Preface

DON CHANCE

As this book goes into its eighth edition, I continue to be amazed at how the derivatives

and risk management world have evolved. When I originally drafted a plan for the first

edition, I was told by some publishers that there was no market for a textbook on options and futures, as it was pitched at that time, and that the concept had no future. Fortunately, a predecessor of Cengage had the foresight to see that the idea was merely

ahead of its time. While much has changed in the financial world over these years, these

tools have remained an important force in our economy. Yes, I know that some say

derivatives, particularly mortgage securitization and credit default swaps, contributed to

our current economic problems. I would only counter that by noting that fire has also

contributed to death and destruction but we use it safely and productively every day.

We do so because we are informed about the costs, risks, and benefits. And that is the

purpose of this book.

Students who take a course based on this book will consist of three types: those who

will never use derivatives, those who will someday be dealers and therefore will provide

derivative products, and those who will use derivatives to solve problems and therefore

will be the end users who buy derivatives. For those who will never use derivatives, this

book will be valuable in the same sense that it is important to know such things as the

seven warning signs of cancer regardless of whether you ever have cancer. Being informed makes us better human beings and in particular, business decision makers. Students who become dealers will obviously need to know a lot more than is in this book. It

is our hope that the book will be a stepping stone toward an exciting career. For those

who become end users, the book will give the foundations that will make them smart

shoppers in the market for derivatives. It will teach them the importance of understanding the proper use of derivatives and how they are valued.

From a personal perspective, I am celebrating close to a quarter-century as an expert

in derivatives. My decision to go into this area is one I have never regretted. I know it

was probably just luck that I chose a field that would really take off. It was a bet I never

hedged and in that sense, I took a risk without properly assessing the possible consequences. We should never make decisions that way, but sometimes we get away with it.

I feel lucky in a way most people cannot imagine.

I am also lucky to have had strong support from my wife Jan, who knows this is what

I do but doesn’t really want to know any more about it than that. I don’t blame her. We

derivatives people sometimes seem off in our own little world of geekiness. Fortunately,

there are people who still love us.

ROBERT BROOKS

As we are now well into the twenty-first century and have experienced both periods of

financial calm as well as financial turmoil, the need for quality content on financial derivatives and risk management has never been greater. It is a privilege for me to collaborate with Don on such a successful book. My goal continues to be aiding students in

understanding how to make financial derivatives theory work in practice. The financial

xvi

Preface

xvii

derivatives and risk management subject area is a rapidly changing field that provides

those who learn to navigate its complexities the opportunity for a rewarding career. By

straddling the fence between the academic community and the practitioner community, I

seek to continually enhance our book’s quest to equip the next generation of financial

risk managers.

I would like to encourage college students and others reading this book to consider a

rewarding career in this field of study. From serving in a corporation, a financial services

firm, or an investment management company, the ability to provide wise financial counsel leads to a fulfilling career. Knowing that you have contributed to protecting your firm

from inappropriate financial risk or investing in an unsuitable strategy for your clients is

both financially rewarding as well as personally gratifying.

I am deeply grateful to my wife Ann and my children Joshua, Stephen, Paul, Rebekah,

Phillips, and Rachael. At the time of this writing, four children are teenagers providing

constant opportunities to refine teaching financial principles as well as apply risk management in practice. My family is a constant source of encouragement and they are all

very supportive of my activities related to this book.

DON AND BOB

We would like to thank Mike Reynolds, Executive Editor, Finance, for his continuing

support over the years; and Elizabeth Lowry, our Development Editor, for solving in a

timely manner every problem that arose during the project. We would also like to thank

Marketing Manager Nathan Anderson, to whose expertise we trust the future sales of the

book; and Abigail Greshik, our organized and detail-oriented Content Production Manager for the text.

Also, we would like to thank all those people who reviewed the 7th edition to make

the 8th edition even stronger:

Karan Bhanot, University of Texas at San Antonio

David Enke, The University of Tulsa

Merlyn Foo, Athabasca University

Christine Jiang, University of Memphis

D.K. Malhotra, Philadelphia University

Gautam Vora, University of New Mexico

A special thanks is due to John Olagues, Jim Binder, Stan Leimer, Regina Millison,

and Pratik Dhar for comments, answers, and assistance. Also, we would like to thank

all of the people over the years who have both taught from this book and learned from

it. They have, all along, generously provided constructive comments and corrections.

After twenty years, this list of names is too long to print without leaving someone out.

So to all of you unnamed heroes, we express our thanks.

We always used to feel that the errors in a book should, through attrition over the

years, disappear. We have learned otherwise. Although no one wants errors to remain,

if you ever find a book in its eighth edition without any errors, you can be assured that

the author is simply correcting old material and not keeping the book up-to-date. With a

field as dynamic as derivatives, extensive changes are inevitable. Despite Herculean efforts to cleanse this work, there are surely some errors remaining. We feel fairly confident, however, that they are not errors of fact, but merely accidental oversights and

perhaps typos that just did not get caught as we read and re-read the material. Unlike

most authors, who we think would rather hide known errors, we maintain a list of such

In the course of running a business, decisions are made in the presence of risk. A decision

maker can confront one of two types of risk. Some risks are related to the underlying nature of the business and deal with such matters as the uncertainty of future sales or the

cost of inputs. These risks are called business risks. Most businesses are accustomed to

accepting business risks. Indeed, the acceptance of business risks and its potential rewards

are the foundations of capitalism. Another class of risks deals with uncertainties such

as interest rates, exchange rates, stock prices, and commodity prices. These are called

financial risks.

Financial risks are a different matter. The paralyzing uncertainty of volatile interest

rates can cripple the ability of a firm to acquire financing at a reasonable cost, which enable it to provide its products and services. Firms that operate in foreign markets can have

excellent sales performance offset if their own currency is strong. Companies that use raw

materials can find it difficult to obtain their basic inputs at a price that will permit profitability. Managers of stock portfolios deal on a day-to-day basis with wildly unpredictable

and sometimes seemingly irrational financial markets.

Although our financial system is replete with risk, it also provides a means of dealing

with risk in the form of derivatives. Derivatives are financial instruments whose returns

are derived from those of other financial instruments. That is, their performance depends

on how other financial instruments perform. Derivatives serve a valuable purpose in providing a means of managing financial risk. By using derivatives, companies and individuals can transfer, for a price, any undesired risk to other parties who either have risks

that offset or want to assume that risk.

Although derivatives have been around in some form for centuries, their growth has

accelerated rapidly during the last several decades. They are now widely used by corporations, financial institutions, professional investors, and individuals. Certain types of derivatives are traded actively in public markets, similar to the stock exchanges with which

you are probably already somewhat familiar. The vast majority of derivatives, however, are

created in private transactions in over-the-counter markets. Just as a corporation may buy

a tract of land for the purpose of ultimately putting up a factory, so may it also engage in a

derivatives transaction. In neither case is the existence or amount of the transaction easy

for outsiders to determine. Nonetheless, we have fairly accurate data on the amount of derivatives activity in public markets and reasonably accurate data, based on surveys, on the

amount of derivatives activity in private markets. We shall explore the public market data

in later chapters. If you need to be convinced that derivatives are worth studying, consider

this: The Bank for International Settlements of Basel, Switzerland, estimated that at the end

of 2007, over-the-counter derivatives contracts outstanding worldwide covered underlying

assets of over $596 trillion. In comparison, gross domestic product in the United States at

Introduction

the end of 2007 was about $15 trillion. As we shall see later, measuring the derivatives

market this way can give a false impression of the size of the market. Nonetheless, the

market value of these contracts totals about $9.1 trillion, making the derivatives market a

sizable force in the global economy.

This book is an introductory treatment of derivatives. Derivatives can be based on

real assets, which are physical assets and include agricultural commodities, metals, and

sources of energy. Although a few of these will come up from time to time in this book,

our focus will be directed toward derivatives on financial assets, which are stocks,

bonds/loans, and currencies. In this book you will learn about the characteristics of the

institutions and markets where these instruments trade, the manner in which derivative

prices are determined, and the strategies in which they are used. Toward the end of

the book, we will cover the way in which derivatives are used to manage the risk of a

company.

This chapter welcomes you to the world of derivatives and provides an introduction to

or a review of some financial concepts that you will need in order to understand derivatives. Let us begin by exploring the derivatives markets more closely and defining what we

mean by these types of instruments.

DERIVATIVE MARKETS AND INSTRUMENTS

An asset is an item of ownership having positive monetary value. A liability is an item of

ownership having negative monetary value. The term “instrument” is used to describe either assets or liabilities. Instrument is the more general term, vague enough to encompass

the underlying asset or liability of derivative contracts. A contract is an enforceable legal

agreement. A security is a tradeable instrument representing a claim on a group of assets.

In the markets for assets, purchases and sales require that the underlying asset be delivered either immediately or shortly thereafter. Payment usually is made immediately,

although credit arrangements are sometimes used. Because of these characteristics, we

refer to these markets as cash markets or spot markets. The sale is made, the payment

is remitted, and the good or security is delivered. In other situations, the good or security

is to be delivered at a later date. Still other types of arrangements allow the buyer or

seller to choose whether or not to go through with the sale. These types of arrangements

are conducted in derivative markets.

In contrast to the market for assets, derivative markets are markets for contractual

instruments whose performance is determined by the way in which another instrument

or asset performs. Notice that we referred to derivatives as contracts. Like all contracts,

they are agreements between two parties—a buyer and a seller—in which each party does

something for the other. These contracts have a price, and buyers try to buy as cheaply

as possible while sellers try to sell as dearly as possible. This section briefly introduces

the various types of derivative contracts: options, forward contracts, futures contracts,

and swaps and related derivatives.

Options

An option is a contract between two parties—a buyer and a seller—that gives the buyer

the right, but not the obligation, to purchase or sell something at a later date at a price

agreed upon today.

The option buyer pays the seller a sum of money called the price or premium. The

option seller stands ready to sell or buy according to the contract terms if and when

the buyer so desires. An option to buy something is referred to as a call; an option to

sell something is called a put. Although options trade in organized markets, a large
