Contractual Transaction

From Open Risk Manual


Contractual Transaction. An economic transaction which has some contractual basis.

This is distinct from a transaction between business units within an enterprise. This is the usual sense of "Transaction" and forms the basis for all securities and derivatives transactions, while the parent term "Economic Transaction" may also be used to define internal transactions and transactions that have no legal or contractual basis.
