Capital Markets, Derivatives, and the Law

Capital markets provide enterprises with the opportunity to access capital to maintain their level of business activity. Therefore, ensuring the stability of the capital markets and preventing systemic failure are paramount concerns of the Federal Reserve and other financial market regulators. Access to capital markets is facilitated through the use of financial instruments that allow risk to be negotiated among market participants. When using financial instruments to achieve goals, a corporation must be aware of several considerations: the value of the asset underlying the financial instrument, duties or obligations the corporation owes to the other party to the contract, the implications and “worst case scenario” of the performance of the financial instrument, the risk of the transaction, and how the specific transaction can achieve the corporation's goals. This chapter discusses goal-oriented investing, achieving investment goals, and managing risk.

Keywords:   goal-oriented investing, investment goals, risk management, financial instruments, capital market
