AfsSec can also establish warrants for your portfolio. A warrant is a form of derivative that derives its value from an underlying instrument. Some give holders the right to buy or to sell the underlying instrument such as a share or ETF to the warrant issuer for a particular price.
Warrants can help investors achieve leveraged returns, diversify into a market or sector, protect the value of underlying assets or earn extra income.
