TIPER® Specifications


  1. TIPER® indicates objectively the risk (degree of loss potential) of a product at a specific time. (i.e. how much loss potential am I facing / what is the investment quality of the product)


  1. TIPER® indicates the risk level of a product (i.e. what is my specific loss potential at this time)
  2. TIPER® indicates a degree of loss potential. (i.e. a rise in the security level from 0% to 33% means the degree of loss potential has decreased by 1/3)
  3. TIPER® is expressed as a single security level. (i.e. 0-100)
  4. TIPER® is comprehensible to the layman. (i.e. expressed as a percentage)
  5. Any absolute TIPER® value indicates a similar risk level across all product categories. (i.e. a 45% security level must have a similar significance/meaning for bonds as for structured products)
  6. Any variation of the TIPER® value indicates a similar variation of the risk level across all product categories. (i.e. a drop in the security level from 100% to 50% shall be understood in a way that the risk level of the product has been increased by half for any product)
  7. TIPER® is based on real time data to be able to express itself in real time with streaming capacity. (i.e. continuous real time / live information)


  1. TIPER® takes into account any change in market facts. (i.e. price, liquidity, volatility)

MiFID II Product Manufacturers and Distributors

Article 16 (3) of MiFID II requires product manufactures to "maintain, operate and review a process for the approval of a new financial instrument and significant adaptations of existing financial instruments". It "shall specify an identified target market of end clients within the relevant category of clients for each financial instrument and shall ensure that all relevant risks to such identified target market are assessed and that the intended distribution strategy is consistent with the identified target market". Furthermore, the financial instruments that are manufactured must be reviewed regularly.

Product governance rules apply to all products sold on primary and secondary markets, irrespective of the type of product or service provided and of the requirements applicable at point of sale” (cf. recital 18). Article 9 of this delegated directive comes with a whole range of precise requirements to be fulfilled by all product manufactures.
