Definition of embedded derivative
An embedded derivative is a derivative instrument that is embedded in another contract. An embedded derivative can arise from deliberate financial engineering and intentional shifting of certain risks between parties. Many embedded derivatives, however, arise inadvertently through market practices and common contracting arrangements. For example, gas contracts often contain 'embedded derivatives' often some kind of optionality (take or pay for example) and indexation to oil or electricity prices.
