Exchange Traded Options
Where appropriate and suitable Hedley & Co is able to offer access to exchange traded options to 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-agreed time.
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.
How are Options used?
Hedley & Co offer option trading to 3 investor groups;
- Professional clients
- Retail clients on an execution only basis - should they satisfy our suitability requirements.
- Discretionary clients with tailored strategies to maximise portfolio performance
