As a licensed Derivatives dealer, we can facilitate trading in derivatives on the exchange. Derivatives are financial contracts between two parties where the return depends on the performance of a specific underlying asset. Four common types of derivative contracts are futures, forwards, options and swaps. These can be based on assets like stocks,bonds,commodities,indexes or foreign currencies.
The benefits of investing in derivatives are:
Derivatives provide exposure to different asset classes
Derivatives can enhance or reduce risk
May be easier to trade than the underlying asset on the contract
