ABN AMRO is readying the launch of a commodity/equity-linked retail note in Hong Kong within weeks, which the firm believes will be a first for the market. Rupertus Rothenhaeuser, Asian head of private investor products at ABN in Hong Kong, said with equity volatility remaining subdued and the flood of firms issuing pure equity-linked products this year, the bank is structuring in exposure to commodities, which have gained attention from investors given the run-up in prices. ABN has been applying the same strategy to warrants, launching a flurry of commodity-linked products (DW, 5/13) and plans to begin issuing currency-linked warrants later this month.

As for the upcoming structured note, Rothenhaeuser said the product will be capital guaranteed, but as it is still being finalized and he declined to further comment on the detail of the product.
