Financial instruments

Financial instruments include both financial securities and financial contracts. Financial securities include: equity securities issued by joint-stock companies, debt securities, with the exception of bills of exchange and interest-bearing notes, units or shares in undertakings for collective investment. Financial contracts, also referred to as "financial futures", are futures contracts that appear on a list established by decree.
