Introduction to collars/fences

  • High Net Worth clients are unaware of the tools at their disposal. 
  • Clients can [protect their investments through various structures i.e. Collars, while maintaining large potential upside and protecting 100% of their downside
  • alternatively protecting a portion of their downside in the underlying share or portfolio i.e. 90% or 80% collar structure
  • reasons to collar include diversification to reduce concentration risk and market risk
  • assets are pledged and not sold: therefore no cgt event is triggered


Should clients not need protection all the way to zero, they are able to protect the asset down to a certain level. therefore having the ability to participate in a lot more upside. 

bottom line

  • the above two structures can be tailored made to suit client risk profile and expectations
  • clients could also monetize their assets (create liquidity) on the back of these structures – with the respective banks.
