A bond option provides the buyer with the right, but not the obligation, to buy or sell a given bond at a fixed price either at or before a specific date. Options are written on government bonds and are traded on an OTC basis.
ICAP’s Bond Options team has the knowledge and expertise to provide an exceptional broking service for customers around the world. We offer investors the ability to hedge the risk of their bond portfolios or speculate on the direction of bond prices with limited risk exposure.
Bond Options are most often traded over-the-counter, and ICAP’s desks play a leading role in ensuring liquidity across the global bond options markets.
