Example text

Although Einstein had developed the theory of relativity and astronauts had landed on the moon, no one knew how to price an option. That’s because in the 1960s, nobody cared, and derivatives were unimportant. What a difference the following decades have made! Beginning in the early 1970s, derivatives have undergone explosive growth in the types of contracts traded and in their importance to the financial and real economy. 1 shows that after 2006, the total notional value of outstanding derivatives contracts exceeded $450 trillion.

These are explained later in the book. Some common terminology will help us understand the various derivative contracts traded: 1. Real assets include land, buildings, machines, and commodities, whereas financial assets include stocks, bonds, and currencies—both real and financial assets have tangible values. 2. Notional variables include interest rates, inflation rates, and security indexes, which exist as notions rather than as tangible assets. 1: The Influence of Regulations, Taxes, and Transaction Costs on Financial Innovation In the old days, finance mainly consisted of legal issues, institutional description, and investment rules of thumb.

Generally speaking, there are four risks to be managed: (1) market risk, which includes commodity (including equity) price risk, interest rate risk, and foreign currency price risk; (2) credit risk; (3) liquidity risk; and (4) operational risk. We walk you through these different risks, with an emphasis on market risk, and discuss how they can be managed in business as well as in one’s personal life. O Fourth, not only do governments regulate the markets, but many government entities use derivatives to promote the public’s welfare.
