Incapital served as the sole underwriter for several CD and Note issuance wrappers linked to the Goldman Sachs MoBu 5ER index based on cross-asset class investing as a way to diversify risk.
Incapital is ranked #1 in number of new issue Agencies and #12 in volume underwritten, according to Bloomberg LEAG tables as of 12/31/2016.
Incapital was presented the US Distributor of the Year award as it continues to successfully introduce and distribute new and innovative products - such as structured market-linked certificates of deposit - along with prominent issuer partners. Growing the advisor sales process and offering continuing educational resources have also been two key focuses.
Incapital was instrumental in the launch of the International Finance Corporation's 'Impact Notes' initiative, which came as government-sponsored enterprises Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac retrench away from structured notes. The prime supranational credit is looking to source funding from US retail buyers of lighter plays, particularly in the interest rate-linked asset class – a key area for GSEs.
Another innovative aspect that Incapital introduced to the US market was the 'memory feature': a device to ensure that holders never miss an expected quarterly payout. It rolls up past missed coupons and releases them when conditions are again met, as was the case on a 15-year final maturity note issued by Societe Generale linked to the Russell 2000 and EuroStoxx 50.
With a market in need of issuer diversification, Incapital distributed the majority of SunTrust's landmark USD100m floored FRN. The deal ranked as the only one of its size not from a Wall Street house or leading international issuer.
Incapital brought much-needed innovation to the US structured note market, adding further return potential to CMS steepeners with equity index-based puts at maturity. Combining structuring prowess and wide distribution capability with Morgan Stanley, they delivered a string of hybrid notes last year that has continued into 2014.
Incapital characterizes 2012 as the year in which it launched a ‘coordinated initiative’ to promote the education and distribution of non-principal-protected medium-term notes in the retail market.

Incapital was presented the Structured Product Distributor of the Year award at the 2012 mtn-i Awards Americas conference in Miami, Florida on April 19, 2012. mtn-i cited Incapital’s pioneering presence in the market across the diverse universe of structures from equity-linked notes to Callable Step-Up Notes. mtn-i magazine is a leading industry publication that covers the structured note and medium-term note market across the UK, Europe and the Americas
Incapital had a most powerful year. As other distributors nursed falling volumes and scratched their heads over the tweaks they could offer on certificates of deposit (CDs) and plain vanilla notes, Incapital innovated big time, won over trophy clients and cemented a reputation for being close to the heart of structured products education and aftersales.
