Welcome to Meteor

Please select your user type after reading and agreeing to the following terms:

Our investment products can provide both individual and institutional investors with flexible investment vehicles, which can accommodate varying appetites for risk, asset exposure and capital protection.

It is important that you understand the risks attached to each of the investments. The key risk areas are summarised below, but please remember that these are general risks and those relevant to a particular product are set out in the product literature.

Meteor does not provide financial advice or guidance on tax issues and we recommend that you talk to a financial adviser if you are considering investing. Some products require you to seek professional financial advice. Such products will be highlighted on the website and in the brochure.

Any investment should only form part of your total investment portfolio. You should also maintain savings you can access immediately and without penalty to meet any emergency cash needs that may arise during the investment term.

Availability and Residence – due to local regulatory and legal requirements, not all products described on this website are available in all jurisdictions and some may be available on a limited basis only.

The securities mentioned on this website are not being offered, and will not be sold, within the United States or to, or for the account or benefit of, any U.S. person. The term U.S. person shall have the meaning as defined in Regulation S under the United States Securities Act of 1933 and includes, among other things, U.S. residents and U.S. corporations and partnerships.

Cancellation Risk – the risk that if you decide to cancel the investment after assets have been purchased you could lose some of your money if the market(s) or asset(s) to which your contract is linked have fallen since the purchase date.

Counterparty Risk   – the risk that a financial institution with whom we arrange the assets to provide investment returns does not, or cannot, pay the amounts due, which could cause you to lose some or all of your money and any investment returns that would have otherwise been payable.

Early Encashment Risk – the risk that if you decide to encash the investment before maturity you could get less back than you invested. Administration charges for early encashment will increase any losses.

Inflation Risk – the risk that inflation will reduce the real value of your investment over time.

Investment Risk – The risk that the market(s) or asset(s) to which your investment is linked fall in value, which could cause you to lose money.

ISA Transfer Risk – if you wish to transfer an existing ISA this must be done in cash, which means your existing ISA manager will sell your investments and you may be charged an exit or transfer fee. There is the potential for loss of income or growth if markets should rise while your transfer remains pending.

Liquidity Risk – the risk that you may not be able to immediately access the value of your investment.

Pricing Risk – the risk that a financial institution with whom underlying investments have been arranged may not be able to quote regular prices making it difficult to value your investment and delaying any early encashment request you may make.

Product Risk – the risk that the product design could produce a return that is lower than a direct investment in the market(s) or asset(s) to which the product is linked.

Tax Risk – The values of any tax reliefs will depend on your individual circumstances. You should note that the levels and bases of taxation could change in the future and these changes may be applied retrospectively.

It is important that you read any product literature carefully and in full so that you understand how the product works and can decide whether or not you are prepared to accept the risks and the possible consequences of investing in a particular contract, before proceeding with an investment.

Our top 5 of 2019

As we settle into 2020 and look forward to the year ahead, we’ve been looking back on some of our favourite ‘This week at Meteor’ moments of 2019. 

1. FTSE 100 Autocalls Index Analysis 
Over the course of 2019, one of the most popular features each month was the FTSE Autocalls Index Analysis. Each monthly update provides market performance of the FTSE 100 Autocalls Indices, Meteor’s own indices based on our FTSE-only plans and we look forward to continuing these updates into 2020. For easy access to these updates bookmark our research and analysis page – also make sure you’re subscribed to our weekly updates to get the report straight to your inbox.


2. February 2019: The rise of Environmental, Social and Governance investing
Like many others in our industry, Environmental, Social and Governance (or ESG) investing was on our minds early in 2019. We had noticed both an increasing number of studies suggesting that the shares of companies scoring poorly in ESG practices experienced higher volatility and an increasing appetite for socially responsible investments. Understandably, many investors want their investments to have a positive impact on society. In the second half of 2019 we were pleased to launch our first Monthly Contingent Income Plan as part of Societe Generale’s range of structured products that promote Positive Impact Finance (PIF). We are proud of this partnership and look forward to providing ethical investing options to our clients into 2020. You can see our current PIF offering here.


3. October 2019: The ‘Anytime’ Autocall
In October we introduced a new product – the Daily Autocall, to our range. The Daily Autocall improves on the standard FTSE autocall market – after the Plan’s first year, it can kick out on any business day as long as the closing level of the index is at or above its opening level. This new product type has been successful in all subsequent iterations, actually proving to be one of our most popular Plans of the year and we are pleased to have it as a standard offering for the future.

4. October 2019: Introducing the Counterparty League Tables
We also launched our new Counterparty League Tables early on in October. The monthly report ranks the global investment banks within the structured product sector using three separate criteria – credit ratings, CDS their global systemically important banks ranking. It aims to help advisers assess the respective strength of a range of global investment banks during the investment selection process. The best way to keep up with our Counterparty League Tables each month is to bookmark the research and analysis section of our Resources page.


5. November 2019: We’ve got a new look!
We were excited to finally launch our new and improved website at the end of 2019, after much preparation and hard work. We designed and developed our new site with our customers in mind, with a strong focus on decluttered content and adding easy to use features that truly matter to our users.
