Long-Term Forward Contract

A non-standardized, over-the-counter agreement in which one party agrees to buy a certain asset from the other at a certain price, at a certain time more than one year in the future. Because there is little secondary market for any forward contract, long-term forward contracts are zero-sum games; one party will win and the other will lose.
