There are two main types of warrants:
Subscription warrants are issued by listed companies and give holders the right to buy the underlying shares of the companies.
Derivative warrants are issued by financial institutions. Unlike subscription warrants which must be call warrants, derivative warrants can be call or put warrants.
Compared with stocks, warrants have more attributes, including:
Warrant Issuer: Company which issues the warrants. It can be a listed company (in the case of “subscription warrants”) or a third party such as a financial institution (in the case of “derivative warrants”)
Underlying asset: It can be a single stock, a basket of stocks, an index, a currency, a commodity or a futures contract (e.g. oil futures) etc
Types of embedded rights : A call warrant gives you the right to buy the underlying asset at a pre-set price; a put warrant gives you the right to sell the underlying asset at a pre-set price
Exercise price: The price at which you buy or sell the underlying asset when exercising a warrant
Conversion ratio: This refers to the number of units of the underlying asset exchanged when exercising a unit of a warrant
Expiry date: The date on which a warrant will expire and become worthless if the warrant is not exercised<
Exercise style: With an American warrant, you can exercise it to buy or sell the underlying asset on or before the expiry date; a European warrant allows it to be exercised only on the expiry date
