In addition to debt instruments in the short term, the so-called derivative financial instruments.

A derivative financial instrument (derivative, derivative, futures) is a financial instrument whose value depends on the value of another instrument (in particular a security) to which the derivative has been issued. Derivatives perform three basic functions:

1. insurance - derivatives are used to hedge against the increase (decrease) in the value of the original instrument;

2. speculative - derivatives are used to achieve the benefits of an increase (decrease) in the value of the primary instrument;

3. ensuring the desired structure of revenues.

Each derivative is a contract characterized by cash flows paid or received by participants of this contract. In this connection, instruments can be distinguished:

1. based on futures contracts;

2. based on options.

In the case of futures transactions, there is always positive cash flow - there will always be cash flow on the dates specified in the contract (settlement dates), because this type of transaction creates an irrevocable liability - the need to perform the contract within a predetermined period.

The basic types of this type of transaction are given in the figure below:

Futures contract - it is a financial instrument that obliges two parties to enter into transactions in the future on the terms specified in the contract. The issuer of the contract takes a short position and undertakes to deliver the subject of the contract on the agreed date.

The subject of the contract assumes the role of the primary instrument.
