Warrants can offer all of the benefits of share ownership, including dividends and franking credits with a reduced capital requirement. Warrants offer a diverse range of investment alternatives with varying degrees of risk and associated return for an outlay that can be significantly less than the outright purchase of shares. Warrants are available to suit a wide range of investment strategies across a broad range of requirements and risk return profiles - from the conservative investor of a Self Managed Superannuation Funds (SMSF) right up to the speculative day traders.
Warrants offer an ability to diversify a portfolio through leverage, to generate income streams with dividends and franking credits, and to protect a portfolio.
The Baker Young Derivatives Desk has specific expertise in two key areas:
Self Managed Superannuation Funds (SMSF)
The use of warrants specifically designed with SMSF in mind. Products that can deliver increased returns with qualified leverage and risk, while offering full access to franking credits and dividends. The “dividend yield play” can be of substantial benefit to a SMSF.
Market traders are also able to benefit from out expertise in the recently released “mini” trading warrants. Mini’s are the perfect trading product for aggressive short term investors and offer the ability to go short or long in a similar fashion to Contracts for Difference (CFD’s).
Mini’s are ideal for day traders, aggressive speculators, or alternately for portfolio protection
