Coffee With Cott

Welcome to Coffee With Cott, a new blog from The Options Industry Council's Financial Advisor Division that is focused on the advisor space. Written by Eric Cott, a former advisor who has been the Director of Financial Advisor Education at the OIC since he developed the organization's outreach program in 2009, Coffee With Cott has a two-fold goal: to provide unique insight on the responsible use of exchange-listed options, and to help you have conversations with your clients about these versatile risk management assets. Along the way, there might be a few sports references or humorous takes, but Coffee With Cott will mostly be about offering percolating insight on options strategies, as well as practice management ideas.
