Now in its 30th year in the US, the CBOE Risk Management Conference (RMC) is an educational forum dedicated to exploring the latest trading strategies and tactics used to manage risk exposure, enhance yields and lower portfolio volatility using equity derivatives and volatility products.
Returning to Europe for the third time, the CBOE RMC agenda covers a variety of concepts, challenging attendees to think differently about how they manage trade positions, employ hedging techniques, utilize equity derivatives, and model and trade volatility. Topics -- ranging from basic derivatives applications to advanced trading concepts -- are current and relevant. Strategy discussion is overlaid with examples of actual trades and real-market applications.
Sessions are led by practitioners who are leaders in their respective disciplines from Europe and the U.S. Presenters are selected not only for their expertise, but for their ability to communicate complex material in a straightforward, understandable manner. There are no sales pitches.
