Main risks Price risk: It is defined as the value loss due to a negative fluctuation in the instrument market prices.
Interest rate risk: It is defined as the variation in the value of an instrument caused by fluctuations in interest rates. If the interest rate increases the bond value decreases.
Liquidity risk: It is defined as the contingency that the organization may not sell (purchase), or otherwise suffer excessive losses (expenses) due to the disposal of assets at unusual and significant discounts (premiums). We may also define it as the ability to operate any instrument has, i.e., how easily an asset may be sold or bought before its maturity date?
Issuer risk: It is defined as the chance the borrower or issuer of paper or debt will default its financial engagements in the term stated at the beginning and especially at the maturity of the operation.
A) Shares. It is a security which represents a part or a quota of a corporation’s equity. It grants its legitimate holder the condition of an associate and sometimes comes with the right to vote (depending on the type of share). An associate owns X% of a corporation according to the number of shares owned (expressed in money) once the equity of such corporation or company is divided.
Shares have Price, Liquidity, and Issuer Risk.
B) Options. A financial option is a derivative financial instrument established in a contract whereby the buyer has the right, but not the obligation to, purchase or sell goods or values (the underlying asset, which may be shares, bonds, stock indexes, etc.) at a predetermined price (strike price), up to an established date (maturity).
Options have Price, Rate, Liquidity and Issuer Risk.
C) Futures. Financial futures are a forward contract which establishes the purchase or sale of a given amount of an underlying instrument at an established price and predetermined future date.
Futures have Price, Rate, Liquidity and Issuer Risk.
D) Simultaneous Operations. They are buying-selling at maturity date operations. The buyer of a simultaneous operation buys bonds/liabilities at maturity date and sells those obligations at maturity date to the same entity after a period. At the time of the agreement, both the “going” buying/selling as well as the “return” selling/buying operation is closed.
Simultaneous operations have Price, Liquidity, and Issuer Risk.
E) Covenants. It is an agreement whereby a security holder sells them to an investor with the commitment of repurchase at an agreed price and a determined date.
Covenants have Liquidity and Issuer Risk.
