Is a loan sale considered non trading derivative?
is gain on loan sale considered a other than equity security?
Yes, Gain on sale of a loan is not considered as a gain on a non trading derivative.
A derivative is one which fulfills all the following condition:
1) Has no/nil investment.
2) Derives it's value from Underlying.
3) Settlement will take place in future.
Since loan doesn't satisfy all the condition mentioned above, thus it is not a derivative and so it can be treated a non trading derivative.
Yes Gain in Loan Sale is considered as other than equity security because equity is owners/shareholders fund and loan is a debt instrument. Thus, gain on sale of loan is debt security.
