Excerpt from Reverse Inquiry Transactions in the Spotlight -

“Reverse inquiry transactions” take a variety of forms. In the classic example of a reverse inquiry, a particular investor or its representative reaches out to a structured note manufacturer to request a note of a particular type, underlying asset, and other pricing terms.

In addition, a variety of transaction types, and types of relationships among the parties, fall within this rubric. A prior course of dealing may exist between the investor, on the one hand, and the product manufacturer on the other hand. The parties may engage in ongoing discussions as to a particular transaction type. In addition, an investor may reach out to a variety of manufacturers about the same investment idea, and select the one that reverts with the most favorable pricing terms.
