Term Definition

A warrant is a certificate which entitles the holder to buy (call warrant) or sell (put warrant) a fixed number of shares in a company at a pre-determined price on an expiry date. Unlike a convertible bond, a warrant however pays no interest and becomes worthless upon expiry. A warrant may be issued either by a company to raise funds or sometimes by a financial institution which may hold shares in that company. A warrant can thus be used to bet on the future price of an underlying share, but a fraction of the cost buy the underlying shares. Warrant are usually traded on a stock exchange like shares.

Wrap Fee

A wrap fee is an recurring charge for bundled investment services such as advisory, switching, administrative and brokerage fees, levied by investment advisers on their clients.
