OIC Expands Outreach Efforts, Partnerships in China
OIC delegates made their fourth trip to China this past October to help educate China's investor base about options. Visits to Shanghai, Shenzhen and Taipei further established relationships with exchanges, regulators, industry associations and firms to position OIC as a trusted source for education as China prepares to launch exchange-listed options.
At the invitation of the Shanghai Municipal Bureau of Foreign Experts Affairs, OIC presented advanced options education to more than 200 industry professionals in Shanghai and met with senior officers at Guo Tai Jun An Futures, China Financial Futures Exchange and Shanghai Stock Exchange. In Shenzhen, delegates presented options education and participated in discussions with the Shenzhen Stock Exchange and China Capital Markets Institute, an industry cooperative under the direction of China Securities Regulatory Commission. OIC launched its Train the Trainers program in Taipei. The program is a cooperative initiative with the Taipei Foundation of Finance (TFF) to train industry professionals to teach Chinese investors about options.
Earlier this year, OIC and TFF signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) and entered into a content sharing agreement. Partnerships such as this will help OIC leverage its reach in China and provide additional opportunities for investors, professionals, regulators and industry organizations to learn about exchange-listed options.
