The Use of Derivatives in Financial Planning

Understand how to use derivatives to add value to your clients' portfolios. A large percentage of retail advisors still view derivatives in a negative light or have an opaque understanding of them, but these same derivative instruments have now become a very important part of current portfolio management strategies. This topic will explain why advisors should, and need to use, derivatives in financial planning and learn three ways advisors can best add value to clients: 1. Gaining exposure or adding value, 2. Managing inflows and outflows, 3. Using derivatives to reduce risks.
