German term or phrase: aktiven Einsatz von Derivativen
Can one of you accountants out there please help with this sentence:
Die Risikosicherung im Zins- und Währungsbereich erfolgt fast ausschließlich grundgeschäftsbezogen durch den aktiven Einsatz von marktgängigen derivativen Finanzinstrumenten.

My problem is with the "aktiven Einsatz".

Does it mean they are "actively" used, or is there a distinction between asset-side (Aktive derivative ...) and liability-side derivatives?

English translation:ative use of derivative
Explanation:
As to the sentence, I'd rephrase the whole thing into somewhate more standard English phrasing (the German is a bit unusual)

Interest rate and currency risks are hedged solely/exclusively by actively using standard derivatives/deriviative financial instruments based on the underlying transactions/underlyings
