Exchange Traded Options
Options are geared investments and so infer a higher degree of risk and potential reward, and should only be considered by investors who are in an appropriate financial position, with the correct risk appetite.
Where appropriate and suitable, Hedley & Co offer access to exchange traded options to private clients.
Unlike buying or selling the security itself, an 'option' gives the investor the right but not the obligation to buy or sell a specific security at a pre-agreed price, on or up until a pre-determined date.
Options require high initial investment due to the margin requirements and are therefore not suitable to all prospective clients.
If you are interested in trading options with Hedley & Co the first step is to contact us. One of our experienced option traders will be able to discuss it further and help you establish whether or not we are right for you.
