Equity Derivatives

Customized Strategies to Optimize Performance and Minimize Risk.

BTIG's Equity Derivatives team provides our clients with access to world-class expertise in equity derivative strategies that enhance portfolio performance and minimize risk. We work collaboratively with investment managers and apply our expertise throughout the entire lifecycle of the trade. This includes offering pre-trade analysis, structuring and execution of the trade, post-trade management and reporting. We offer this comprehensive service as part of our ongoing commitment to helping our clients achieve their objectives.

Pre-Trade Analysis & Structure

Our team works closely with portfolio managers and traders to develop strategies for hedging needs, directional exposure and volatility trading. We strategize and execute trades with each of our client's objective and opinion regarding the underlying security - price targets, time horizons, volatility and/or hedging parameters. We continuously search for opportunities in names and sectors applicable to our clients’ needs so we can deliver relevant and insightful trading strategies and color.

Trade Execution

Our agency desk sources liquidity from our electronic platforms, floor exchanges and the community of upstairs market makers and volatility funds. BTIG's Equity Derivatives team offers superior execution that is efficient, cost effective and discreet. At BTIG, our interests are always aligned with those of our clients.

Post-Trade Management

Our Equity Derivatives team provides comprehensive post-trade management as a value-added service aimed at helping our clients succeed. Once a trade is executed, we have the capability to store its structure in our internal position/risk management system. We continue to provide recommendations to the client on how to best optimize their option structures to create a risk-adjusted return profile that matches their specific trading objectives.
