ADR/GDR

American Depositary Receipt (ADR) is a negotiable certificate issued by a U.S. bank representing a specified number of shares in a foreign (non-U.S.) stock that is traded on a U.S. exchange. ADRs are denominated in U.S. dollars, with the underlying security held by a U.S. financial institution overseas. ADRs help to reduce administration and duty costs that would otherwise be levied on each transaction. A Global Depositary Receipt (GDR) represents a bank certificate issued in more than one country for shares in a foreign company. The shares are held by a foreign branch of an international bank. The shares trade as domestic shares, but are offered for sale globally through the various bank branches. The term GDR is used throughout the globe and designates any foreign firm that trades on an exchange outside its home country. Like for an example, on the London Stock Exchange are traded shares of many Russian companies like Gazprom, Zberbank and more.

Options on Equities and Market Indexes

Options are popular in Western markets among the financial institutions, companies and private traders and investors. A financial derivative that gives the holder the right, but not the obligation, to buy or sell a basket of stocks at an agreed-upon price and before a certain date. An index option is similar to other options contracts, the difference being the underlying instruments are indexes. Options contracts, including index options, allow investors to profit from an expected market move or to reduce the risk of holding the underlying instrument.

Zerich Securities provide you with access to execute transactions with equity derivatives and stock indexes and OTC equity derivative instruments on all Major European and key worldwide exchanges.

Futures (SSF)

Single Stock Futures (SSFs) are futures contracts on individual shares (stocks). A futures contract is a legally binding agreement that gives you the right to buy or sell an underlying asset at a fixed price on a future date. There are currently over 80 well-known stock futures such as IBM, eBay, and Philip Morris.

The (SSFs) products provide investors with a cost-effective vehicle for participating in the equities markets. The price of an equity futures typically tracks the price of the underlying instrument,so trading strategies followed in the stock market are generally transferable to the stock futures market. Single stock futures may therefore be used with a broad range of trading strategies and for a variety of portfolio management needs.
