Cash settlement contracts

Futures contracts such as stock index futures that settle for cash and do not involve delivery of the underlying.

Cash Settlement Contracts

Futures or option contracts in which the counterparties agree that instead of delivering the underlying assets at the execution of the contract, one delivers their cash equivalent. For example, suppose someone bought a call contract taking on the obligation to buy a certain number of barrels of oil, should the option be exercised. If/when the option is exercised, the call holder pays the strike price. In exchange, the counterparty delivers the cash value of the agreed upon number of barrels of oil. Such a transaction is usually netted between the parties so that cash only changes hands once.
