An index warrant is a structured warrant (“SW”) that is issued over an underlying index e.g. the Hang Seng Index or the FTSE Bursa Malaysia KLCI. The index call warrant tracks the performance of the underlying index i.e. it will tend to increase in value when the underlying index increases. The opposite is true for an index put warrant, whose price will go up when the underlying index decreases.
