FTSE Russell Index-based derivatives include futures and options, financial contracts that provide investors with exposure to the performance of an asset class or group of stocks in a single trade. They are often used as risk-hedging tools bought with the expectation that the value of the underlying index will increase or decrease during the time of the contract. Investors choosing these products can gain access to more difficult to reach asset classes, regions and categories.
FTSE Russell does not distribute futures or options products. These products are listed for trading on the exchanges noted below; please contact the exchange or your broker for more information.
