 A derivative is a financial instrument whose value is derived from the value of another asset,
which is known as the underlying.
 Derivative is a contract or a product whose value is derived from value of some other asset
known as underlying. Derivatives are based on wide range of underlying assets.
 A Derivative is not a product. It is a contract that derives its value from changes in the price of
the underlying. When the price of the underlying changes, the value of the derivative also
 Example :
The value of a gold futures contract is derived from the value of the underlying asset i.e. Gold.


Derivative contracts have several variants. The most common variants are futures, options.

Futures: A futures contract is an agreement between two parties to buy or sell an asset at a certain
time in the future at a certain price. The Futures contracts are special types of forward contracts in the
sense that the former are standardized exchange-traded contracts.

Options: Options are of two types - calls and puts. Calls give the buyer the right but not the
obligation to buy a given quantity of the underlying asset, at a given price on or before a given future
date. Puts give the buyer the right, but not the obligation to sell a given quantity of the underlying asset
at a given price on or before a given date.

 Market Participants

There are three types of participants in the derivatives market – 1.Hedgers, 2.Traders (also called
speculators) and 3.Arbitrageurs. An individual may play different roles in different market

They face risk associated with the prices of underlying assets and use derivatives to reduce their risk.
Corporations, investing institutions and banks all use derivative products to hedge or reduce their
exposures to market variables such as interest rates, share values, bond prices, currency exchange rates
and commodity prices.

They try to predict the future movements in prices of underlying assets and based on the view, take
positions in derivative contracts. The Derivatives are preferred over underlying asset for speculation
purpose, as they offer leverage, are less expensive (cost of transaction is generally lower than that of
the underlying) and are faster to execute in size (high volumes market).

The Arbitrage is a deal that produces profit by exploiting a price difference in a product in two
different markets. Arbitrage originates when a trader purchases an asset cheaply in one location and
simultaneously arranges to sell it at a higher price in another location. Some opportunities are unlikely
to persist for very long, since arbitrageurs would rush in to these transactions, thus closing the price
gap at different locations.

Chapter: 2

Varadharajan.P and Vikkraman.P (2011) in their study has stated that an investor decides on an
investment after getting opinion from family, friends and colleagues, Broker’s recommendation and
also other professional advice. The investor also takes into consideration the market situations like
financial results of the companies, bonus issue, price earnings ratio and the reputation of the company.

Pasha (2013) studied retail investors’ perception on financial derivatives in India. It is found that 55
percent of the small investors (respondents) are of the opinion that derivatives are new, complex, and
high-tech products. 38 percent of the respondents, who are familiar with derivatives, said derivatives
are not new, complex, and high – tech products. And the remaining 7 percent of the investors could not
answer the question. This shows that a large number of investors are not familiar with derivatives. The
study also found that 62 percent of the small investors are of the opinion that derivatives are purely
speculative and highly leveraged instruments.

Bhatt. N Dr. Babraju conducted study on ―Perception of Investor towards Derivatives as On

Investment Avenue in the year 2014. The derivatives are risk management tool that support in
effective management of risk by various stockholders. Derivatives provide a chance to transfer risk
from the one who wish to avoid it: to one who wish to agree it. India‘s experience with the
introduction of the equity derivatives market has been really encouraging and successful. The
derivatives turnover on the NSE has surpassed the equity market turnover.

Tripathi (2014) studied investor’s perception towards derivative trading. The study shows Indian
investors mainly invest their money in real estates and insurance as they are the options offering great
returns with minimum risk associated with it. It is found that more than 75 percent of investors are
aware about derivatives, out of which 74 percent have invested in derivatives. Most of the users often
invest 10 percent – 20 percent of their total investment in derivatives followed by users who invest 20
percent – 35 percent of their total investment in derivatives. Out of derivative users 76 percent
investors have invested in options which offer benefits like risk diversification and promises their
investors great profits with minimum investment. The study concluded that derivative market is
dominated by male investor with 72 percent whereas female investors are only 28 percent. He has
found in his research that education, profession and gender do not affect the derivative investing
behaviour. However income is found to have a significant role on derivatives. He also added that
investors are using these securities for different purposes namely risk management, profit
enhancement, speculation and arbitrage.

Dr. Y. Nagaraju (2014) studied investors' perception towards derivative instruments and markets. The
study shows that even though most people look at derivatives with fear, they should understand the
fact that derivatives help in shifting the risk to the other party. There are many myths that surround
derivative market. All these can be done away with proper system in place. Derivative instruments and
derivative markets are not so the popular among individual investors. Only educated investors with the
help of friends and brokers are investing in this derivative market. The reasons for not investing in this
market are lack of knowledge and very complex nature of instruments. Some people have a wrong
perception about derivatives. The study suggests that measures should be taken to make sure that the
investors get a right picture of the instruments and their risk factors.

Abdulla Yameen (2001) delivered massage, investors will need to be alert to any new development in
capital market and take advantage of the Investor Education and Awareness Campaign program which
to be undertaken by the Capital Market Section to acquaint of the risks and rewards of investing on the
Capital market. Speech was also focused on to create a new breed of financial intermediaries, which
will deal on the market for their clients. These intermediaries have to be professionals with quite
advanced knowledge on stock exchange operations, techniques, law and companies valuation.
Investors depend to a large extent on their professional advice when investing on the market.
Furthermore, these intermediaries must be men of integrity and honesty as they would deal with
clients‟ money Confidence of investors in these professionals is a key to the success of the capital

P. M. Deleep Kumar and G. Raju (2001) showed that the capital market is becoming more and
more risky and complex in nature so that ordinary investors are unable to keep track of its movement
and direction. The study revealed that the Indian market is probably more volatile than developed
country markets, which is probably why a much higher proportion of savings in developed countries
go into equities. More than half of individual shareowners in India belonged to just five cities. The
distribution of share ownership by States and Union Territories show that just five States accounted for
74.7 per cent of the country’s share ownership population and 71.7 per cent of the aggregate value of
the shareholdings of individuals in India. Among the five States Maharashtra tops the list with Gujarat
as a distant second followed by West Bengal, Delhi and Tamil Nadu. In the midpoint of the study also
argued that introduction of derivatives is the first step to hedge the risk of unfavourable movement in
the market. This will also lower transaction cost and provides depth and liquidity to the market.

Devi. S and Renuga Bharathi, (2008) found that the following factors namely advertisement, risk
factor, investor grievances, investment pattern, change in life style, stock broker service, investment
knowledge, investment information, personal savings, size of investment, economic condition and
decreasing level of sensex influences the perception of investors on investment.

Arvid O.I. Hoffmann, Thomas Post and Joost M.E. Pennings (2012) in their research found out
that investor perception during 2008-09 financial crisis fluctuate significantly with risk tolerance and
risk perceptions being less volatile than return expectations. During the worst months of the crisis
investors’ return expectations and risk tolerance decrease while risk perception increase. Towards the
end of the crisis, investor perceptions recover. They also documented substantial swings in trading and
risk-taking behaviour that are driven by changes in investors’ perceptions. Overall individual investors
continued to trade actively and did not de-risk their investment portfolios during the crisis.
