What’s a warrant?
Warrants are a kind of derivative which give investors the right to buy or sell the underlying instrument (i.e. an ASX listed equity) to the issuer (i.e. the company that distributed the warrant) for a specific price. More often than not, the underlying instrument is an equity.
Some warrants, such as European ones, require the trader to exercise the transaction on their expiry date. With others, such as American ones, you can exercise any time before the date of expiry. Additionally, warrants tend to be different in the time period between the issue and expiry date, generally spanning years. When a warrant is exercised, newly issued stock is issued, not pre-existing stock.
