OIC Educational Series: How Options can be an Efficient Use of Capital

OIC Educational Series

Everyone knows investing can be challenging. However, it can also be rewarding, and a key to successful investing can be making the right decisions about capital allocations. While stocks, bonds, real estate or other assets undoubtedly have their place, the options marketplace should also be considered.

The Options Industry Council (OIC) has a dedicated team of professionals who have a single goal, which is to help investors understand the risks and benefits of options so that they can figure out whether options might have a place in their investing plans. Working alongside options-industry instructors, we educate investors all year long on a variety of options-related topics, and in the third quarter of 2019, we're thrilled to be offering a series of live sessions on one important theme: How Options can be an Efficient Use of Capital.

Throughout the quarter, we'll discuss what investors should know before buying options, describe how options can be used for income, and provide details on LEAPS®, volatility, directional strategies and spreads. We're hosting webinars in July, August and September, and we'll wrap up the quarter with our keystone event, a simulcast from Dallas that will also be live online, so that you can join from anywhere in the world.

Whether you're just getting started or you're experienced in the options market, OIC has something for you in our upcoming events. Even better? Every one of our sessions is free. You just have to sign up. It's quick and will ensure your spot for OIC's unbiased and informational options-education sessions in the third quarter. Plus, registration gives you access to an on-demand event replay that you can watch at any time. Register today, and we'll see you soon.
