Interested in buying options?

Then, you are at the right place. When you open an account with us, you cannot invest in options directly. For complex financial products such as options, you need an Active or Trader account to be able to invest in this product, which involves extra appropriateness tests and conditions. Watch the video on the left to learn more about investing in complex financial products, such as options.

What are options?

Options are a type of derivative that gives the buyer of the contract the possibility to buy or sell the underlying asset, depending on if it is a call or a put. Buying a call gives you the right to buy the underlying asset, whereas a put gives you the right to sell. For this right, buyers pay a premium to sellers. Options contracts will always have a specific expiration date and exercise price.

A product for experienced investors

Due to their relatively high risk and complexity, options are not suitable for beginner or inexperienced investors. Investors that choose to invest in options can bear a loss of capital and generally have a shorter investment horizon. Even for the most experienced investors, losses can be substantial.

If you are a beginning investor, it is best to start off with basic financial products, such as stocks, bonds, exchange-traded funds (ETFs) and investment funds. With these, potential losses are limited to your initial investment.

Why invest in options?

Investing in options can help with risk management and speculation. In terms of risk management, investors can use options to hedge price movements of the underlying product. On the other hand, speculators can use options to profit from price movements of the underlying product.

Risk of investing in options

Investing in options can be rewarding, but it comes with high risk. You can end up losing more than your initial investment. In some cases, the maximum loss is unlimited. We recommend only investing in financial products that match your knowledge and experience and only entering into obligations that you can meet with money that you do not need in the short term.
