English translation:specific product packages
Explanation:
The obvious answer would be "applications". I very much sympathise with your reflex of questioning the obvious and searching for an alternative (always doubt an obvious answer!). It would perhaps help if you could offer more context to show why you are unhappy with the obvious answer.

My answer is an attempted alternative in spite of the lack of much context (hence the low confidence). It assumes that your hero was actually putting together product packages to present to investors - not just the securities/money instruments/currency products themselves, but products rolled together into some sort of fund, scheme or package.
