The term "derivative" refers to financial products which are ‘derived’ from underlying shares. Derivatives modify the performance, reward and risk of the shares upon which they are based. Examples of these commonly utilised products include:
- Exchange Traded Options (ETO's)
- CFDs (Contracts for Difference)
As derivatives are commonly based on larger-sized shares, the ASX derivatives market represents a complementary focus to Sentinel’s Blue Chip specialisation. We employ a variety of products which allow investors to gain directional exposure (long, short, neutral), hedge, sell and buy time or obtain leverage to individual shares. Sentinel’s specialist ASX-accredited Derivatives Advisers are highly experienced and have personal knowledge both investing and dealing in these instruments. They can provide specialist advice, assist you in transacting in these instruments or simply just provide a valuable second opinion to bounce an idea off.
