Our experts undertake Derivatives Trading on your behalf. Derivatives are financial contracts whose value is derived from underlying assets. Options, along with futures contracts and forward contracts, are some of the most common types of derivatives. The most common underlying assets for derivatives are stocks, bonds, commodities, currencies, interest rates, and market indexes. These assets are commonly purchased through brokerages. Derivatives can trade over-the-counter (OTC) or on an exchange. OTC derivatives constitute a greater proportion of the derivatives market. OTC-traded derivatives, generally have a greater possibility of counterparty risk. Counterparty risk is the danger that one of the parties involved in the transaction might default. These parties trade between two private parties and are unregulated. On the other hand, derivatives that are exchange-traded are standardized and more heavily regulated.

In the investment world, due diligence needs to be performed by companies seeking to make acquisitions, by equity research analysts, by fund managers, broker-dealers, and of course by investors. For individual investors, doing due diligence on a security or asset is voluntary, but recommended.
