Marex Solutions, a division of global commodities brokerage Marex Spectron, today launched a capital-protected structured investment product which offers institutional, corporate and individual clients an opportunity to invest in a sophisticated, secure and potentially high-yielding instrument.
The new product allows investors to tap growth opportunities globally across commodities, equities, foreign exchange, credit and mutual funds
The London-based broker said that demand for such services is expected to be relatively resilient as clients benefit from a competitive funding level from a multinational counterparty and achieve customised exposure to a broad spectrum of underlyings.

The broker’s latest expansion is a bid to strengthen its capabilities in the capital and liquidity management space, according to a Marex Spectron statement.
Nilesh Jethwa, CEO of Marex Solutions, commented: “It Is through the use of new technology that we can offer flexible, intelligent, transparent and cost-effective structured products. This is what we have achieved in a short-period of time in the corporate hedging space and is where we also see a significant opportunity in the structured investment market.”
Marex Spectron’s structured investment product is designed to support the group’s growth during one of the more tumultuous times for the industry, as there is a high degree of turnover amongst banks and other competitors, many of which are exiting the space. Overall, the expansion of the investment vehicles offers more opportunities to Marex Spectron, allowing it to better meet capital and liquidity management demands.
The past year saw Marex Spectron also solidify its position across global commodities markets, including seeing its volumes maintain the top spot on the London Metal Exchange (LME), as well as on the LME Select electronic platform. In terms of the energy sector, the group was a top three broker across agriculture, including soft commodities such as sugar, coffee, cocoa and European grains options.
