Combining or carving up existing instruments to create new financial products.

Financial Engineering

The process of creating a new investment vehicle. For example, one may create a new derivative by taking existing structures and altering them to mitigate risk and/or increase the return. One may also theoretically invent a completely new financial product from nothing. Financial engineering is often mathematically intensive, as a number of risks and other factors must be considered before the new product is marketable.
