OIC Launches New Investor Education Mobile App

 

Chicago, IL — January 15, 2014

The Options Industry Council (OIC) announced today a new mobile application for iOS devices. Investors can now enjoy OIC's options education on the go by downloading the OIC app available for iPhone® and iPad® devices. This free app offers select OIC courses, an interactive strategy section, and delivers the latest information on OIC's upcoming events and seminars.

With the introduction of this mobile app, OIC's educational content and Investor Services resource center are even more accessible than before. Users can take mobile courses, study strategies and instantly connect to the Investor Services live help center all within the app. It currently offers two courses, The Language of Options and Options Basics, which are divided into several different lessons. Mobile users can test their knowledge by taking a quiz at the end of each lesson and share their scores via social media. There's also convenient in-app registration and social media sharing for OIC's upcoming seminars and events, which users can view on the homepage and main menu section.

The launch of this app marks OIC's first venture into mobile applications and a new platform for investors to access OIC's educational content and build their options knowledge. OIC plans to expand its mobile course offerings and educational content in later versions of the app.

You can learn more about the app on OIC's website at: www.OptionsEducation.org/mobileapp.
