Globally Floored Contract

A guarantee found in structured investment products that provides a minimum payoff at maturity. A globally floored contract will protect the investor or minimize his loss in case the underlying investment loses its value.

With principal-protected notes, an investor receives a guarantee providing downside protection on the investment. A cost of this downside protection is that the investor will not participate in the full upside potential of the underlying investment.
