A derivative is a financial product that is derived from a another asset, index, or value. An equity derivative is a financial product that is derived from a stock or stock index. Examples of equity derivatives are futures, which is the obligation to purchase an equity or equity index in the future. A call option, which is the right, but not the obligation, to purchase an equity or equity index in the future. A put option, which is the right, but not the obligation, to sell an equity or equity index at some point in the future.
