Actively Managed Certificate
Actively Managed Certificates are structured products issue by a luxembourg SPV.
Usual structured products are pre-packaged market-linked investments which use derivatives to gain a specific type of exposure to an asset or basket of assets.
AMCs differ as they can replicate an index provided by a third party advisor, or match an asset allocation linked to any type of asset, including shares, bonds, derivatives, currencies, investment funds, indices or other types of securities.
They can also sometimes be linked with real estate, private equity, participations, future cash flows or intellectual property.
They deliver payoffs which are directly linked to the underlying asset acquired by the securitisation SPV and tracks it in a way that facilitates customised risk-return objectives.
