Options & Derivatives

Sentinel Stockbroking specialises in Australia’s top blue chip companies and their associated derivatives. In particular, we focus on one of the most widely utilised and traded blue chip derivatives called "Exchange Trade Options" (ETOs), or "Options" as they are commonly known. Options strongly complement the blue chip market enabling investors to improve the productivity of an underlying share, or portfolio of shares. Sentinel uses options to enhance:

  • Investment Returns – maximising the earning potential of your shares
  • Activity and Opportunity – ensuring your shares work to their full potential
  • Downside Protection – 'hedging' or insuring against losses
  • Directional Exposure – enabling investors to invest in any market direction

Sentinel offers a full stockbroking service comprised of expert options knowledge, experience and specialist systems which can accommodate all investment needs. Our specialist ASX-Accredited Options Advisors are able to provide service and advice tailored to your personal needs and objectives including:

  • Advice on buying and selling
  • Advice on Options in combination with overall Portfolio Management
  • Advice on Options investment strategies
  • Advice on risk management
  • Recommendations on trading ideas
  • Options education
  • Regular contact and alerts

Crucially, Sentinel’s Options Advisers all have personal, real-life practical experience investing in the options market. They understand what works and what does not - and it is this 'street-smart' knowledge which we believe is of most value to our clients. We are able to accommodate all types of investors ranging from first time investors with little or no knowledge of Options, through to highly experienced professionals.
