker-dealer. “Our dedicated team of investment consultants will be on hand with the aim of offering Vest’s distinctive services in a number of regions where such strategies have previously been unavailable.”
Vest’s technology subsidiary develops technological and software solutions for brokerages and investment advisers alike, allowing them to offer structured notes-like payouts to their customers, using exchange traded options to construct the payouts. It reduces the complexity of options trading while providing investors with targeted protection, enhanced returns, and a level of predictability unattainable with most other investments, says the company.
