From the Currency Risk Management section of the Risk Management series. This is one of three books in the Currency Risk Management series that examine the use of derivatives in the foreign exchange markets. In this book, options are described in detail, as is the process by which they are bought and sold, why they are used, and who uses them. Having described the key features, the risks and potential gains, the text proceeds to examine premiums, over-the-counter options, exchange-traded options, and second and third generation options packages.

This expansive new range of risk management texts has undergone extensive re-writing to give each book in the series an international perspective. Each explains and analyses core aspects of risk assessment and management in a way invaluable to students and useful to practitioners. All of these titles adopt a practical and clear approach to their subject. All are fully updated versions of a series of books previously produced by training experts at BPP.
