2 Days Workshop on Equity Derivatives Market


India’s tryst with exchange traded derivatives began in the year 2000 when both NSE & BSE commenced trading in equity derivatives. Since then, equity derivatives have come a long way. New products, expanding list of eligible investors, rising volumes and best of risk management framework in derivatives have been the hallmark of the journey of equity derivatives in India so far.

India’s experience with the equity derivatives market has been extremely positive. As per the NSE data as on Nov. 4, 2011 total turnover in equity derivatives segment stands at Rs 934,286 million as compared to equity segment of Rs 100,885 million. The turnover of derivatives on the NSE increased from Rs 23,654 million in 2000-01 to Rs 292,482,215 million in 2010-11. The derivatives turnover at NSE registered a gain of 65.6% in FY 2010-11 over the previous year. It clearly indicates that the derivatives market is developing both in terms of increase in investor awareness and usage of leverage. As a result, investors are trading more in derivatives than equity market segment.

This fast paced growth of derivatives market also created the dearth of practically trained derivatives trading professionals and hence emerged the excellent career opportunities for budding professionals in the area of jobbing, trading, research and analysis and other related domains.

It was by far the best workshop, rather than a lecture that we are used to. I could not understand share market and its working before this. You were good. Though I was not too excited about the finance before. But it was a transformation.
