Analysis of the effectiveness of hedging and derivative strategies in a varying market environment
Financial derivatives, some of the most useful tools implemented by financial institutions and investors, are of undiminished interest, since their use involves the pursuit of profit through risk taking and risk hedging undertaken by the investment portfolio. The aim of this thesis is to understand, present and analyze products and strategies as well as the factors that influence investment decisions, such as those investigated in international literature. In this context, a critical review of scientific articles is implemented to highlight the latest investment strategies and to point the factors that determine the choice of investment strategies in shifting market conditions, in terms of efficiency. Results indicate that although the topic of financial derivatives has seen tremendous evolution and study, its potentials are unlimited, as new effective strategies constantly arise.
