BPP Professional Education
This course provides a insight into the two main styles of derivative seen in the UK equity market: "delta one" and options. The course covers index futures, contracts for difference and exchange traded funds along with call and put options. We consider how these products are used by speculators and hedgers, as well as examine their mechanics and pricing.
Learning Outcomes include a greater understanding of:
- The trading and settlement mechanisms for exchange-traded index futures
- How fair future prices can be theoretically derived, and the impact of dividend yields on forward pricing
- How some other “delta-one” derivatives are used in the equity market
- The key features of option contracts
A CPD certificate of completion will be provided by BPP Professional Education Limited upon successful completion of the online course.
