About the CBOE Risk Management Conference
The annual CBOE Risk Management Conference (RMC) is the premiere financial industry conference designed for institutional users of equity derivatives and volatility products. Now in its 31st year in the U.S., the conference is also held annually in Europe and beginning in 2015, Asia.
CBOE RMC is an educational forum dedicated to exploring the latest products, trading strategies and tactics used to manage risk exposure, enhance yields and lower portfolio volatility. CBOE RMC brings together top traders, strategists and researchers, enabling participants to learn the state-of-the-art in risk management from true experts in the field.
CBOE RMC’s three-day agenda covers a variety of concepts, challenging attendees to think differently about how they manage 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.
CBOE, the largest U.S. options exchange and creator of listed options, continues to set the bar for options and volatility trading through product innovation, trading technology and investor education. CBOE offers equity, index and ETP options, including proprietary products, such as S&P 500 options (SPX), the most active U.S. index option, and options and futures on the CBOE Volatility Index (the VIX Index). Other products engineered by CBOE include equity options, security index options, Weeklys options, LEAPS options, FLEX options, and benchmark products such as the CBOE S&P 500 BuyWrite Index (BXM). CBOE is home to the world-renowned Options Institute and www.cboe.com, the go-to place for options and volatility trading resources. CBOE is regulated by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), with all trades cleared by the OCC.
