Derivatives Business

KGI Securities’ spirit of professionalism and innovation spurs us to continually develop new derivatives products for our clients. KGI Securities is a market leader in warrants, structured products, convertible bond asset swaps (CBAS), and equity options. Derivatives personnel, who determine product valuation by using trading modules and research hedging strategies, have had great success in the design and issuance of warrants and structured notes, which is deeply appreciated by clients.

In 2017, both the number and value of warrants issued in Taiwan reached record highs. Through the promotional and market-making efforts of players in the warrant business, the domestic market has boomed. KGI Securities, active in issuing warrants, provides investors a full range of warrants, and as a result, KGI ranked second in warrant trading in 2017. Moreover, KGI Securities has continued to adopt proactive market-making strategies and strengthen market-making system effectiveness and stability, aimed at making warrant pricing more transparent, changes of bids and offers more sensitive, and related trading cost more economical. In recognition of this success, KGI Securities was awarded as “Top Five Warrant Issuers” in Taiwan by TWSE.

Capitalizing on our competitive advantages in financial innovation, our structured product business has also led the market. KGI Securities ranked third in the total notional amount of equity-linked notes (ELN) and CBAS in 2017. Moreover, KGI Securities also led in equity option business, with a market share of close to 60 percent in 2017. Overall, KGI Securities has achieved outstanding results in the derivatives business.

Aiming to continually increase the number of investors and volume of transactions, KGI Securities will strive to improve the warrant market-making system and website, organize various promotional activities and inject more resources into the warrant business. Looking ahead, KGI Securities will continue to establish derivative product platforms in the Asia-Pacific region and provide customers with a more comprehensive range of products, while creating stable profits for the company.
