CAIS and Goldman Sachs seek to increase RIA access to structured products

Goldman Sachs is to make its structured products offering available through CAIS.

According to the terms of the agreement, pre-qualified CAIS member firms will have access to the Goldman Sachs structured products capabilities.

Advisors that use CAIS will benefit from the efficiency of a centralised calendar offering and automated indications of interest. Additionally, all CAIS member firms will have direct access to Goldman Sachs' resources to create customised offerings.

"We are pleased to be partnering with CAIS, which has a strong reputation and relationships within the registered investment advisor community," says Bill Shelton, a managing director within Goldman Sachs' private investor products group in the Americas. "Their unparalleled technology-driven process and institutional framework delivers quality financial products to the fragmented wealth management industry, and will complement the products and capabilities we offer through the structured products group."

Advisors are increasingly using structured products to efficiently access markets while customising risk and return parameters, making this product line a natural addition to CAIS. As CAIS expands its product offering, the firm remains dedicated to providing improved access, information, and execution across all listed funds and products.

"Structured products are a natural extension of our existing offering of pre-qualified hedge funds, private equity funds and precious metals," says Rafay Farooqui (pictured), CAIS co-founder and president. "Our relationship with Goldman Sachs furthers CAIS's commitment to collaborating with industry leading participants across all aspects of our business."
