In the following brochure, we will introduce you to the fixed income derivatives traded at Eurex and illustrate their most significant applications. Futures on fixed income secu- rities ("fixed income futures") and options on fixed income futures are jointly referred to as "fixed income derivatives". The basic characteristics of fixed income securities and their key analytical figures are initially explained to provide a better understanding of these products. Basic knowledge of the securities business is a prerequisite. Explanations of fixed income securities contained in this brochure predominantly refer to those issues on which Eurex fixed income derivatives are based.
