Derivatives and Hedging Instruments

Derivative instruments are financial contracts whose value depends on another financial asset. Options and futures contracts are the most common derivatives. Such contracts can be used to hedge financial exposure. Hedging refers to the practice of reducing or fully eliminating the risk associated with holding a volatile asset. If used properly, hedging transactions can take a lot of worry and stress out of investing. With the volatility of the Kenyan financial markets, hedging currency and interest would be the prudent practice.
