Instreet Investment has launched its latest product, the Instreet Link 74, which aims to provide investors with exposure to potential upside of Oil.

Boutique investment manager, Instreet Investment, today announced the appointment of Marcus Obermeder as sales director and James Poon as head of product development.
Instreet managing director George Lucas says the appointments are a strong signal to the markets that we are “passionate” about developing innovative investment strategies and enhancing awareness of structured investments.
A financial adviser and investment manager with more than nine years’ experience, Obermeder comes to Instreet from Citi where he provided tailored advice to clients with a particular focus on structured products and managed funds.

Instreet Investments Limited has entered into a joint venture with U.S. start-up Acorns Grow, Inc., to bring the company’s hugely successful savings and investment app to Australia.

Acorns is a free app for iPhone and Android smartphones that allows people to round up their daily purchases and automatically Invest the Change® into a diversified portfolio of index funds.

Australia is the first country outside North America to secure a partnership to co-develop and launch a local version of the app. It will go into beta testing in Q4 of this year and will be available for download in Q1 2016.

After nearly two years in development, Acorns launched in the US August 2014 by father and son founders, Jeff and Walter Cruttenden. Since launch, Acorns has grown to more than 750,000 members and opened hundreds of thousands investment accounts on mobile platforms.

“Acorns has always wanted to take the app to international markets and do so with a company that has strong local knowledge in the financial services sector,” said Acorns co-founder and CEO Jeff Cruttenden. “We were introduced to Instreet and quickly realized they shared our vision of solving the worldwide savings and investment problem, through simple technology.”

A critical Product Ruling decision by the Australian Taxation Office (ATO) has lifted a cloud of uncertainty hanging over Deferred Purchase Agreements (DPAs) – and provides clarity on the taxation treatment of the Instreet Masti DPA.
Deferred Purchase Agreements are a common and effective financial product used to issue structured products in the Australian market.

The boutique structured product provider, Instreet Investment, has acquired the Emerald Club and its flagship product, The Emerald Wrap, which offers an ethical platform for Responsible investing (RI).

After a year of stock markets globally rallying, there is increasing discussion about the share market’s “true value”.

A survey on Wealth Know How (www.wealth-knowhow.com.au), Australia’s first independent financial video-based website, shows that the foremost questions on investors’ minds was current market and economic commentary about national and international events such as how the markets will digest the Russian invasion of the Crimea and its impact on global markets.
