The financial derivative products offered at Monex are the following

Underlying Assets: Exchange rate and IPC


Contracts that establish, in the present, the obligation to buy or sell in the future, a certain amount of an underlying asset at a determined fixed price. Entering into a forward contract does not imply an initial cost. Depending on your credit profile and  financial information, a deposit margin is requested as guarantee with the purpose of minimizing the risk of non-compliance.


Contracts that today grant the right (but not the obligation) to buy (Calls) or sell (Puts) in the future, a certain amount of an underlying asset, which can be determined by the client. A premium is paid for the right to this hedge.

Amongst others.

Underlying Assets: Interest Rates

Interest rate swaps

Exchange of interest rates (variable-fixed or fixed-variable) in the same currency to hedge credits or investments. Entering into a Swap contract does not imply any initial cost.

Cross Currency Swaps

Exchange of a payment flow in a determined currency for another flow of payment in a different currency, to hedge long-term credits or flows; there can be a simultaneous exchange of rates. Entering into a CCY Swap does not imply any initial cost.


Strategy that allows setting a roof over the interest rate, limiting the maximum cost of its debt and benefiting from a lowering-rate scenario. A premium is paid for the right of this coverage.


Strategy that allows establishing a floor under the interest rate, securing the minimum interest to receive by an investment, benefiting from a hike in the interest rates. A premium is paid for the right to this hedge.

Amongst others.
