Incapital Named US Distributor of the Year by Structured Products Magazine & mtn-i Magazine

Incapital LLC has been named U.S. Distributor of the Year by both Structured Products & MTN-i Magazines. The announcements were made in the May 2011 issues and mark the fifth time in the past eight years that Incapital has received top industry awards.

“All of us at Incapital are proud to be named U.S. Distributor of the Year by Structured Products and MTN-i magazines,” said Incapital CEO John Radtke. “In the past year, we added several leading global institutions to our Market-Linked Products platform, including Goldman Sachs and The Royal Bank of Scotland. We are committed to lead the industry forward in the coming years.”

Scott Mitchell, Managing Director with J.P. Morgan’s Market-Linked Products division in New York, recently discussed Incapital’s relationship with his firm, a leading issuer of structured notes and CDs. 'We have worked closely with Incapital for more than 5 years as partners in the design and distribution of Market-Linked Products. The Incapital team has built a leading execution & educational platform for the broker-dealer community and takes a very long term approach in terms of thinking of where the products will be in 3 and 5 years time.’

“Incapital is broader and has more access than other distributors,” said Dayna Kleinman, first vice-president, fixed income and structured products consultant at Robert W. Baird. “Incapital can provide more color on the market: why something is trading a certain way or why terms are coming back a certain way.”

Scott Lang, head of third-party multi-asset retail distribution for North America at Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS) commented on the bank’s relationship with Incapital, "One of our strongest relationships is with Incapital. We have had the most success with them," said Lang. “That is because of the breadth of their distribution capabilities and the breadth of their product knowledge. They are receptive to new ideas as well as possessing the ability to generate new ones.”
