‘We used structured products partly to play the volatility. But we were also looking to provide clients with a return regardless of macro conditions. We were looking obviously at volatility and we were looking at return potential,’ he said.
Continuing with the defensive theme, at the moment Fulcher is looking at defensive autocalls and is still cautious on the prospects for 2013.
