Our Optimal Start Principal protected products, which we currently offer as Desjardins Structured Notes, picked up the coveted Deal of the Year, Americas award at the 8th annual SRP Americas Conference in Chicago.
These notes allow us to take advantage of market downturns and rebounds, a trend we've been seeing since last fall.
With their unique combination of guaranteed capital and potential returns, Desjardins structured products are designed to benefit from a variety of market views. These innovative products were designed to complement a portfolio in interesting ways.

An investment in principal protected notes may not be suitable for all investors. Important information about principal protected notes is contained in the Information Statement and the Oral Disclosure Document of each note. Investors are strongly encouraged to attentively read the documentation related to a note issuance before investing and to discuss the suitability of an investment in the notes with their investment advisor or dealer representative before making a decision. The documentation related to each note issuance is available on the summary page of that issuance. The offer and sale of notes may be prohibited or restricted by laws in certain jurisdictions in Canada and notes are not offered for sale outside Canada. Notes may only be purchased in the jurisdictions where they may be lawfully offered for sale and only through individuals duly registered and authorized to sell them. Past performance is not indicative of future performance. The return on principal protected notes is dependent on the change (which may be positive or negative) in value of the underlying assets during the term of the note and it is possible that there may be no interest payable to the investor. Return on a note cannot be established before maturity. Some notes may be subject to caps, participation rates and other limits which feed through to performance. The full principal amount of a principal protected note will be repaid at maturity only. An investment in notes is subject to certain risk factors. Please read the Information Statement and Oral Disclosure Document for complete details, including the precise formula for determining return on a note.
