About Structured Products
Structured products are a combination of options (puts and calls) combined into a pre-packaged trade. These trades are not offered on “legacy” or decentralized finance (DeFi) exchanges at this time and are considered “over-the-counter” (OTC) in legacy markets. The pre-packaged trade is negotiated between BlockFills and the prospective institutional client.
The primary benefit of structured product solutions is customization. Specifically, these solutions give institutions the ability to define risk parameters by customizing size, timeframe, desired payout and duration of the trade. Structured products also offer an alternative liquidity source.
