Incapital Wins Editor’s Award and Deal of the Year at the 2017 mtn-i Americas Awards

Firm Recognized for Its Brand & Distribution Leadership and Callable Floating Rate Notes

Chicago, IL, March 22, 2017 – Incapital LLC, a leading underwriter and distributor of fixed income securities, today announced that it will be the recipient of the Editor’s Award for Brand and Distribution Leadership and Deal of the Year Award at the upcoming 2017 mtn-i Americas Structured Note Showcase & Awards ceremony.

Editor’s Award

In proclaiming Incapital the winner of the Editor’s Award, mtn-i stated: “Incapital’s bold branding and advertising initiative for Market-Linked Securities has reframed the benefits of these investor solutions.”

In 2016, Incapital introduced a new suite of Market-Linked Certificate of Deposit educational materials aimed at retail investors. By focusing first on investor challenges, the firm’s goal was to put Market-Linked Products into a context that everyday investors and their advisors can appreciate. In addition, the new materials are upfront and transparent about the risks investors may face. Incapital now offers an extensive suite of FINRA-reviewed brochures and videos, covering a range of topics such as Market-Linked CDs, Market-Linked Notes, understanding statement values and protecting principal with FDIC insurance. More resources are on the horizon, demonstrating continuous pursuit of increased investor and advisor education.

Incapital’s robust distribution team is focused on building relationships with banks, broker-dealers and institutional investors. For the first time in 2016, five of the firm’s partners selected Incapital as their exclusive distributor of Market-Linked Products. These exclusive relationships recognize Incapital’s strength in product, distribution, education and technology, along with its dedication to outstanding service.

Deal of the Year Award

In addition to the Editor’s Award, Incapital’s Floating Rate 3-Month USD LIBOR-Linked Note with Goldman Sachs was awarded Deal of the Year recognition from mtn-i. Key features of the deal included 100% principal protection at maturity, as well as a coupon that is uncapped and floored at 0%.

“Our sales, marketing and product teams have worked tirelessly to create an industry-leading presence in the Market-Linked Products space,” said Hugh McHaffie, Managing Director and Head of Incapital’s Wealth Management Solutions division. “We’re delighted to receive these awards that distinguish our efforts and fulfill our mission statement – to be recognized as the premier distributor of risk management solutions supporting financial advisors in attaining their clients’ investment goals.”
