Welcome to the SCN Series.
Today’s Term is: Hedge
A hedge is an investment that protects your finances from a risky situation.
It is done to reduce the risk of adverse price movements (rise or fall) in an asset. Normally, a hedge consists of taking an offsetting position in a related security, such as a future contract.
In simpler words, It is like making an alternate investment in 2nd security so as to reduce the adverse effect of price movements in 1st security.
*A perfect hedge (100%) eliminates all risk in a portfolio.
