The traditional company warrants market is set to be eclipsed by a new market which should offer huge opportunities for active investors. Revised regulations have paved the way for a new 'covered warrants' market in London. The number of warrants available for trading by private investors on the London Stock Exchange (LSE) will multiply many times over. Warrants will become available on a broad range of blue-chip companies, sector baskets, and on both UK and overseas indices. Investors will be able to buy both calls and puts. The vast majority of the new warrants will be exercisable for cash which will mean they can be traded free of stamp duty. This book is intended as a primer for investors new to covered warrants, although more experienced investors may also find some value in the timely information about the formation of the new market in London. Readers used to dealing in traditional listed warrants in the UK will find the new covered warrants quite different. Jargon is unavoidable, but it is explained in the text and in the glossary at the back.
