Single Stock Futures (SSFs)

Single Stock Futures (SSFs) can be an addition to almost any portfolio. They provide an avenue to hedge your share exposure risk, as well as to speculate on share price movements. SSFs offer gearing and are cheaper to trade than direct share investment. You can buy or sell SSFs at any time, with no up-tick rule to worry about.
