Under the new partnership, VP Bank will be a guarantor and take charge of distributing the products.

Liechtenstein-based VP Bank is developing new structured product offerings in partnership with Leonteq, a tech platform operating in the space.

In future, VP Bank will use Leonteq’s technology platform to offer and trade in structured investment products, and market them to clients under a white-labelling issuance model. The bank already offers structured investment products via third parties. Under the new partnership, VP will be a guarantor and take charge of distributing the products.

As part of its side of the arrangement, Leonteq will provide an international distribution mandate, giving VP Bank (as a guarantor) access to a network of investors around the world. This partnership will create a guarantor in the form of a Liechtenstein-based bank with an “A” rating from Standard & Poor’s.

Subject to approval from the authorities, VP Bank’s first guaranteed structured investment products will be available on the Leonteq platform in the first quarter of 2022, VP Bank said in a statement yesterday. 

“This underlines our strategic objective to become an international wealth management service provider. Leonteq is the ideal service and technology partner in this respect, as its areas of expertise complement ours perfectly, and vice versa,” Paul Arni, chief executive of VP Bank, said
