Part of the Financial Engineering Explained book series (FEX)


Financial derivatives are widely used in economic activities by a variety of market participants for the purposes of hedging, investment and speculations, among other things. A derivative is a legal contract agreed between two or more parties, which defines the contingent claims or cash flows “derived” from the underlying price to be paid by the parties in the future. Derivatives can be traded on the exchanges or over the counter (OTC). OTC derivatives and their valuations are the focus of this book.
