Small amount, big impact
You are an investor with in-depth knowledge of the financial markets and a high level of risk tolerance. You want to use a small amount of capital to benefit flexibly from a specific trend or hedge your portfolio.
Pure options are classic hedging instruments. If investors expect a share to go up, for example, they can buy a call option, which gives them the right to buy the share or the respective underlying at a predefined price. If investors expect a share to fall, they will buy a put option, which gives them the right to sell the share or the respective underlying at a predefined price.
Options can be used for more than just speculation, and put options in particular can be used for hedging purposes.
UBS offers various instruments that you can use for leveraging.
If the markets do what you expect them to do, you can secure high returns. If you expect the markets to fall, you can also hedge your portfolio.
If you invest in a leverage product, you must be aware of the high level of risk involved. Depending on the instrument used, you could lose the entire amount of capital you have invested if the markets do not develop as you expect.
