Leeds & Holbeck, a U.K. thrift based in Leeds, is considering expanding its investment product range to include a multi-asset class note. Paul Riley, derivatives manager in Leeds, said several derivatives houses have been pitching hybrid notes, declining to name which firms he has spoken with. One cross-asset-class product he particularly liked was a basket of commodities, equities and house prices. "I have noticed that commodities are quite trendy right now," he said, noting he is also interested in house price-linked products, which have proved popular at other U.K. thrifts (DW, 8/6/04).

Riley said so far, Leeds & Holbeck has only structured one investment product, a FTSE cliquet deal issued last year with Credit Suisse First Boston as the counterparty. He declined comment on when the thrift might launch its next product.
