Standard Bank has launched a new US dollar-denominated credit derivatives product, opening up African credit opportunities to global investors hungry for structured products. The programme will issue credit-linked notes (CLNs), providing exposure to otherwise inaccessible African credit and meeting growing African investor demand for portfolio diversification.

The Luxembourg structured note programme is designed to provide investors with the opportunity to access African yield in sovereign and corporate debt, including foreign exchange, through risk-managed structured products.
