UBS BLOC

Optimisation

Higher returns when markets are tending sideways

BLOCs are discount certificates allowing you to acquire an underlying indirectly at a discount. This price discount compensates for the limited participation in the upside of the underlying. You receive either the underlying or cash on expiry.
