Structured investments usually combine a debt security with exposure linked to the performance of an underlying asset, such as equities, interest rates, commodities or currencies. In some instances, exposure can be linked to two or more underlying assets, which are often referred to as hybrid offerings or derivative investments. Structured investments are typically originated and offered by investment banks and come in a variety of forms, the most common being senior unsecured notes of the issuer. They can also come in the form of CD bank deposits, and their principal (but not unrealized gains) is insured up to applicable limits by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. (FDIC), an independent agency of the U.S. government.
