Diversify your portfolio and take advantage of leverage
What is a warrant?
A warrant is a financial instrument that gives the holder the right, but not the obligation, to buy (Warrant Call) or sell (Warrant Put) a given quantity of an 'underlying' financial asset, at a price and for a period that are fixed in advance by the financial institution that establishes the liquidity. The evolution of a warrant is linked to that of its underlying asset and therefore has leverage, either upwards or downwards. Unlike shares that never expire, warrants may only be exercised during a specific period of time and lose their value after their expiration date.
