Equity Linked Investments

Equity Linked Investments (ELIs) are structured products linked to an underlying stock.

equity linked investments

You can earn an enhanced yield* by taking a view that the underlying stock will not fall below a certain price. If the stock falls below this price at a predetermined future date, you will receive the underlying stock. ELIs are issued by financial institutions and investors are exposed to the issuer's credit risk.

ELIs are only recommended for investors with an appropriate risk appetite as they carry significant risks.


  • Equity Linked Investments offer an attractive potential yield in either a stagnant or bullish market.
  • Investors waiting to buy a stock at a lower price can also potentially benefit from an enhanced yield while waiting for the stock price to drop.
  • Enhanced yields* may be earned based on your view of the underlying asset and the risk undertaken.

*Generally, yields depend on the level of risk undertaken by the customer. Yields are generally lower for less aggressive strike rates.
