Equity represents ownership in a company acquired through contribution of capital, which is required to set up or run a business. This capital is raised through issue of shares to the public or a group of private persons, where each share represents a proportion of the stake on the assets and profits of the company. These shares are either bought directly from the company through an offer, or traded (bought and sold) on the stock exchanges.


Despite the risk involved, investment in equities is known to offer investors high returns in the long run. Equities investment not only helps an individual in wealth creation over time, but also builds the nation’s capital in the process.

  • Entitlement to company’s profits:The holder of a company’s equity or shares is entitled to a share of profit in the company. This share of profit is received through dividends.

  • Profit through value enhancement: A shareholder can also make profits by selling the shares on the stock exchange at a price higher than the purchase price.

  • High Returns: Even though equity is a risky asset, returns on investments in equity are known to beat inflation in the long-term, and thus help in wealth creation.

For example, under the recently introduced Rajiv Gandhi Equity Savings Scheme, investment upto Rs. 50000/- in the equity of listed companies is tax deductible. Also, the dividend received by an investor through equity shares is exempt in the hands of the investor.

A derivative is an instrument which derives its value from the underlying asset. The asset can be equity, a commodity, a currency or even an index. Derivatives are usually in the form of a contract, where the buyer is under an obligation to buy or seller is under an obligation to sell the underlying asset at a specified price on a specified date in the future


Derivatives have traditionally been used by businesses to hedge against different types of risks, and have been in existence for decades. With well-planned strategies based on a thorough study of the markets, individual investors and traders can earn handsome returns through derivatives trading.

Investment in derivatives has the following advantages:-

  • Hedging against risk: Derivatives are used for hedging against risk in price fluctuations of the underlying asset. Since the buy (or sell) price at delivery is specified in advance, the buyer/seller can protect his investment from deviation in price trend.

  • Lower costs: The investor needs to pay only for the contract, which is usually much less than the price of the underlying asset, thus offering a benefit of lower costs.

  • Leverage: Trading in derivatives involves use of leverage through margin that is maintained with the broker. Hence, lesser cash is required to be paid at the time of trade


Derivatives are generally short-term trading instruments, and are traded on the exchanges. Similar to stocks, to buy or sell derivatives on the exchange, you need to place orders with your broker, who then executes the order on your behalf.
