US investors look to equity derivatives


Greenwich Associates says that US institutional investors are increasing their use of equity derivatives overall, though their use of some complex products is waning.

According to the Connecticut-based consultancy, single-stock listed options, vanilla over-the-counter (OTC) options, exchange-traded funds (ETFs) and equity swaps are coming into more widespread use. ETFs, for example, are now used by 75% of the investors it recently surveyed - 18% more than two years ago.
