Why hedge with futures or options instead of swaps with your bank?
Futures and options on futures trade on regulated, transparent exchanges. This provides a more level playing field for all participants. Why is this important? Because it gives mid-market companies the very same hedging tools available to the largest banks and public companies. Rather than pay a bank intermediary to stand between you and the futures market, you can access the market directly. In doing so, you can execute your hedging strategy with less “friction”. We’ve observed that these costs can be particularly high for mid-market companies, especially those in sectors banks view as risky. To learn more, see our article Futures vs Forwards.
